Bobby Bare - Finger On The Button Lyrics




I have appointed me the captain of my destiny
And proclaimed myself the pilot of my soul
But my mind remains uneasy cause the rest of me
Depends on someone I don't even know.

May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely day today
Hope nothing hangs him up or ticks him off or bums him out in any way
Lord, help him keep his cool cause he could pull the final curtain on my play
May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely day today.

I can recall when only God could start the world anew
He who left his babies wasted on the shore
But now that man could have the last word if he wanted to
God ain't such a bad dude anymore.

May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely night tonight
Hope he's got himself a honey who knows what to do and I hope she does it right
And in my heart I know you won't go bananas and again he might
May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely night tonight.

May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely night tonight
Hope he's got himself a honey who knows what to do and I hope she does it right
And in my heart I know you won't go bananas and again he might
May the man who has his finger on the button have a lovely night tonight.

Send him over anything he wants give him a sixpack of beer
Give him my old lady my girl friend...

    No, it is about the threat of nuclear war. The Cold War was warm in 1978.

    It's quite apropos in the current political climate.
