Laurie Anderson – O Superman lyrics

O superman.
O judge.
O mom and dad.
Mom and dad.
O superman.
O judge.
O mom and dad.
Mom and dad.

Hi.
I'm not home right now.
But if you want to leave a message
Just start talking at the sound
Hello?
This is your mother.
Are you there?
Are you coming home?
Hello?
Is anybody home?
Well, you don't know me, but I know you.
And I've got a message to give to you.
Here come the plan
O you better get ready.
Ready to go.
You can come as you are, but pay as you go.
Pay as you go.

And I said: ok.
Who is this really?
And the voice said:
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
Here come the planes.
They're american planes.
Made in america.
Smoking or non-smoking?

And the voice said:
Neither snow nor, nor gloom of night
Shall stay these couriers from the swift completion
Of their appointed rounds.

'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice.
And when justive is gone, there's always force
D when force is gone, there's always mom.
Hi mom!

So hold me, mom, in your long arms.
So hold me, mom, in your long arms.
In your automatic arms.
Your electronic arms.
In your arms.
So hold me, mom, in your long arms.
Your chemical arms.
Your military arms.
n your electronic arms.
