The Lyrics

Having a wonderful time. Wish you were here.

Greetings my child, welcome to the machine
Don’t fight lad, just show me you’re clean
You’re wanting to fly kid? Better comply
Hand over your toys, we’re scouting the boys
A bad attitude is selfish and rude
Just surrendered your rights, if you want to get on this flight
Son, welcome to the machine

Welcome sister, submit to the machine
It’s all a scream
Just bow before the team
Our touch won’t leave a scar
If you play you’ll go far
So do you want to join the war?
I’d love to send you to Darfur
Sis, welcome to the machine.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." - Edmund Burke

Nice to see you writing again, Forsby! Wow, long time no hear! How have you been? I found this parody sensational. I've also been writing parodies as well. One of them I written is "Such Luck-Superstitions Imperiled" from September. Well, I may not be a fan of Pink Floyd, but I have a friend who is. That's one of his fave PF songs. He got most of their albums. Great job and 5's.

Thanks for remembering, Christine Marie M! You are too kind. Like most people I've had some ups and downs in the last year or so but we all must keep getting up and moving forward, right? So happy to hear you're using your gift for words and unique outlook on life to start writing song parodies and I'm looking foeward to checking them out. Have a great Thanksgiving!
