From: John Servaice
Date: 19 Jul 99 - 12:54 AM

Here's a weird one, I'm trying to put a collection of songs on tape dealing with flying saucers and/or space - I've come up with CoaCoa beach blues (Eric Von Schmidt) Mr Space man by the Holy Modal rounders and I can loosley remember a song with the lyrics of "You've got to pray to the Lord when you see those Flying Saucers" I think from a fifties "Brothers" style group --any others? (any type of Music!) Thanks

Subject: Lyr Add: FLYING SAUCER (from Brave Combo)^^
From: Nathan
Date: 19 Jul 99 - 09:30 AM

Here's one by Brave Combo (http://brave.com/bo/)

Flying Saucer

I'm tired of the same old job
and the same old recreation.
My life in general bores me to the core
I need a permanent vacation.
But I'm not gonna fool myself.
I'm not gonna tell me lies.
I won't pretend anything at all
But I really need a big surprise.

Refrain:
I wanna see a flying saucer
I wanna see a flying saucer
I wanna see it land in front of my car
Fly in formation over my backyard
Or carry me off to the nearest star
I want to see a flying saucer
I want to see a flying saucer, yeah.

I don't want to read your book.
(read your book)
I don't want to hear your tale.
(hear your tale)
I don't want to see any photos you took
Or get UFO news in the mail
(U-F-O)
I want to see something not from Earth,
Something new to understand,
Something way beyond sex, death, or birth,
Or playing music in this band.

Refrain

yeah yeah yeah

(From "Polkas For a Gloomy World" 1995 Rounder CD9045 Written by Carl Finch)

From: reggie miles

Flying Saucers

Our marriage used to be,
like the sweetest harmony,
everything was peachy at the start.
Like a rocket to the moon,
it was over much too soon,
when she hit me on the head she broke my heart.

(*,sound effect of glass saucers smashing to pieces)
*SMASH!, OWW!, *SMASH!, OOOH!, *SMASH!, AHAH!, *SMASH!, OWWW!

(chorus:) Flying saucers, flying saucers,
flying from the hands of my wife,
flying saucers, cups and saucers,
are breaking up my happy wedding life.

Last night I sure was blist,
when she threw a plate and missed,
I cried this is goodbye to our romance.
But she pleaded as she said,
though the plate just missed your head,
I'm your wife and I deserve another chance.

(repeat from smashes and groans through chorus)

So to science I declare,
for those saucers in the air,
you don't have to look to Jupiter or Mars.
You can solve this mystery,
find a woman who is free,
marry her and you will soon be seeing stars.

(repeat smashes, groans and chorus)

in the uk a few years back, a group called the firm released a record called "star trekking", the carpenters "calling occupants of interplanetary craft" should qualify and so .I suppose< would the theme tune to the B.B.C.'s red dwarf another possible is "a spaceman came travelling" by chris deburgh.

Subject: Lyr Add: A SPACEMAN CAME TRAVELLING (C de Burgh)^^
From: alison
Date: 19 Jul 99 - 09:51 PM

Here is one mentioned above

A_Spaceman_Came_Travelling Chris de Burgh

A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
'Twas light years of time since his mission did start,
And over a village he halted his craft,
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star...

He followed a light and came down to a shed,
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed,
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid...

Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
I come from a planet a long way from here,
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air...

And it went La La...

Peace and goodwill to all men, and love for the child...

This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
And many were wakened on hearing that sound,
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
By the light of that ship in the sky, which shone all around...

And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly,
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry..."

And it went La La...This song will begin once again
to a baby's cry...
And it goes La La...Peace and goodwill to all men, and
love for the child...

Oh the whole world is waiting, waiting to hear the song again,
There are thousands standing on the edge of the world,
And a star is moving somewhere and the time is nearly here,
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry...

Slainte

Subject: Lyr Add: LITTLE STAR TREKS^^^
From: rich r
Date: 19 Jul 99 - 10:04 PM

With apologies to Malvina Reynolds and the filk site I found this on a few years ago.

LITTLE STAR TREKS

Little Star Treks on my TV, little Star Treks look so ticky tacky
Little Star Treks, little Star Treks, and they all look just the same
There's the deep one, and the next one, and the good old Bill Shatner one
And they all look so ticky tacky cause they all look just the same

And the captains of the Star Treks all rule with great efficiency
Balding captains, balding captains, although one wears a toupee
There's a black one and a white one and a refined old Englishman
And they all act really ticky tacky cause they all act just the same

Now the captains of the Star Treks have added another one
Lady captain, woman captain but a captain just the same
And she acts tough, and she talks rough and must not have any fun
'Cause the men act really ticky tacky and she must act just the same

And the plot lines on the Star Treks all deal with blowing up a ship
Silly plot lines, goofy plot lines, though they're plot lines just the same
And the reason is the plot lines are written by the three same guys
And they all write really ticky tacky and they all write just the same

And the bad guys on the Star Treks wear prosthetic body parts
Scary bad guys, rubber bad guys, but they're bad guys just the same
There's a Klingon, a pheringe, and sometimes a romulan,
And they all act really ticky tacky, though they don't look just the same

Little Star Treks on my TV, little Star Treks look so ticky tacky
Little Star Treks, little Star Treks, and they all look just the same
There's the deep one, and the next one, and the good old bill shatner one
And they all look so ticky tacky cause they all look just the same

And don't forget the "space" verses to "The Cat Came Back"

Am I the only one who remembers "John Cameron Cameron"? For those who don't, here is an excerpt from a biography of Dickie Goodman:

Then in June 1956, Goodman came up with an idea. "Bill Buchanan and I were writing some songs at the time," said Goodman in a print interview, "trying to break into the business. We were sitting around and suddenly we got an idea. How would it be if we had a disc jockey show being interrupted by reports of a flying saucer - THE FLYING SAUCERS ARE REAL! - and suddenly the Platters line (from "The Great Pretender") came to me - 'Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal' and we said 'Hey!' and we didn't know any better so we put the thing together."

Within a few days, Goodman and Buchanan spliced together a four-minute reworking of Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast. Goodman played "John Cameron Cameron," an unflappable reporter interviewing people, officials and even the Martians themselves. Buchanan was heard as a title-mangling disc jockey (allegedly based on Alan Freed), who interrupted a peppy dance number with news of an invasion from Mars.

Buchanan: We interrupt this record to bring you a special bulletin. The reports of a flying saucer hovering over the city have been confirmed. The flying saucers are real!
Radio: Too real, when I feel, what my heart can't conceal... (from the Platters' "The Great Pretender")
Buchanan: That was the Clatters' recording, "Too Real!"

And that set the pattern. Goodman would interview eyewitnesses about the spaceship, whose responses were the lyrics of popular songs. Goodman: This is John Cameron Cameron downtown. Pardon me madam, would you tell our audience what would you do if the saucer were to land? Witness: Duck back in the alley (from Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally") Goodman: Thank you. And now the thin gentleman there. Witness: What I'm gonna do ... is hard to tell (from Fats Domino's "Poor Me") Goodman: And the gentleman with the guitar, what would you do sir? Witness: Just take a walk down Lonely Street (from Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel") The record continued. While the flying saucer landed on Earth, Buchanan and Goodman greeted its arrival with more splices, in-jokes and primitive technical wizardry. Goodman: This is John Cameron Cameron on the spot. And now I believe we're about to hear the words of the first spaceman ever to land on earth. Martian: "A WOP BOP A LOO MOP A LOP BAM BOOM" (from Little Richard's "Tutti-Frutti")

There was more but this is a sample.

From: GUEST,Dale
Date: 02 May 03 - 02:06 AM

Let's see now. 19 Jul 99 ~~ Shoot, that isn't even four years yet and here they are! Now whether John Servaice is still around to see them, that is another matter. That was his only post, but perhaps he is still around, using another name.

As to the sound ~~ imagine the Blue Sky Boys or a lighter hearted Monroe Brothers sound, complete with guitar & mandolin backing, with a fiddle break after two verses.

WHEN YOU SEE THOSE FLYING SAUCERS
as sung by the Buchanan Brothers, 1947

You'd better pray to the Lord
When you see those flying saucers
It may be the coming of the judgement day
It's a sign, there's no doubt
Of the trouble that's about
So I say my friend, you'd better start to pray

They're a terrifying sight
As they fly on day and night
It's a warning that we'd better mend our way
You'd better pray to the Lord
When you see those flying saucers
It may be the coming of the judgement day

Many people think the saucers
Might be someone's foolish dream
Or maybe they were sent down here from Mars
If you'll just stop and think
You'd realize just what it means
They're more than atom bombs or falling stars

And though the war may be through
There's unrest and trouble brewing
And those flying saucers may be just a sign
That if peace doesn't come
It will be the end of some
So repent today, you're running out of time

When you see a saucer fly
Like a comet through the sky
You should realize the price you'll have to pay
You'd better pray to the Lord
When you see those flying saucers
It may be the coming of the judgement day

There was one that featured Walter Brennan (who played Grandpappy Amos on the 50s/60s tv show The Real McCoys. He also had countless other roles in many movies). I used to own it on a 45rpm. It was called "Space Mice" and used the technology of the day that enabled us to enjoy Alvin and the Chipmunks for the voices of the space mice who spoke and sang in the song. If I'm not mistaken the flip side was an even more bizarre song called "What Can You Dop With A Thievin' Stranger?" Space Mice would be a challenge to redo from the stage unless you had access to lots of helium.

Wow! Thanks to Guest L Fletcher for reviving this thread after years of dormancy!

As I began reading the original 1999 messages, I was wondering whether the Holy Modal Rounders' "Mr. Spaceman" was the same as the Byrds' song of the same name, but as read through the thread I learned that -- as a parody of "Mr. Bass Man" -- it was not.

"Mr. Bass Man" was a novelty rock 'n' roll song (late '50s/early 60s) poking fun at the lower-register scat singing characteristic of the "doo-wop" group vocal style. Quotes from the Rounder's lyrics make it plain that their "Mr. Spaceman" followed the "Bass Man" tune. The Byrds' "Mr. Spaceman" was a completely different and presumably original tune, a simple three-chord country-style ditty:

Hey, Mr. Spaceman
Won't you please take me along / I won't do anything wrong
Please, Mr. Spaceman
Won't you please take me along / for a ride.

Another Byrds tune that might be appropriate, although much less "folk"-style musically, is "Eight Miles High," notable for the instrumental intro where McGuinn plays a transcription of a free-jazz saxophone solo (Ornette Coleman?) on the electric twelve-string.

I'm not up on my astrophysics, so I'm not sure if an altitude of 8 miles puts you in space or just the outer stratosphere. In any case, I think the song is about psychological rather than astronomical "space."

Another space-related fave of mine, which might be a bit obscure for most of you, is "UFOs Exactly" by Ed Volker of the Radiators. I still think of the Rads as a strictly local New Orleans band, but after 25 years of touring they have built up an national and even international "cult" following, so maybe they're not totally unknown to all of you out there in the wider world above sea level.

I know the UFO tune ("UFOs Exactly / Flyin' over a hot dog stand..") from live performance, dating back *more* than 25 years to when half of the present-day band performed as the Rhapsodisers. They've continued to play it on and off over the years, and I figure it's probably on one of their earlier albums.

PS to Alan C: Yes, I remember the "John Cameron Cameron" novelty records fondly. I also remember hearing a feature about them on (US) National Public radio a year or so ago, prompted by the release of a book by the crator's son.

There's also the early 20th century novelty song "Come Take a Trip in My Air Ship" which has been discussed and posted in the threads.

Another "newer" favorite has to be Pete Seeger's singing of "Martian Love Song" which is on his 1958 Gazette recording by Folkways Records; don't know if that one has been posted but with encouragement I might do that.

The fun Houston band called Flying Fish Sailors do a song called "The Wharton UFO." It's quite funny but I can't find the lyrics. Space aliens come to Wharton, TX and of course, Texans know what to do with illegal aliens... We put them to work mowing lawns and such. In one verse, the aliens are mowing the lawn but the owner doesn't like the job they're doing and says "don't make me make you stop levitating me..." OK, maybe I'm paraphrasing.
They have this on a CD called Loch Ness Monster. Another song called Roswell is also about space aliens. Both can be found as mp3's at http://www.flyingfishsailors.com/discography/samples.html

Sounds like a fun project.

EIGHT FOOT TWO, SOLID BLUE
by Allan Sherman

Last night I met a man from Mars, and he was very sad.
He said, "Won't you help me find my girl friend, please?"
So I asked him, "What does she look like?",
And the man from Mars said, she's

Eight foot two, solid blue,
Five transistors in each shoe,
Has anybody seen my gal?
Lucite nose, rust-proof toes,
And when her antenna glows,
She's the cutest Martian gal.

You know she promised me, recently,
She wouldn't stray,
But came the dawn, she was gone
Eighteen billion miles away.

Her steering wheel has sex appeal,
Her evening gown is stainless steel,
Has anybody seen my gal?
How I miss all the bliss
Of her sweet hydraulic kiss,
Has anybody seen my gal?
Lovely shape, custom built,
Squeeze her wrong and she says "tilt",
Has anybody seen my gal?

She does the cutest tricks, with her six stereo ears.
When she walks by, spacemen cry,
'Specially when she shifts her gears.

If she's found, rush like mad,
Put her on a launching pad,
Down at Cape Canaveral,
And shoot me back my cutie,
My supersonic beauty,
Send me back my Martian gal.

We have just discovered an important note from space
The Martians plan to throw a dance for all the human race.

Papa ooh mir mir papa ooh mir mir papa ooh papapapa ooh mir mir
Ee-ee-ee-ee-ee

I got into my rocket ship to see the Martian hop
I saw the planet shing red so there I made my stop
But as I opened up the door and climbed the ladder down
I saw the Martians on the floor a-dancing to this sound
Ee-ee-ee-ee-ee the Martian hop ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee

I saw I was the first one there and so I was surprised
To see the Martians twist and stomp before my very eyes
They did the locomotion and the hully-gully too
I couldn't name a single dance the Martians couldn't do
Ee-ee-ee-ee-ee the Martian hop ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee

Now right around the stroke of twelve the dance had just begun
The earth kids parked their spaceships down on Mars to have some fun
And so I left my friends,the Martians,stomping on the ground
And even though I'm back on earth I still can hear this sound
Ee-ee-ee-ee-ee the Martian hop ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee
(fade out while repeating "papa ooh mir mir")

Recorded by the Ran-Dells in 1963 on London HL-U.9760 (in the UK)

My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I.

It's called 'Hell, I'd Go.' It features the fine vocalese of the Martianettes on this one."

This recording of it doesn't have the spoken bit, and appears to have the end of another song first.

BEAUTIFUL ZELDA (FROM GALAXY FOUR) by The Bonzo Dog Band

She's broken all the super hearts of the
Super Heroes of the galaxy
So why does she wanna mess around with me?
yeah...

Listen to my story
It's sad but it's true
Please don't laugh, it could happen to you
Beautiful Zelda from Galaxy Four (oh no)
Suddenly walked through my door

Beautiful Zelda, leave me alone
Just get on back to the Twilight Zone
Don't try your jive on a poor Earth boy
'Cause your kind of love don't bring me no joy
(oh no!)

A fourth dimensional space warp brought her to me
Oh yeah
The most beautiful girl I ever did see
Oh yeah
She gave me her hand but when I held her
Oh yeah
I was fooled by the beautiful Zelda

Beautiful Zelda, tell me the truth
I'm just a clean livin' all-Earth youth
Don't try your jive on a poor Earth boy
'Cause your kind of love don't bring me no joy

Beautiful Zelda
Beautiful Zelda

I think it may have been Perry Como, about 50 years ago, who sang:

'Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket - save it for a rainy day ... '

to which someone added:

'If you catch a sputnik, put it in a matchbox, send it to the USA.'

[Why do I find that so impossible to forget? Maybe it is the memory of my mother laughing at it.]

Mojo Nixon recorded a song called "UFOs, Big Rigs, & BBQ"; and on a related note, with Jello Biafra on "Prairie Home Invasion" did the rewrite "Convoy In The Sky".

Subject: Lyr Add: STAR TREK PARTY SONG (Mike Sutton)
From: MikeofNorthumbria
Date: 23 Sep 09 - 06:02 PM

A few years ago, our Morris team was booked to do an interval spot at a festival ceilidh. When we got there, the audience seemed ominously small, but our musician remarked : "Don't worry, the party never starts till the Klingons arrive." Of course, Morris men aren't really like Klingons – well not much! – but sure enough, once we got there, more people started crowding in, and the evening became very enjoyable.

Eventually, a song grew from that seed crystal. At first I thought it would need a tune rather like the Admiral's song from HMS Pinafore (… "And now I am the ruler of the Queen's Navee!"), but our aforementioned musician sings it to a speeded up version of an old dance tune, "The Durham Rangers". This seems to work well, but feel free to experiment.

Wassail!

The Star Trek Party Song

There's a whisper in the alley, there's a murmur down the lane,
There's a rumour circulating that the lads are out again.
So the quiet and the cautious are all leaving on vacations
While the noisy and rambunctious are preparing celebrations
All the traders put their shutters up, and hide away in fear,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here.
(Yes, the traders put their shutters up, and hide away in fear,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here!)

Mr Spock has taped his ears (in case they're torn off in the fray)
Captain Kirk has let his hair down (or he's bought a new toupée).
While Uhura's getting mellow, and Bones is hanging loose,
Mr Scott has found the bar, and started knocking back the juice,
There's a bison on the barbecue, and ninety kegs of beer,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here.
(There's a bison on the barbecue, and ninety kegs of beer,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here!)

The Romulan Shakespeare Company have done their mummers' play,
And robots have been summoned, to wash the blood away,
The Cardassian Morris Dancers are all sharpening their sticks,
While their heavy-metal jug band roars at forty thousand klicks
There are twelve Bajoran strippers swinging from the chandelier,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here!
(There are twelve Bajoran strippers swinging from the chandelier,
But the party never starts until the Klingons get here!)

Now the Enterprise is outward bound, they've beamed up all the crew,
Although most are still hung over, and the rest look rather blue.
The old Feringi barman has begun to count his cash,
But the Klingon lads are looking round for something else to smash.
And half the planet may be wrecked, but still the fun goes on,
Because the party isn't over till the Klingons have gone!
(Yes, half the planet may be wrecked, but still the fun goes on,
Because the party isn't over till the Klingons have gone!)

The saucer and monster reported to have landed at Flatwoods, West Virginia, in 1953 inspired a local contemporary song to the tune of "Sweet Betsey from Pike":

The size of the phantom was a sight to behold,
Green eyes and red face so the story was told,
It floated in air with fingers of flame,
It was gone with a hiss just as quick as it came.


Oh phantom of Flatwoods from Moon or from Mars,
Maybe from God and not from the stars,
Please tell us why you flew o'er our trees,
The end of the world or an omen or peace?

Back in the 60's there was a song about a flying saucer and its occupant - a little green man. It has a Mexican flavor in the lyrics. I have tried over 40 years to locate its title. All I remember is the opening lines which go like this:

Went to the beach one sunny day
see a flying saucer in the bay
See my girl, she say stay away
she greet the little green man
aye yah yah yah yah.

He was little with two big green feet
both of them move to the cha cha beat.
-----------------------------------------
That's all I remember.


This qualifies as a space man song. but with a title I have yet to find. If anyone knows or recognizes this, please append to this blog so I can get a copy of this song before it's too late. Thank You

As well as Astronomie Domine Pink Floyd also did Interstellar Overdrive.

Then there's Queen's "39":

In the year of '39 assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
The ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen

And as night followed day
So the storytellers day
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away?
Don't you hear me calling you?
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The Volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and grey, little darling we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone, though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes, from your eyes cry to me

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away?
Don't you hear me calling you?
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away?
Don't you hear me calling you?
All your letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand
For my life still ahead, pity me

Has conquered the wayward breezes

Climbing to tranquility/ Far above the cloud
Conceiving the heavens/ Clear of misty shroud


And "Floating"

Bouncing about on the moon
Guess you'll all be up here soon
The candy stores they'll be brand new
And you'll buy a rock
With "The Moon" right through


And "Sun Is Still Shining"

Everything's turning/ Turning around
