Final Approach

Chas Cochran - © 2011 BMI

There were two days left in August,
The month was fading fast...
Got nothin' against September...
But I'd like the summer to last

Sittin' in the back yard...
Watching the planes from below...
Sipping on a mixture...
Of lemoncello and Cointreau

(Chorus)

The pilot looks to the controller...
Like a player to the coach...
Yet patiently awaiting...
For his time to come...circles 'round...
Waiting to receive instructions for his final approach...

There's a worldwide crew of flyers...
Though unseen to the eye...
Faithful to the flight plan...
As they move around the sky...

And just like every game that has...
A beginning and an end...
They know there'll be a final play...
And assurance that they'll win.

(Chorus)

They look to the controller...
Like players to the coach...
Yet patiently awaiting...
For the time to come...for circling 'round...
Waiting to receive instructions for the final approach...
