Electric Light Orchestra – Here Is The News lyrics

Here is the news
Coming to you every hour on the hour
Here is the news
The weather's fine but there may be a meteor shower

Here is the news
A cure's been found for good old rocket lag
(Here is the news)
Someone left their life behind in a plastic bag

{Space workers dispute in London today
A lightning strike by air shuttle officers
Led to over 2, 000 passengers being held up
For up to 10 hours to board flights}

{Ten Euro technicians were today sentenced
By the justice computer to be banished for life
To the prison satellite penal one}

Here is the news
Another action filled adventure
(Here is the news)
All the worst from the world convention

{Shares of Roboko development are now climbing
A very great friend of mine
Our regular scheduled programs
The latest report from the people down there
A tiny little detail
I'd like to say hello to everybody}

Here is the news
I wanna go home, I want my baby back
Here is the news
I wanna go back

Here is the news
Somebody has broken out of satellite two
Here is the news
Look very carefully, it may be you, you, you

{The energy counsel today announced
The Archbishop is waving to the crowds
The world broadcasting authority today announced
I think that's going to be alright, you'll have to wait and see
I'll call you back later}

Here is the news
Here is the news
Here is the news
