Shakin' It in the Dark


Words by Mark L Berry and Music by Valerie Cox
Performed by Valerie Cox


The sweat is real
And so is the pressure
The visual seems real
And so does the weather
When an engine fails
We perform the procedure
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
Up on jacks
We’re shakin’ it in the dark

Step on the rudder
Check my fear
Fly runway heading
Pull up the gear
Avoid the hills
Level off when we’re clear
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
Up on jacks
We’re shakin’ it in the dark

(bridge)
The simulator
Is a pressure percolator
A scenario incubator
And a heart rate stimulator
Pairs of aviators
Try to impress our moderator
Through engine failures
And the loss of generators
Steering clear of windshear
And extinguishing fire indicators
This is what we do
When we’re shakin’ it in the dark

Time to land
Put down the gear
Fly the gauges
Until we break out in the clear
Land safely
And we’re good for a year
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
Up on jacks
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
Every year
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
Until we retire
We’re shakin’ it in the dark
