Hoju bihaeng-gi

eh! the plane! the plane!
    come to rescue a princess
        hoju bihaeng-gi like silver
  birds above our skylines
over the wires        a plane!
a silver plane! coming to
            save their hoju princess
  to fly her to hawaii! her fur
    coat trailing in the dust
on the sleepy seoul tarmac
         silver plane full of furs!
come to rescue her again
              this time—from us! but
    we're just kids! running
looking up at the sky—
        to see planes! not like
    the black planes full of
   fire—hoju bihaeng-gi!
big silver bird     glides
            across the sky the sound
    of trumpets—    ta-da! it's
a plane! eh! an     australian
    aeroplane—full of hoju
birds & soft toys—the
  plane! come to rescue us?
     or a princess? who cares!
it's a plane! silver winged
           bird of prey! liberation
   all over again! goodbye
   syngman rhee! goodbye too
  to your austrian princess
a plane! a plane! a hoju
    bihaeng-gi! eh!      lightning!
