Hark! The wire service sings
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 cloud base
And the ground crew cheers as he puts down his landing gear

Hey, boy, you’re a hero. Take this scar
And back home, in Cleveland, all the papers and the local T.V. 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. ”
