Holding out for a hero

We all need heroes, don't we? At least this is what Bonnie Tyler said in this super-famous song from the eighties. May be you know it from the movie 'Shrek-2'
   How about playing the intro in five parts?:


  Then, find the hidden words:

  _______ have all the good men _______
And  _______ are all the Gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To  _______ the rising odds?

Isn't there a _______ _______ upon a fiery steed?
Late at  _______ I toss and I  _______
And I  _______ of what I  _______

I  _______ a hero, I'm holding out for a hero
'Til the end of the  _______
He's got to be  _______
And he's got to be  _______
And he's got to be  _______ from the fight

I  _______ a hero, I'm holding out for a hero
'Til the morning  _______
He's got to be  _______
And it's got to be  _______
And he's got to be  _______ than  _______
(Larger than life)

Enjoy the song:
