"Wish You Were Here" as written by Robert A. Ezrin, Alice Cooper and Dick Wagner....
I bought you postcards, thought it'd be funny
I would have sent a souvenir but they took all my money
It's pretty warm down here but it ain't sunny
And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here

I tried to phone you, I tried to call you
Long distance operators that only stall you
Besides the damn rates are so high
They just appall you
And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here

It started out a nice vacation
Left the station right on time
Now it's turned to pure frustration
I'm just a prisoner in time

Can't get a ticket to get me home, dear
They just don't have too many flights from twilight zone, dear
So don't forget to feed my cats
Spot and Jerome, dear
And I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here

Seen all the sights here, I'm getting lonely
I'd show you all the film I took if they would only
Let me go home dear, sincerely
I'm having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here
Having a hell of a time, my dear
Wish you were here

    General CommentWhere's the line about "don't forget to feed my cats?" That's the funniest part.
