Roger Waters – 5.01 AM (The Pros & Cons Of Hitchhiking) Lyrics

An angel on a Harley pulls across to greet a fellow rolling stone
Puts his bike up on its stand leans back and then extends a scarred and greasy hand
He said "How ya doin’ bro? Where ya been? Where ya goin’?"
Then he takes your hand in some strange Californian handshake and breaks the bone
"Have a nice day"

A housewife from Encino whose husband’s on the golf course with his book of rules
Breaks and makes a ‘U’ and idles back to take a second look at you
You flex your rod, fish takes the hook
Sweet vodka and tobacco in her breath
Another number in your little black book

These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
Oh babe, I must be dreaming

I was standing on the leading edge the Eastern seaboard spread before my eyes
"Jump" said Yoko Ono, "I’m too scared and too good looking", I cried
"Go on," she says, "Why don’t you give it a try?
Why prolong the agony, all men must die"

Do you remember Dick Tracy?
Do you remember Shane?
"And mother wants you"
Could you see him selling tickets
Where the buzzard circles over
"Shane"
The body on the plain
Did you understand the music, Yoko or was it all in vain?
"Shane!"
The bitch said something mystical "Herro"
So I stepped back on the curb again, wooh!

These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
Oh babe, I must be dreaming again

These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
These are the pros and cons of hitchhiking
