lyrics

© 1998 Jeff Bohnhoff

I did the last rewrite last night.
Got to bed - 5 AM
It’ll be on its way to Paramount by 10.
I wrote of Kirk and Spock - the Enterprise.
It’s journey out in space.
Another mindless flight.

And I think it’s going to be a long long time,
Before a paycheck reaches me to find
I’ve got tons of bills to pay at home.
Oh no no no,
I’m a Pocket man!

Pocket man -
Burning out his muse here all alone.

These ain’t the kind of books win Nebulas.
In fact, they’re bland as hell.
And there’s no room for character development.
And all this science I don’t understand.
It’s just my job five days a week.
A Pocket man, a Pocket man.

And I think it’s going to be a long long time,
Before a paycheck reaches me to find
I’ve got tons of bills to pay at home.
Oh no no no,
I’m a Pocket man!

Pocket man -
Burning out his muse here all alone.

One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
