I Am The Six O’clock News
Words and Music by: Larry Norman I've got a ticket for Southeast Asia I got my camera and press card badge They only pay me to stay the weekend What if I never come back? The flight was pretty rough I got a room, took a sauna The bellboy gook put my bags on the bed He left without his tip. Then I loaded up my Hasselblad full of film And I stepped outside, I stepped outside. I'm taking pictures of burning houses Colored movies of misery I see the flash of guns, how red the mud becomes I've got a close up view. I'm the six o'clock news What can I do? All those kids without shoes What can I do? Military coups What can I do? I'm just the six o'clock news. I got a suite at the Saigon Hilton Cocktail parties with Premiere Ky We talk about how the war is going And watch his color TV. I'm the six o'clock news What can I do? Drinkin' black market booze What can I do? I'm red and white and true blue What can I do? I am, I am, I am, I am, I am... The six o'clock news. Catch my plane flight back to the mainland I fall asleep to the engines' drone I see the flash of guns, how red the mud becomes I've got a close-up view I am, I am, I am, I am, I am... I'm the six o'clock news What can I do? Guerilla Rendezvous What can I do? All those kids without shoes What can I do? Napalm tattoos What can I do? What can I do? What can I do? I'm just the six o'clock news What can I do? I am, I am, I am, I am, I am The six o'clock...
