Overview

"Guiding Light" is sung by Kelsey Grammer as the character Micky Adams. The song's existence first became known to fans after the title was added to the BMI Repertoire (#31493754) in 2019. The verse melody from "Guiding Light," as it appears in the film's soundtrack, appears to be a reworking of the 1997 Cuomo demo "Fun Time."

Lyrics

Soundtrack

Whenever you call my name
I'll be your guiding light
Helping you win the game
Leading you through the night
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your light

When you're feeling down
And you can't find your way
You just give me a call
I'd fly to Wichita Falls
It ain't that far away
I'll be there in a flash
Change your battery
I'm lighting up the sky
Like it's the Fourth of July
Sweetie, it's on me

Whenever you call my name
I'll be your guiding light
Helping you win the game
You're gonna be alright
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your light

I'll beat the boogeyman
Decimate the dark
Yeah, if he comes around
I'll drive my Plymouth to town
'Cause you're my spiritual spark
Yeah, girl, you set me on fire
And girl, you're getting me higher
I think I'm starting to glow
Wrapped in this colorful robe
Sing it like a choir

I swear to God, I swear to God
I swear to God, I swear to God
I swear to God, I swear to God

Whenever you call my name
I'll be your guiding light
Helping you win the game
You're gonna be alright
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your ba-ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your light

Acoustic demo (dictadroid1_2015_1_30_12_38_23.mp3)

???
???
I will forget, I will forgive
If you must ride
Throw caution to the wind
Giving way to one more kiss
It's really tough to let you go
But I will and I'll let you know

Whenever you call my name
I'll be your guiding light
Helping you through the day
You're gonna be alright
I'll be your gui-i-i-i-i-ide
I'll be your guiding light

I've been around the world before
Burn in the sky like a meteor.
I've seen the place where the tiger sleeps
And I know where he keeps his gold
Cross my heart, I hope to die
I'm really not that type of guy
You gotta think that'd be the case
And I hope that you reach the day

Whenever you call my name
I'll be your guiding light
Helping you win the game
Leading you through the fight
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Ha-ha, I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your gui-i-i-i-i-ide
I'll be your guiding light
