  • Flash! Ah-ah
    Savior of the universe

    Flash! Ah-ah
    He'll save every one of us

    (Seemingly, there is no reason for these extraordinary intergalactical upsets)
    (What's happening, Flash?)
    (Only Doctor Hans Zarkov, formerly at NASA, has provided any explanation)

    Flash! Ah-ah
    He's a miracle

    (This morning's unprecedented solar eclipse is no cause for alarm)

    Flash! Ah-ah
    King of the impossible

    He's for every one of us
    Stand for every one of us
    He saves with a mighty hand
    Every man, every woman
    Every child, it's the mighty Flash

    (General Kala, Flash Gordon approaching)
    (What do you mean Flash Gordon approaching?
    (Open fire! All weapons!)
    (Dispatch war rocket Ajax to bring back his body)

    Flash! Ah-ah
    (Gordon's alive!)

    Flash! Ah-ah
    He'll save every one of us

    Just a man with a man's courage
    You know he's nothing but a man
    And he can never fail
    No one but the pure at heart
    May find the Golden Grail
    Oh-oh, oh-oh

    (Flash, Flash, I love you, but we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth!)
