Man acting like a farmer and,
We got to treat you better from now,
He's needing your milk of kindness.

Man, machine, no mystery,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.
Down in the cockpit,
Down in the cockpit,

Back from the rascal,

Filling the world full with a new soul,
Try not to make,
As man has done, or you'll fall in that hole,

Man, machine, no mystery,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.
Down in the cockpit,
Down in the cockpit,

Back from the rascal,
Man acting like a farmer and,
We got to treat you better from now,
He's needing your milk of kindness.

Man, machine, no mystery,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.
Down in the cockpit,
Down in the cockpit,

Back from the rascal,

Filling the world full with a new soul,
Try not to make,
As man has done, or you'll fall in that hole,

Man, machine, no mystery,
Girl have the brain to act like the weaker sex.
Down in the cockpit,
Down in the cockpit,

Back from the rascal,
