Catch A Falling Starfighter (Calvert Robert)

Catch a falling starfighter Put it in the pocket of your jeans You can use it as a cigarette lighter Or as an opener for a can of beans Catch a falling starfighter Shine it up and wear it on a chain You will find that it will be much brighter If you empty out its cockpit down the drain If you empty out its cockpit down the drain I focused the magnifying glass That brought the downfall of Icarus. Balloons were easy; a simple pin; Or a knife in the case of the zeppelin. That blade was the cause of many a prang In the early days of stick and string. I am the gremlin. I was there. Making mischief in the air And always will be wherever man Flies in the face of Creation's plan.
