  • Song Lyrics:
    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
    (I B Emerson)

    Have to correct something (in my first post here for about four years! Hi again!)

    This didn't quite reach #1 in the UK. It did get to #2, which is quite an achievement in itself, and down to the late, great John Peel playing it on his shows.

    It was kept off the top spot by Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin's cover of "It's My Party".

    It may not be comedy, but it doesn't need to be. I love it.
