I'm an alien from another sphere. The thing I like about the earth is the range
Of colors. Fantastic to mundane. Brilliant to dull. As I was penetrating the
Ozone, I perchanced to notice the orange peel-like
Quality of the light playing upon the... The ocean. I gotta go right now;
Someone is videotaping me in my spaceship.

All around a water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin' for'n the rain
I walked up to a breakman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, "If you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk. "
"I haven't got a nickel;
Not a penny for to show. "
"Get off, get off, you railroad bum!"
And he slammed the boxcar door
They let me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
