Lyrics:

Well I’m a stranger here in this place called Earth
And I was sent down here to discover the worth
Of your little blue planet third from the sun
Come on and show me what you’ve done

We got the aero plane, we got the automobile
We got sky scraper buildings made of glass and steel
We’ve got synthetic food that nearly tastes real
And a little white pill that makes you feel
Hey, A whole lot better when you get out of bed
You take one in the morning for the lovelier head
We got everything everybody needs to survive
Surely the good life has arrived

I think your atmosphere is hurting my eyes
And your concrete mountains are blacking the skies
Now I don’t say that you’ve been telling me lies
But why do I hear those children’s cries

I’m a stranger here, I’m just looking around

I see the aero planes carrying the bombs
Why, you’ve even found people to drop them on
You know you can’t keep what you take by force
But it’s only my first impression of course.

Well I’m a stranger here on your planet Earth

We got the rivers and the mountains and the valleys and the trees
We got the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea
We got the –
Oh you crazy fools don’t you know you had it made
You were living in paradise
But take it from one who knows
Who knows the gates of Heaven can close
I only pray that you take my advice
Because Paradise won’t come twice.

Well I’m a stranger here in this place called Earth
And I was sent down here to discover the worth
Of your little blue planet third from the sun
I think I’ll go back home where I come from.


I think personally that the aliens are just waiting around to watch us crash and burn.

But then, it's only my opinion.


It's amazing to me that this song was written 37 years ago..

Have we really learned much??? or anything for that matter???

imo other being have been around since humans started, when we where starting out we where so stupid they could come and help us and we would worship them or what ever they wanted us to worship you only have to look into history to see this, humans just had no way to document it right.

I enjoyed this. Thankyou for posting. It appears we have gone the other direction from 1972.

Yes We have learned that we can't prove Aliens exist

And we have learned that Musicians Artists and Sci Fi writers are smarter than the rest of us

And I wouldn't count out Thor from SG1 so readily

Not saying this is not possibly alien related BUT............

Is it not more likely that this was just an abstract song made to represent how a theoretical 3rd person view of humans current actions may look like? Kind of a 'take a step back and look at the perspective' type thing?

Aliens communicating sub conscious messages to artists and sci-fi writers...



Oh yeah? Prove me wrong then

Thank you tribewilder and zorgon for putting the video's up. I know both these songs and love them. If anyone else knows some other UFO theme songs, they should upload... be quite interesting to know what they are!
