Four Minutes



Lyrics - Roger Waters

Music - Roger Waters


BILLY: Four minutes and counting
BILLY: They pressed the button, Jim
JIM: They pressed the button Billy, what button?
BILLY: The big red one
JIM: You mean the button?
BILLY: Goodbye, Jim
JIM: Goodbye! Oh yes. This ain't au revoir
it's goodbye! Ha! Ha!
JIM: This is KAOS, It's a beautiful, balmy, Southern California
summer day. It's 80 degrees...I said balmy...I could say bomby...
Ha! Ha!...OK, I'm Jim and this is Radio KAOS and with only four
minutes left to us, let's use this as wisely as possible
MOLLY: Everybody got someone they call home
JIM: Out at Dodger Stadium, It's the bottom of the seventh, the
Dodgers are leading three to nothing over the Giants, and for those
of you who are looking to go surfing tomorrow, too bad.
'Phone rings'
JIM: I'm kinda lost in here to tell you the truth...
OK, good, ladies and gentleman, if the reports that we are
getting are correct, this could be it, Billy, if you're listening
to me, please call now.

After a near miss on the plane
You swear you'll never fly again
After the first kiss when you wake up
You swear you'll never break up again
And when you've run a red light
Sit shaking under the street light
You swear to yourself you'll never drink and drive again
Sometimes I feel like going home
You swear you'll never let things go by again
Sometimes I miss the rain and snow
And you'll never toe the party line again
And when the east wind blows
Sometimes I feel like going home

JIM: Billy, if you are listening, please call
CALIFORNIAN WEIRDO: Sole has no eyes
MOLLY: Goodbye little spy in the sky
they say that camera's don't lie ,
Am I happy, Am I sad, Am I good, Am I bad?
JIM: Billy , if you're listening please call
CALIFORNIAN WEIRDO: Sole has no eyes, sole has no eyes
BILLY: Ten, nine, eight, seven
MARGARET THATCHER: Our own independant nuclear deterrent
has helped to keep the peace
BILLY: Six, five, four, three
ORDINARY've got a job...
BILLY: Two, one
MARGARET THATCHER: For nearly forty years
JIM: Goodbye Billy
