Way Up In The Sky

well, it’s hard times on planet earth
hard times tonight
the money’s getting’ funny
and there ain’t no end in sight
everybody’s lookin’
for a place to run away to
a college or a convent
anything will do
but just when you start thinkin’
that there isn’t any hope
along comes a UFO
to throw you all a rope

and take you way up the sky
high up in the sky
they’ll carry you away they say
way up in the sky

astronauts see ‘em
when they’re way up in the stratosphere
Navy personnel
when they’ve had a few beers
house wives see ‘em
when they’re strung out on the clothes line
Timothy Leary saw ‘em
almost all the time
and they say “come along
fly away with me
it’s better than drugs and it beats TV”

way up the sky
high up in the sky
they’ll carry you away they say
way up in the sky

some say they wave
as they fly around the steeple
some have even met ‘em
say they’re real nice people
some know ‘em personal
and wouldn’t hesitate
to invest in interplanetary
real estate
from the Milky Way
to the mighty moons of Mars
they say there’s gold
in them thar stars

way up the sky
high up in the sky
they’ll carry you away they say
way up in the sky

Jesus walks on water
and he turns it into wine
they say he’s comin’ back
but he takes his time
we been waitin’ two thousand years
and he ain’t shown his face
now finally someone’s come along
to maybe take his place
and save us all before we kill
if Jesus don’t do it
then the saucer people will

and take you way up the sky
high up in the sky
they’ll carry you away they say
way up in the sky

you can Scientologize
if you can pay the rice
and soul travel unravels
all the way to paradise
Big Foot is helpful
but he’s kinda hard to talk to
everybody’s busy
even the guru
so join the new religion
you won’t even have to pray
just wait for an object
to carry you away

and take you way up the sky
high up in the sky
they’ll carry you away they say
way up in the sky
