    Oh Lord won't you buy me a backplate and wings,
    My jacket don't cut it, I despise the things,
    Tech heads sneer at me, and that's why I sings,
    So Lord, won't you buy me a backplate and wings?

    Oh Lord, won't you buy me a seven foot hose,
    My air pipe's too darn short and I want one of those
    Just tangle it round me who cares how it goes,
    So Lord, won't you buy me a seven foot hose?

    Oh Lord won't you buy me some gear that's jet black
    My gear's all bright yellow and I fear shark attack,
    My mask has a clear skirt and I know that I lack,
    So Lord, go and get me some gear that is black.

    Oh Lord won't you get me a big steel twin set
    I've just got this Spare Air and my buddy's upset
    He mutters ``rock bottom and we'll both be dead''
    So Lord, wont you buy me a big steel twin set.

    Oh Lord won't you buy me a backplate and wings,
    My jacket don't cut it, I despise the things,
    Tech heads sneer at me, and that's why I sings,
    So Lord! won't you buy me a backplate and wings?

    Clever:D ... out of curiosity, what is the 10,000 word project you are putting off? Obviously, it's not as much fun as this was...

    Been there, done that. Doing it right now, as a matter of fact.

    Nice job on the lyrics! Now I have Janis Joplin in my head.
