>> Rocket's Tail <<


That November night. looking up into the sky,
You said "Hey, wish that was me up there-
It's the biggest rocket I could find
And it's holding the night in it`s arms
If only for a moment.
I can`t see the look in it`s eyes
But I`m sure it must be laughing".
But it seemed to me the saddest thing I`d ever seen
And I thought you were crazy wishing such a thing-

I saw only a stick on fire
Alone on it's journey
Home to the quickening ground
With no one there to catch it.

I put on my pointed hat
And my black and silver suit
And I check my gunpowder pack
And I strap Ihe stick on my back
And dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge
Nobody seems to see me
Then with the fuse in my hand
And now shooting into the night
And still as a rocket
I land in the river.

Was it me said you were crazy?
I put on my cloudest suit
Size 5 lightning boots too
'Coz I am a rocket
On fire
Look at me go with my tail on fire
With my tail on fire
On fire
Hey,look at me go,look at me...
