here is the news lyrics – electric light orchestra

here is the news
coming to you every hour on the hour,
(here is the news)
the weather’s fine, but there may be a meteor shower.

here is the news,
a cure’s been found for good old rocket lag,
(here is the news)
someone left their life behind in a plastic bag.

here is the news,
here is the news,
here is the news.

“spaceworkers dispute in london today. a lightning
strike by air shuttle officers led to over two thousand
p*ssengers being held up for up to ten hours to board flights…”

“ten eurotechnicians were today sentenced by the justice computer
to be banished for life to the prison satellite penal one, one, one…”

here is the news,
another action-filled adventure,
(here is the news)
all the worst from the world convention.

here is the news (the very latest),
here is the news,
here is the news,
here is the news.

“…shares of roboko development are now climbing to the…”
“…a very great friend of mine…”
“…our regular scheduled programs…”
“…the latest report from the people down there…”
“…a tiny little detail…”
“…i’d like to say h*llo to everybody…”

here is the news,
i wanna go home; i want my baby back,
here is the news,
i wanna go back!

here is the news,
somebody has broken out of satellite two,
(here is the news)
look very carefully, it may be you, you, you, you…

“…the energy counsel today announced…”
“…the archbishop is waving to the crowds:”
“…the world broadcasting authority today announced…”
“…i think that’s going to be alright, you’ll have to wait and see…
i’ll call you back later…”

here is the news,
here is the news,
here is the news…
