Annotationen

Diese Single – obwohl gut gealtert – war kein Erfolg für die Band und bewog sie dazu, fortan keine Singles mehr zu veröffentlichen. Vereinzelt kamen noch Singles im Ausland, z.B. in den USA, in Frankreich oder Japan, heraus. Die Entscheidung wurde erst mehr als zehn Jahre später mit Another Brick in the Wall Part II zurückgenommen.

Lyrics

[Verse One: David Gilmour] Hey Eugene, this is Henry McClean And I've finished my beautiful flying machine And I'm ringing to say That I'm leaving and maybe You'd like to fly with me And hide with me, baby [Verse Two: David Gilmour] Isn't it strange how little we change? Isn't it sad we're insane? Playing the games that we know end in tears The games we've been playing for thousands and thousands and thousands and... [Bridge One: Roger Waters] Jumps into his cosmic flyer Pulls his plastic collar higher Light the fuse and stand right back He cried, "This is my last goodbye" [Chorus: David Gilmour] Point me at the sky and let it fly (Point me at the sky and let it fly) Point me at the sky and let it fly (Point me at the sky and let it fly) Point me at the sky and let it fly [Verse Three: David Gilmour] And if you survive till two thousand and five I hope you're exceedingly thin For if you are stout you will have to breathe out While the people around you breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe in... [Bridge Two: Roger Waters] People pushing on my sides Is something that I hate And so is sitting down to eat With only little capsules on my plate [Chorus: David Gilmour] Point me at the sky and let it fly (Point me at the sky and let it fly) Point me at the sky and let it fly (Point me at the sky and let it fly) Point me at the sky and let it [Bridge Three: Roger Waters] And all we've got to say to you is goodbye It's time to go, better run and get your bags, it's goodbye Nobody cry, it's goodbye [Outro: Roger Waters](8x) Crash, crash, crash, crash, goodbye
