Holding Out For An Escort
INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM COMMAND




(Verse 1)
Where have all the wingmen gone and where are all the zods?
Where's the streetwise flight-squadron to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight in a Mk1 Hercules?
Late at night I toss and I turn, and I dream of what we need!


(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life,

Larger than life.


(Verse 2)
Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond subspace, there's something reaching back for me
Escorting the Actium and reinforcing the 3rd fleet
It's gonna take an Alpha-1 to sweep me off my feet!!


(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life,

Ah!
Ah!

We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night...


(Bridge)
Up in the darkest reaches of the nebula
Out where the lightning causes EMPs
I could swear there is someone somewhere avoiding beams



Through the wind and the chill and the Cain
And Kayser and Banshee
I can feel their approach and- OH GOD THEIR FOLLOWING ME!

Ah!
AHHHHHHHH!   
(Explosion)

(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life, life, life, life

We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night!
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight!
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life!


We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night. . .


Oohooohoooo. . .

Ooooooowoooowowoooowowowoooo. . .





This took more effort to make then I'd like to admit. .

instrumental version of actual song:

Re: Holding Out For An Escort
That's really good.   I was reading it in a hip hop tune for the first two lines til i spotted "holding out" then I twigged what inspired you and applied the appropriate tune to imagery of Johnny 5 with a rapidly draining battery.

Re: Holding Out For An Escort

Re: Holding Out For An Escort
That was fun - I picked up on the song reference pretty quickly.

...That's mainly because of this amazing squadron motivational video from back in the day:


 :D
"trolls are clearly social rejects and therefore should be isolated from society, or perhaps impaled."

-Nuke


"The Windows Operating System: It can only get worse from here!"

-Me



"Look on the bright side, how many release dates have been given for Doomsday, and it still isn't out yet.

It's the Duke Nukem Forever of prophecies..."


"Jesus saves.

Everyone else takes normal damage.
"

-Flipside

"pirating software is a lesser evil than stealing but its still evil. but since i pride myself for being evil, almost anything is fair game."


"i never understood why women get the creeps so ****ing easily. i mean most serial killers act perfectly normal, until they kill you."


-Nuke
