The Lyrics

Working in the rain, with his hands wrung cold
Had to fix a circuit, it was a blacked out home
Heard the roar of the clouds, he could picture the streaks
Put his hand on the box, then with an impish shriek

He watched one blue arc, just blow him away
He saw sparks in in eyes, in the very worst way
Caught a bolt of lightning, from a tropical storm
Didn't know if he'd make it, but he knew for sure

That one blue arc, left scars on his hands
Didn't take long, to poop his pants
Just one blue arc, stung way down low
With a one way passage, only one way to go (to ground)

So he had a shockin'
Ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on workin'
Someday he's gonna make it to the top

And be a fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
He's a fuse box hero
He took one blue arc, fuse box hero, sparks in his eyes
Fuse box hero, he'll work it live tonight

On a roof without a vane (weather vane), in a steady downpour
Thought he saw some more blue trouble, in the black rage storm
Like a flash from the past, to that fray in the rain
And that one blue arc made his dear wife pray

But he needs to keep workin'
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on workin'
That boy has got to take the shocks

And be a fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
He's a fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
Yeah, fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
With that one guitar he'll work it live
Circuits live tonight

(guitar solo)

Yeah, he's gotta keep workin'
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on workin'
That boy has got to take the shocks
And be a fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
He's a fuse box hero, got sparks in his eyes
Just one blue arc, put sparks in his eyes
He's just a fuse box hero, aah aah aah
Fuse box hero, fuse box hero, he's got sparks in his eyes
Sparks in his eyes


Standing in the rain, with his head hung low
Couldn't get a ticket, it was a sold out show
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream

He heard one guitar, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store
Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure

That one guitar, felt good in his hands
Didn't take long, to understand
Just one guitar, slung way down low
Was one way ticket, only one way to go

So he started rockin'
Ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
Someday he's gonna make it to the top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero
He took one guitar, juke box hero, stars in his eyes
Juke box hero, he'll come alive tonight

In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the backstage door
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one guitar made his whole life change

Now he needs to keep rockin'
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Yeah, juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
With that one guitar he'll come alive
Come alive tonight

Yeah, he's gotta keep rockin'
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Just one guitar, put stars in his eyes
He's just a juke box hero, aah aah aah
Juke box hero, juke box hero, he's got stars in his eyes
Stars in his eyes

Good job, Lionel...gosh, this OS has SO many repetitive lyrics...you did a decent enough job of varying them a bit considering how omnipresent they really are in the original. Good story-telling job...5's ~ ~ ~

I can't remember TOS that well but it's funny and I'll trust Paul on the pacing. 5s
