"Drop The Pilot" as written by and Joan Armatrading....
I'm right on target
My aim is straight
So you're in love
I say what of it
Things can change
There's always changes
And I wanna try
Some rearranging

Drop the pilot
Try my balloon
Drop the monkey
Smell my perfume
Drop the mahout
I'm the easy rider
Don't use your army
To fight a losing battle

Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need

You're kissing cousins
There's no smoke
No flame
If you lose that pilot
I can fly your plane
If you want solid ground
Come on and try me
Or I can take you so high
That you're never gonna wanna
Come down

Drop the pilot
Try my balloon
Drop the monkey
Smell my perfume
Drop the mahout
I'm the easy rider
Don't use your army
To fight a losing battle

Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need
I said
Animal, mineral, physical, spiritual
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need
I'm the one you need

    General CommentThis song is so positive sounding, although in some respects quite arrogant. Essentially it's saying split up with your current partner and be with me. Even though you're in love with them things can change, and i'm the one you should be with because i can offer you everything that you need (animal, mineral, physical, spiritual), so there is no point fighting it (don't use your army to fight a losing battle). There are also hints that the other person's current relationship isn't that great, with the mention that kissing their partner is like kissing your cousin because there's no passion behind it. A mahout is the person who 'drives' the elephant, like a pilot, and the singer is saying i can give you a better ride if you choose me. Not my favourite song off the Coverage album, but very fun and catchy!
