"Down In The Cockpit" as written by and Andy Partridge....
Man acting like a farmer and,
He's treated the woman like a poor cow,
We got to treat you better from now,
But man is just a baby and,
He's needing your milk of kindness.
I vow to drink as much as you will allow.

All the way through history,
Man, machine, no mystery,
All the way through history,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.

Down in the cockpit,
Man need the woman to pull him right out of it,
Down in the cockpit,
Man need the woman to pull him right out of it.

Queen wants the castle,
Back from the rascal,
Queen wants the castle.

The girl tribe are growing up and,
Filling the world full with a new soul,
To get so far they payed a high toll.
Try not to make,
The same mistakes,
As man has done, or you'll fall in that hole,
And you will see us changing our role.

All the way through history,
Man, machine, no mystery,
All the way through history,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.

Down in the cockpit,
Man need the woman to pull him right out of it,
Down in the cockpit,
Man need the woman to pull him right out of it.

Queen wants the castle,
Back from the rascal,
Queen wants the castle.

    General CommentOK, well I think it's about the woman's responsibility to keep men from disappearing up their own assholes....or something.

    General Commentit's about the feminist movement, and sympathetic to the cause. The Cockpit metaphor could only be thought by Partridge. Of course we're not talking airplanes now. Even if in the cockpit you have control of the plane. The lyrics lacks the spoken part.

    General CommentWell, simply this song is an invitation to women to go ahead and run things for awhile, you take the cockpit and fly us, it's not as easy, or desirable, as it may seem.
