    Hi. I'm not home right now. But if you want to leave a
    Message, just start talking at the sound of the tone
    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 planes
    So 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 rain 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 justice is gone, there's always force
    And 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 petrochemical arms. Your military arms
    In your electronic arms
