Woke up this morning with light in my eyes
I then realized it was still dark outside
Saucer-shaped lights comin’ down from the sky
I don’t know who or why
Hey Mr. Spaceman won’t you please take me along
I won’t do anything wrong
Hey Mr. Spaceman won’t you please take me along for a ride.
Must be those strangers that come in the night
Their saucer-shaped lights put people uptight
Leave blue-green footprints that glow in the dark
I hope they get home all right.
Woke up this morning I was feeling quite weird
There were flies in my beard and my toothpaste was smeared
Over the window they’d written my name
They said “So long we’ll see you again!”
