Parody Song Title:

"E.T. Went Home"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

E.T. came down with some aliens
For knowledge of plants he was fishin'
He got left behind accidentally
When they went back from their mission

He says "Elliott I must go back
To do so, I must phone
Let's build our own transmitter in the forest
Then I'll go home"

Elliott came up with household stuff
E.T. believed in transcendence
Let's contact my people in space, he said
E.T. phoned home, through transmission

He said Elliott, I must go home
To do so, I must call
And tell them to please come for me, my back's
Against the wall

Get your bike, I cannot linger
Make your bike fly with my finger
Can't survive here though I like it
Fly my friend, I'll lift your bike up

Elliott, I must go home
I'm running out of time
So close your eyes and fly out on your bike
Earth friend of mine
Say goodbye and hold on tight
My spacecraft's coming down
Soon I'll be home and you will be alright
E.T. went home
E.T. went home...
