Speaks:  And here's one of the nation's top tunes, as a matter of fact, it's number one in your hit

parade, the nation's big hit Coming In On A Wing And A Prayer:

Sings:

Coming in on a wing and a prayer (coming in on a wing and a prayer)

Coming in on a wing and a prayer (coming in a plane)

Though there's one who is gone, we still carry on

We're coming in on a wing and a prayer (a wing and a prayer).

Watta a show (watta show) what a fight (watta fight)

Yup, we really hit our target for tonight (hit our target tonight)

How we sing as we lift through the air (we lift while we are singing).

Look below, there's our field over there (over there)

With a full throttle on and our struts in a storm,

We're coming in on a wing <and a prayer>.
