Roger waters - Late home tonight, pt. 2

Hark the wire service sing
Clear the satellite link
Check the fax machine
Hold the lead story boys

There's some great pictures coming in
Now the pilot's heartbeat slows
Palms dry out
No questions only orders

And the F-1 glides in nose-up
Through the cloudbase and the
Ground crew cheers as he puts down
His landing gear

Hey boy you're a hero take this cigar
Back home in Cleveland
All the papers and local TV stations
Will be calling your ma

And the farmer's wife
Shoos the cat off the chair
She says sit down my dear
Was the milking all right

Our American friends are late home tonight

Writers: George Roger Waters
