Album: single release (1956)
Charted: 3
  • 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

    (Too real when I feel
    What my heart can't conceal)

    That was The Clatters
    Recording, Too Real
    We switch you now to our
    On the spot reporter downtown

    (Come on, baby
    Let's go downtown)

    Take it away
    John Cameron Cameron

    This is John
    Cameron Cameron downtown
    Pardon me, madam
    Would you tell our audience
    What would you do if
    The saucer were to land

    (Duck back in the alley)

    Thank you and now
    The thin gentleman there

    (What I'm gonna do
    Is hard to tell)

    And the gentleman
    With the guitar
    What would you do, sir

    (Just take a walk
    Down lonely street)

    Thank you
    We return you now...

    This is Drak
    Your outer space disc jockey
    With a request for earth

    (Earth angel, earth angel)

    That was The Pelicans outer
    Space recording, Earth
    I've just been handed a bulletin
    The flying saucer has just landed
    We switch you again downtown

    Here we are again
    We have with us Professor
    Sir Cedric Pentingmode
    Of the British Institute
    And the professor is approaching
    The saucer to see if there's
    Possibly any sign of life aboard

    Well, I'm sure something
    Are you there

    (I hear you knocking
    But you can't come in)

    That was Laughing
    Lewis' record, Knocking

    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

    (Womp bop a loo bop
    A lomp bam boom)

    And now here are the ball scores
    Four to three, six to two
    And eight to one

    The impact of seeing
    The first spaceman has
    This reporter reeling

    (Here I go reeling
    Uh-oh, uh-oh...)

    That was The Clatters again
    With their big one, Uh-Oh

    This is John Cameron
    Cameron again downtown
    The spaceman has returned
    To his ship and is taking off
    We return you now to our studios

    The flying saucer has gone
    There is no threat of an invasion
    However, the flying saucers
    Are still around

    (Still around)

    We are not going
    To interrupt this record
    Yes, we are

    The flying saucer
    Has landed again
    Washington, The Secretary
    Of Defense has just said

    (Ain't that a shame)

    That was Skinny Dynamo's
    Record, That's A Shame

    This is John Cameron
    Cameron, part two
    Gathered around me are
    Several of the spacemen
    Tell us, have you come
    To conquer the world

    And now would you
    Repeat that in English

    (Don't want the world
    To have and hold)

    Hey, why don't you go back
    Where you came from

    (Don't be angry
    And drive me away)

    We return you now
    To our studios

    Here is a news item
    From Washington
    The President has just
    Issued a statement to the
    Spacemen and we quote

    (You can do anything
    But lay off of my
    Blue suede shoes)

    That was Pa Gherkins record, Shoes
    We switch you again downtown

    This is John Cameron
    Cameron downtown
    Professor Sir Cedric of
    The British Institute
    Tell us how were
    The saucers able to land

    Well, you see..

    (The motor cooled down
    The heat went down)

    That was Huckle Berry's recording
    The Moter Cooled Down

    This is John Cameron
    Cameron again
    I believe the spaceman has
    A final parting word

    (See you later, alligator)

    We return you now
    To our studios

    The spacemen have gone again
    But look to the skies
    The saucers will
    Always be there

    (Always be there)

    Goodbye, earth people Writer/s: GOODMAN BUCHANAN
