Stan Davis: Music

02 A Freakin' Flying Saucer

words & music by Stan Davis
Sorry, sir, but….
I SEE A SILVER, SHINY OBJECT
SPINNING ‘ROUND IN THE SKY
AND BEFORE YOU CAN OBJECT
OR QUESTION WHETHER I'M HIGH
I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT I'M SOBER
AND IF YOU WANT SOME PROOF
TURN AROUND AND LOOK JUST OVER THERE
YOU’LL SEE IT’S THE TRUTH!

I don’t see anything….

I SAW IT THERE, I SWEAR
BUT IT HAS JUST DISAPPEARED
I MIGHT DOUBT IT, TOO, IF I WERE YOU
I KNOW IT SOUNDS WEIRD
BUT BELIEVE ME, SIR, I’M SURE
WITH EVERY FIBRE OF MY BEING
I’LL SHOUT IT OUT WITHOUT A DOUBT
I KNOW WHAT I WAS SEEING!

And what do you think you saw?

I AM CERTAIN WHAT I SAW, SIR
I SAW A FLYING SAUCER!
I COULD NOT BE ANY MORE SURE
IT WAS A FREAKIN' FLYING SAUCER!

JURGENS, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
SO CEASE AND DESIST THIS STUFF AND NONSENSE YOU'RE CONVEYING
YOU’RE EITHER OUT TO FOOL ME,
YOU'VE BEEN NIPPING AT THE SAUCE, OR
YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR MIND IF YOU BELIEVE IN FLYING SAUCE-ORS
I SAW A FLYING SAUCER (OH NO, YOU DIDN’T)
IF YOU DIDN’T, THEN THAT’S YOUR LOSS, SIR (OH NO, IT ISN’T)
THOUGH YOU MAY FEEL IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL
THERE’S NO DENYING
THAT THIS FLYING SAUCER’S FREAKIN’ REAL!

JURGENS NOW, FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE!
COME BACK DOWN TO EARTH
GIVE YOUR HEAD A SHAKE
OR YOUR DELUSIONS WILL GET WORSE
TO HEAR YOU CARRY ON LIKE THIS
WILL ONLY GET ME CROSSER
SO STOP ALL THIS AND LET’S DISMISS
YOUR TALK OF FLYING SAUCERS

I would… except it’s back!
What?! Hmmm….

I SEE AN OBJECT OVER THERE
THAT'S CIRCULAR AND SPINNING
BUT A FLYING SAUCER IN THE AIR?
NO, IT’S NOT CONVINCING
SOMETIMES WHAT WE THINK WE SEE
IS JUST IMAGINATION
NOT ACTUAL REALITY
BUT OUR INTERPRETATION

Oh, come off it, sir!

WHAT YOU SEE IS VERIFYING
THAT IS A SAUCER – AND IT’S FLYING
ADMIT YOU’RE SEEING WHAT I SAW, SIR
IT IS A FREAKIN’ FLYING SAUCER!

WE SEE A FLYING SAUCER (MAYBE IT ISN’T)
WE GUARANTEE IT’S NOT OUR THOUGHTS, SIR (IT’S INSUFFICIENT)
THOUGH YOU MAY FEEL IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL
THERE’S NO DENYING
THAT THIS FLYING SAUCER….

Well, whatever it was… it freakin’ crashed!
