The question is wouldn't Mama be proud?
There's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
And the pretty post that you're taking as a
As an NCO of the great pretender, I should sure think so

Wouldn't Mama be proud?

"Can I take your order?", asks the heavenly host
Ticket to the jet stream blowing coast to coast
The long stem glasses, a movie and a pleasant dream in mid air
You gotta tell me quickly 'cos we're almost there

Wouldn't Mama be proud?

Pointed out of the window at the sky gone black
Kid you're on the right track

If I send you postcards from the side of the road
Photographs of moving parts about to implode
If I crawl to keep it together like you say you know I can do
To transmit the moment from me to you

Wouldn't Mama be proud?
Wouldn't Mama be proud?
Wouldn't Mama be proud?
Wouldn't Mama be proud?
