Watching the Skies by Vom Vorton

hello, I’m your host for this galactic broadcast
the latest episode of my travel podcast
should you plan a visit, or give a wide berth
to a small blue planet that the natives call Earth?

on descent you will notice the scenery
amazing oceans and greenery
but maybe pack your shielding machinery
the natives were a little mean to me

landing at night is probably wise
they have cameras watching the skies
proceed under cloaking, or in a disguise

find a safe place to hide your ship
and you’re ready to start a remarkable trip
don’t expect a friendly welcome; that’s my only tip

once you have landed at your destination
you can try to blend in with the population
this can be tricky, tempers are frayed
it’s generally best to stay out of their way

once you have your bearings there is much to see
this strange planet offers much artistry
amazing feats of music, and writing
these people are great… when they only stop fighting

the culture can be very mind-expanding
but in case there’s any misunderstanding
don’t venture too far from where you made your landing

cos while you start up your translator
they will shoot first and ask questions later
keep your foot on the accelerator

it’s a dangerous place with much death and destruction
and could be considered still “under construction”
in conclusion, I give it five out of ten:
glad I went once… but would not go again

The Aliens Are Coming by Rob From Amersfoort

The aliens are coming
They're gonna take your jobs
Live in your own house
With your spouse

You better watch yourself
You better watch yourself

The aliens are coming
They're gonna steal the show
They won't ask politely
And don't accept no

You better watch yourself
You better watch yourself

They're coming...
They're coming...
They're coming...
They're coming...
Soon!

The spy you from a distance
And they like what they see
Nice green meadows
And a blue sea

They come from afar
Lightyears away
They are so hungry
For some meat and Beaujolais

You better watch yourself
You better watch yourself
They're watching you
They're watching you

They're gonna eat you...
They're gonna eat you...
They're gonna eat you...
They're gonna eat you...
Alive!

Watch yourself
Watch yourself
They are coming
Watch yourself
They are coming
Watch yourself

"Our World" - Third Cat

I like your earth chickens
I love your earth cat
but I'm afraid your people
aren't exactly where it's at.

you will have to leave this place
there's no space for the human race.

(instrumental)

you will have to leave this place
there's no space for the human race.

we'll take your kangaroos
and your beautiful cows
but you gotta go
I don't care how
this is our world now.

(instrumental)

this is our world now.
yeah you gotta go I don't care how.
we'll take your kangaroos and your beautiful cows.
this is our world now.

Here to Say Hello
by Lichen Throat

I’m from outer space, but I like Earth TV;
Especially Breaking Bad, so I’m in Albuquerque.
I tried to wash my spaceship at the A1A;
It wouldn’t fit inside, so I flew away.
The morning sky’s full of hot air balloons,
And there are thunderstorms in the afternoons.
Los Pollos Hermanos doesn’t really exist;
It’s a burrito joint with curly fries that twist.
I’m a humanoid from a planetoid,
And I’m here to say hello.
I’m overjoyed on this blue spheroid,
‘Cause I love your Earthly shows.

I take my ray gun out whenever I see cops;
They’re known for shooting folks at traffic stops.
My ship was stolen at the mini mart;
Found it hours later, stripped for parts.
I bought a Winnebago to replace my ride,
Drove to To’hajiilee, where Steven Gomez died.
They busted me for driving with alcohol.
I’m in the county jail; better call Saul.
I’m a humanoid from a planetoid,
And I’m here to say hello.
I’m overjoyed on this blue spheroid,
‘Cause I love your Earthly shows.

Walter’s house has a fence all around,
Since the owner’s tired of getting pizzas down.
Hank’s house is way up in the Northeast Heights,
Where all the neighbors are rich and white.
The food here comes with chiles, red and green,
But I can’t find blue methamphetamine.
I’m getting tired of being a tourist;
Gonna pack my bags and go back to Arcturus.
I’m a humanoid from a planetoid,
I just came to say hello.
Now I’m redeployed from this blue spheroid;
It was nice to meet you, though.

Alien BBQ
Pigfarmer Jr

Well, I'm a real live alien
I come from outer space
And I'm here for the barbecue
Because I like the taste

I've been coming down for years
Though it's quite the trip
There's nothing like that spicy sauce
When it hits my lips

Barbecue
Barbecue
I love that redneck trailer park
And their barbecue

Barbecue
Barbecue
There's nothing like that Texas sauce
On their barbecue

Well, Billy Bob did not believe
The story that I told
But I helped him fix his pickup truck
That's nearly thirty years old

He invited me to eat
And boy, I'm glad I came
There's nothing like this Texas meat
Nothing quite the same

Barbecue
Barbecue
I love that redneck trailer park
And their barbecue

Barbecue
Barbecue
There's nothing like that Texas sauce
On their barbecue

Well, people think I'm crazy
Back where I come from
'Cause I speak with a southern drawl
From having so much fun

But when I take back chicken legs
Or a slice of beef
It only takes a bite or two
Until they all believe

Barbecue
Barbecue
I love that redneck trailer park
And their barbecue

Barbecue
Barbecue
There's nothing like that Texas sauce
On their barbecue

Missouri 1980 (Shadow)
Pigfarmer Jr

1980 in Missouri
A river lily stole my heart
And it nearly broke me
Every time I would depart

My life, my love
My lady is the sea
But I had to leave

I came to Earth three times to see her
Come a fourth I would never leave
It broke my heart to do it
And now my love is deceased

My life, my love
My lady is the sea
But I had to leave

I put seeds on thousands of planets
I couldn't stay on Earth instead
But it broke my hear to put it...
Put that tumor in her head

My life, my love
My lady is the sea
But I had to leave

My life, my love
My lady is the sea
Peter, you know I had to leave

Message to the Hindmost - Boffo Yux Dudes

To our great hindmost – I am your servant
O, mighty hindmost - I urgently to report to you

There is a problem - our military invasion
All our best units - all have gone, we are deserted

I don't know why they thought this is a good thing
The humans all corrupt everything we bring

We cannot infiltrate even with our whole fleet
When we dance with metal segments on our feet.

To our great hindmost - This is your servant
O, blessed hindmost- I urgently to report to you

There is a problem - our troops are missing!
The forward units - all have left, deserting us!

We cannot reach our troops – to have them recalled.
They ignore our cries - every time we call

It’s like a siren’s song that pulls us to our fate
They call it “tap dancing”; we’re trapped and it’s too late

Put on the shoes
Shrug off your alien blues
it's time to dance the night away!

Put down your guns
Let’s all have some fun
it's time to dance the night away!"

I told them not to put them on but they didn’t, they didn’t listen to me
I cannot cope, you’re our last hope, you need to do something to keep us free set us free

To our great hindmost - This is your servant
To our great hindmost - I urgently to report to you

There is a problem - our troops are missing!
The forward units - all have left, deserting us!

I hope you hear me on – this last transmission
I fear I’ve failed you on – this vital mission
The humans convinced me, your humble servant

I wear the shoes and dance until my final curtain

First Glimpse of Green - Heather Miller (Shadow)

I remember the day I decided to embark
I followed that guiding light
for so many years in the dark
I grew up on stories
of the people who live here
I had to see it for myself

I landed in a field under cover of the night
I touched down to explore and learn
not to cause a fight
A song of frogs and crickets
in sleepy buzzing harmony
was the first thing to welcome me

Oh but when the sun came out
In that new light I could see
The grasses and the trees
And the shapes of the leaves
and a thousand shades I had never seen
Yes that was my first glimpse of green

Back where I come from it's dusty and grey
jagged stones and razor rocks
and no real place to play
Fairy tales from grandma's chair
of ground softe and alive
and ever growing

Oh but when the sun came out
In that new light I could see
The grasses and the trees
And the shapes of the leaves
and a thousand shades I had never seen
Yes that was my first glimpse of green

You plant the seeds
they grow and grow
cut down the trees
you mow and mow
I will never understand
Why you work so hard to shape
what already is beautiful
as if it were a mistake

Oh but when the sun came out
In that new light I could see
The grasses and the trees
And the shapes of the leaves
and a thousand shades I had never seen
Yes that was my first glimpse of green
Yes that was my first glimpse of green

Can We Be Friends?
by ShyFox

(Thank you for selecting historical record number 5625 Gamma.
Your species has been identified as human and the recording attenuation modified for your biology.
Enjoy~ )

Hidden from your eyes
There’s so much you don’t see
I study you from afar

If I showed myself
Would you believe
That I meant you no harm

I wanna be friends
I wanna know if you are good
Such a new place with a new race
I wonder if we could

Be brand new friends
I’d really hate to go
Our separate ways I wanna stay
So Take me to your leader

We could be so great
An unbeatable team
Peculiar though you are

So much room to grow
But so much you don’t know
Yet I see you have a spark

So can we be friends?
I wanna know if you are good
Such a new place with a new race
I wonder if we could

Be brand new friends
I’d really hate to go
Our separate ways I wanna stay
So Take me to your leader

Enigma
A Puzzle
I don’t understand

Show me your ways
Show me your ways

Can we be friends?
I wanna know if you are good
Such a new place with a new race
I wonder if we could

Be brand new friends
I’d really hate to go
Our separate ways I wanna stay
So Take me to your leader

Our separate ways I wanna stay
So Take me to your leader

Our separate ways I wanna stay
So Take me to your leader

(Thank you for your interest in historical record number 5625 gamma.
Goodbye. )
