The Lyrics

The old home sky comes more closer when I land my flying saucer
and there to meet me are all my townfolks -
Every Tom and Dick and Sal and Janet
as I'll be back on my home planet
it's good to see the green, green folks at home
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good be back with green, green, folks of home.

The old town is still standing, while I'll be my craft landing
and my saucer I'll be landing neat and softly
All my kinfolks will be wawing by
as I'll be back at crimson sky
it's good to see the green, green folks at home
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good be back with green, green, folks of home.

Then I awake and look around me, at Earthly scenes that surround me
and I realize, yes, I was only dreaming.
I am stranded here on Planet Earth
my saucer's sunk at some Scottish firth -
far away from green, green folks at home
Yes, I'm scared as Earthlings hunt and chase me
they think I'm but illegal alien
I miss my own dear green, green folks at home

E.T. can't phone home. Have you seen the cell phone charges for interplanetary calls? If a real extra terrestrial showed up, half the government would be trying to kill it, and the other half would be trying to register it to vote.

Funny! Reminds me of the flying saucer - little green men jokes of my youth before Star Trek. Could that lost alien be Mr. Spock?
