One More Red Nightmare

  • Pan american nightmare
    Ten thousand feet fun-fair
    Convinced that I don't care
    It's safe as houses I swear
    I was just sitting musing
    The virtues of cruising
    When altitude dropping
    My ears started popping
    One more red nightmare

    Sweat beginning to pour down
    My neck as I turn round
    I heard fortune shouting
    Get off of this outing

    A farewell swan song
    See you know how turbulence can be
    The stewardess made me
    But the captain forbid me
    One more red nightmare

    Reality stirred me
    My angel had heard me
    The prayer had been answered
    A reprieve has been granted

    The dream was now broken
    Though rudely awoken
    Really safe and sound
    Asleep on the greyhound
