You put yourself in harm's way,
Though you might die, that we might live,
The Good Samaritan for pay,
Asked often for what few would give.

Though you might die that we might live,
You make a conscious choice to be
Asked often for what few would give,
And to remain while others flee.

You make a conscious choice to be
The calm, well-trained professional,
And to remain while others flee
To face some danger for us all.

The calm, well-trained professional,
The Good Samaritan for pay:
To face some danger for us all,
You put yourself in harm's way.
