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 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
