The question is: wouldn't mama be proud?
There's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
And the pretty post that you're taking as an nco
Of the Great Pretender
I should sure think so
Wouldn't mama be proud?
"Can I take your order?" asked the heavenly host
Ticket to the jet stream, blowing coast to coast
The long-stemmed glasses, a movie, and a pleasant dream in midair
"You gotta tell me quickly, 'cos we're almost there"
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Pointed out of the window at the sky gone black
"Kid, you're on the right track"
If I send you postcards from the side of the road
Photographs of moving parts about to implode
If I crawl to keep it together like you say you know I can do
To transmit the moment from me to you
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Wouldn't mama be proud?
