The Lyrics

A song that was whipped up on the paint line at a place I used to work at years ago. It makes more sense if you were there, but the pacing is right on and it made the company paper.
Line control to Major Don
Line control to Major Don
Drink your Michelob and put your helmet on

Line control to Major Don (10,9,8,7,6)
Commencing countdown, paint line on (5,4,3)
Check your color, and may God's love be with you (2,1...Line's on!)

This is line control to Major Don
You've really made your grade
and John Leo wants to know if you were scared
Now it's time to aim your paint gun, if you dare

This is Major Don to line control
I'm shooting Char Brown now
and it's flowing in a most peculiar way
and the parts look very different today

In here, I am floating in my paint suit
far within the booth
I will shoot Ash Blue when there's
nothing else to do

(bridge)

Now I'm at 100,000 parts
I'm feeling rather high
and I think my paint gun knows
which way to go

Tell my Kim I love her very much
She knows

Line control to Major Don
your paint's run out
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Don
Can you hear me, Major Don
Can you hear me, Major Don

Can you hear...
and I'm floating in my paint suit
far within the booth
I will shoot Ash Blue
when there's nothing else to do.
