ELO - Here is the news
Tekst en muziek: Jeff Lynne
(1981)






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 2,000 passengers being held up
for up to 10 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...”
“... 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 hello 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, news, news, news
Look very carefully, it may be you, you, you, you
You, you, 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
