This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Imaginary Television (2010).

Well it might get rough in this world for you
It won't get any easier I'll tell you true
There's hard knocks road blocks coming through
You gotta grow up tough but keep your head on too

But sometimes you're gonna need a helping hand
Don't worry about it kid I understand
But you better have a good reason
Don't drag me outta bed unless you really do

Then I'll turn up in a Cadillac
A Chevy or a Honda
I'll be your first responder
A Pullman train an all terrain
A tractor or Hyundai
I'll be your first responder
Whatever it is you won't wait any longer
For your first responder

Well I got nothing better to do with my time
Than bail you outta jail or pay
Your parking fine
Well my daddy would a done the same for me
I paid him back later 'cause nothing's free

But sometimes you're gonna need a helping hand
Don't worry about it boy I understand
But you better have a good reason
Don't drag me outta bed unless you really do

Then I'll turn up in a hybrid
Or a hummer or a Honda
I'll be your first responder
A wicked Maserati a Kia or a Hyundai
I'll be your first responder
Whatever it is you wait any longer
For your first responder

But you're explanation for this mess
Better, not be too weird to confess
Or I'll box your ears till
Your teeth come loose
You better have a good excuse

But sometimes you're gonna need a helping hand
Don't worry about it kid I understand
But you better have a good reason
Don't drag me outta bed unless you really do

Don't worry now you won't have to ponder
Who'll be your first responder
I'll cross any distance or the wild blue yonder
To be your first responder
I'll be your first responder
I'll be your first responder
