A happy song filled with a deep longing to be somewhere else…

Woke up this morning with light in my eyes
And then realized it was still dark outside
It was a light coming down from the sky
I don’t know who or why…

Must be those strangers that come every night
Those saucer shaped lights put people uptight
Leave blue-green footprints that glow in the dark
I hope they get home all right

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?

Woke up this morning, I was feeling quite weird
Had flies in my beard, my toothpaste was smeared
Over my window, they’d written my name
Said, so long, we’ll see you again.

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?

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?
