You Can Always Go Around song
 
Wish I'd known about this when I recorded last week's podcast! I overheard a CFI at my club talking about it with one of his clients. Definitely take a listen to it!  Here are the lyrics:
Well there I was that one fine Sunday afternoon just me and my airplane and a little airport we'd never been to before. We were on short final and nothing was looking right. I was seeing red over red and white over white and I couldn't seem to remember how that saying went anyway, but I was staring straight down at the runway and all I could think was I was setting myself up to ungraciously dismantle this perfectly good little airplane and then off in the distance I heard a voice. And I think it was that of my flight instructor saying, "You can always go around".  

You can always go around. If it don't look right comin' down.  Don't wait until you're sideways, maybe sliding on the ground. You can always go around.   

I know that when, when I learned to fly, my instructor was yellin' in my ear.  Power in, carb heat cold, climb out pitch, flaps to go, take it 'round the patch one more time again.  I know now, he was showing me that just because the nose is pointing down, if it doesn't look right, give it one more try,  you can always go around.  

You can always go around. If it don't look right comin' down.  Don't wait until you're sideways, maybe sliding upside down. You can always go around.   

You're comin' in, you see you're high and fast,  but your mind is set on somehow gettin' down. The runway leads to grass,  that leads into trees, little beads of sweat are drippin' from your brow.  You still got time, simply change your mind, would sure be nice to fly this plane again.  With the wings still straight, this ain't no place to hesitate, pitch and power, gear and flaps, hey go around!  

You can always go around. If it don't look right comin' down.  Don't wait until you're sideways, maybe sliding on the ground. You can always go around.  

You can always go around. If it don't look right comin' down.  Don't wait until you're sideways, maybe sliding on the ground. You can always go around.  

You can always go around. If it don't look right comin' down.  Don't wait until you're sideways, maybe sliding on the ground. You can always go around.
