The Lyrics

Gliding (soaring for you Americans) is a sport which asks for courage. You will never get another try if you blow the first.
As I glide above I wonder
if I get wrong wrong on landing
- so have a steady hand -

And as I soar along, I feel my
bladder fill, I think it's now
time for me to land

I'm banking to the field
Time is up and I have to yield
Altimeter's winding down
Soon I will now touch the ground
and I wonder
I wa wa wa wonder
Will, will will will will will I make it clear
And I wonder is strip that is near -
Too short a runway, a run run run run runway

I'm banking to the strip
Flaps are out and the stick I grip
Mother Earth is closing fast
just like hours these seconds last
and I wonder
I wa wa wa wonder
Will, will will will will will I make it clear
And I wonder is strip that is near -
Too short a runway, a run run run run runway...

A run run run run runway
A run run run run runway
There is nothing more annoying than gliding in five thousand feet in a good thermal on a beautiful, sunny day - and then to feel the nature calling!

I saw the title, and, for a moment, I thought Janice Dickinson was drunk again.

I had problems getting some lines to scan but funny.
