"The Way We Whir"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Distant aliens, we are
And our space ship frightens earthlings,
From the way we whir..

We won't harm you,
Trying to communicate
Guess you don't know it's our language,
In the way we whir..

From the moon,
We have traveled here in June
To pledge peace..
Earth wars must cease, and then
We shall welcome you
To our land far and new
Can't we..just be... friendly?

All world leaders we'll invite..
For a universal summit
Let the world and space unite..
Please, no more killing,
No more aggression,
We're telling you our mission,
In the way we whir..

In the way we whir..

Great original story but if they had any sense they probably wouldn't want to have anything to do with us

Now, if only you could get the aliens to carry off BARBRA (not "Barbara"), the world would be a better place. *Highly* imaginative title sub... yer on a roll. 555

Fantastic title sub - definitely one of those "why didn't I think of that?" ones :-) Super parody, too.
