about

French cyclist and amateur pilot Stephane Rousson built a helium airship, with a twin-tilting-rotor system powered by pedals, not unlike a bicycle. He made several attempts to cross the English Channel in 2008.

lyrics

i am just a little girl but i’m gonna fix this radio
with only just a little help from my dad
my favorite thing’s to sit out on the front porch
and watch the planes flying around above my head

i’m gonna turn my dial and see
if i can hear what they’re saying in the sky
but till it’s fixed i’ll just sit out and smile to myself
because i know that one day i’ll fly

growing up in camden county, south jersey
there isn’t a lot holding you here
couldn’t hold my mom, didn’t hold my brother,
that’s why it’s just me and my dad left in the workshop here

my dad, he can fix anything, and he says that i can too
he says i’ll find a way, ‘cause there ain’t much a jersey girl can’t do
and it’s true, yeah it’s true, one day i’ll fly away
i’m gonna learn to be a pilot, i’m gonna build myself a plane

{radio}

i’m the one who fixed that radio
but even i don’t understand all that it said
all i know is that old box took something i thought was good
and turned it into something bad

i’m going inside from my porch now
i don’t even want to sit
i guess the world has got some problems
even this jersey girl can’t fix

{radio}

that’s it, yeah i found it, I found a way to get out of this place,
i’ll just build a pedal powered airship, just cut the chords and fly away
i know i don’t know much about airships, but i think i can fix that too
if some old french guy can do it, i think a jersey girl can too

i fixed it, it made good things bad,
then i listened, it made bad things good again
growing up in camden county,
you never know what’s gonna fly through the static above your head
i still sit out there on my porch
and i turn that dial
and when a plane flies above my head, i just look up for a second
and smile to myself
