It's an S.O.S. sent out telepathically,
Signs of our distress don't allow complacency,
We need restoration now of our integrity and a
Drastic bold reminder of our morality.

The rectifying troop is here,
The ones we have needed all these years
To stop the heinous wrongdoings and verify
Our moral benevolence as a people.

Operation! Operation rescue,
They're here to right our fall,
They've heard a troubled call.

Operation! Operation rescue,
You may wonder where they come from,
But I just wonder why they're here at all.

Yayayayaya yayayayaya yayayayaya yayayaya.

Life ever-after is what they're in business for,
See them brandish the key to our kingdom's door.
It's persuasive, it's a part of you and me
But it's not overwhelming as they wish it to be.

If no one believed in fairy tales,
There would be nothing they could do but fail.
Yet everywhere we look someone is trying to reassure
Our moral benevolence as a people.

Operation! Operation rescue,
They're here to right our fall,
They've heard someone's troubled call.

Operation! Operation rescue,
You may wonder where they come from,
But I just wonder what compels them all.

Operation! Operation rescue,
Operation! Operation rescue,
You may wonder where they come from,
But I just wonder what compels them all.

Yaya yayaya yaya yayaya yaya yayaya.
