Harold the Helicopter is a song from the fifth series dedicated to Harold. It takes its melody from Harold's theme.

Lyrics

Who do you call when the chips are down
When your back is against the wall
When there's no way out
And time is running out
And you're heading for a fall?
High in the sky
Suddenly comes the hero
You can rely on him
Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies
First to the rescue should help be required
Harold the Helicopter, brave is he
Courage is his name
So look to the skies, should danger arise
Look to the skies, for Harold will be there
He is a natural hero
He is guardian of the skies
And down through the years there are many tales
Of his courage in the skies
Out from the clouds
Suddenly comes the hero
We recognize that sound
Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies
First to the rescue should help be required
Harold the Helicopter, brave is he
Courage is his name
So look to the skies, should danger arise
Reach for the sky, for Harold will be there
Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies
First to the rescue should help be required
Harold the Helicopter, brave is he
Courage is his name
So look to the skies
See how he flies
You can rely
Harold will be there
