​New York Tower

This song is by The Rubettes and appears on the album Still Unwinding (1978).

Fly me away, on a day like today
Spirits are high and love is free

New York tower this is Gulf - Alia - Kilo
Victor - One, how do you read
New York tower am I cleared to make a flight into the sun
On the summer breeze
And though I've heard those engines roar
Over and over before

Oh the sound is sweet to me as a baby on my knee
New York tower please confirm my flight
Departure time - nine zero three
I've opened up power and it won't be
Long before I've made the line
I'm waiting to see precipitation keep it's word
Blue skies preferred
Sun beating down warming the taking me there

Fly me away, on a day like today
Spirits are high and love is free
Take me home I've been away too long
Silver bird, please carry me

New York tower I'm holding here
Don't make me wait too long
Depending on you, could you talk a bit loud
I'm reading you for your transmission ain't too strong
You gotta come through
'Cause when I'm rolling down the track
There ain't no turning back
Climbing away feeling like a bird
Who's answering the word

Fly me away, on a day like today
Spirits are high and love is free
Take me home I've been away too long
Silver bird, please carry me

Fly me away, on a day like today
Spirits are high and love is free
Take me home I've been away too long
Silver bird, please carry me.
