Stan Davis: Music

09 We Did Not See a Flying Saucer

words & music by Stan Davis
WHEN WE LOOKED OUT IN THE MORNIN' SKY
WE THOUGHT WE SAW A SPACESHIP
BUT THE SUN WAS SHININ' IN OUR EYES
AND NOW WE HAVE TO FACE IT

WE DID NOT SEE (DID NOT SEE)
OH, NO SIREE (NO SIREE)
WE DID NOT SEE A FLYING SAUCER
WE WATCHED IN AWE (WATCHED IN AWE)
BUT ALL WE SAW (ALL WE SAW)
WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A BALLOON

WE WERE NAÏVE (WE’RE NAÏVE)
TO HAVE BELIEVED (WE BELIEVED)
THAT THERE ARE SUCH THINGS AS FLYING SAUCERS
THE TRUTH IS PLAIN (TRUTH IS PLAIN)
WE’VE ASCERTAINED (ASCERTAINED)
IT WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A BALLOON

WE DID NOT SEE (WE DID NOT SEE)
A FLYING SAUCER
THAT’S A CONCLUSION WE JUMPED TO ALL TOO SOON

THE TRUTH IS CLEAR (VERY CLEAR)
THAT FLYING SPHERE (FLYING SPHERE)
WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A BALLOON
IT WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A CIRCUS BALLOON

WE DID NOT SEE (WE DID NOT SEE)
A FLYING SAUCER
THAT’S A CONCLUSION WE JUMPED TO ALL TOO SOON 

THE TRUTH IS CLEAR (VERY CLEAR)
THAT FLYING SPHERE (FLYING SPHERE)
WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A BALLOON
IT WAS NOTHIN’ BUT A CIRCUS BALLOON
