The Lyrics

Need I remind the uninitiated: Flying a plane is dangerous if someone slips up.
Last night, we were flying
We were up in our F-14
When it came time for the landing
I saw you turn green

With the crosswinds a-blowin'
The whole task was up to me
The turbulence had you reelin'
Missed the ship entirely

Then we dove straight for the sea
We're unlucky (lucky)
This only happens to me
We both ditched the F-14
The crosswinds blew us off by sixteen degrees

Winds blew us off by sixteen degrees

And then we both saw the
Copter come to our rescue
The divers fished us both out
And so we start anew

Now I'm just sorta waiting
They've ordered an F-18
Don't know when I'll be flying
Waiting's not for me

Captain doesn't leave me be
Now he's nervous (nervous)
Nervous about you and me
Thinks that we're a dangerous team
Since we were thrown off-course by sixteen degrees

Thrown by sixteen degrees

Thrown by...
Thrown off...
Thrown by...
Thrown by sixteen degrees

They said that this thing would happen
They said "don't pick the trainee"
But you're my RIO, baby
So just listen to me

It can still be you and me
it was one time (one time)
Just a fluke, you can agree
They'll forget about that scene
There in the storm, knocked off by sixteen degrees
