The Right Stuff

      <listen>      

  I don't feel fear or panic

  And nothing brings me down

  I'm an aerospaceage warrior

  I can fly sideways through sound

My reflexes and reactions

Are as fast as a machine


I'm the right stuff baby

The right stuff

I'm the right stuff baby

The right stuff

Just watch my trail


When the dial needle flickers

Around mach   1   or   2


            +++ And something ... ...happens .? ! %.. !! suddenly !!&?=?(!!.
          >I know >exactly<








                        > My hands move
~~>
> what to do !(?)



              >without "!"

                   >thinking (=0!)

            ... And my feet ...       ^<$/* like lightning /V%!* +++too+++
 


I'm the right stuff
V

baby

The right stuff


The right stuff
V

baby

The right stuff

(0=) I NEVER fail (=0)




My nerves are made of
>
          steel           <

My nerves are made of
>>
        steel         <<

And my eyes are eagle
>>>
      sharp       <<<

And what would freak
the ~average~ man

Does not affect my heart

Not even

















jinxy jet       
if this









Should shake itself apart


'Cause I'm the right stuff
baby
V

>>  The right stuff   <<

The right stuff
V

baby
>>  The right stuff   <<

As hard as nails

(0<) I NEVER fail (>0)

<< Just watch my trail >>
