Grammatrain - Six O' Clock News lyrics

I got a ticket for southeast Asia
I packed my camera and press card badge
They only paid me to stay the weekend
What if I never come back?

The flight was pretty rough
I got a room, took a sauna
The bell boy 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'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?
Military coups
What can I do?
All those kids without shoes
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 goin'
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 the six o' clock news

Catch my plane flight back to the mainland
Fall asleep to the engine's 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 the six o' clock news
What can I do?
Guerilla rendezvous
What can I do?
All those kids without shoes
What can I do?
I'm just the six o' clock news
What can I do?
Napalm tattoos
What can I do?
I am I am I am I am I am the six o' clock news
