  • Tune in, wouldn't it be something
    Rumours spreading into panic
    I've seen movements in the clearing
    Someone sent you something satanic

    I have to leave you, radar's calling
    Outside somebody landed
    Crazy wavelengths leave you helpless
    Oh don't forget me I'm so stranded

    I wouldn't fool you but I've seen the saucers
    So many times I'm almost in tune
    Watching them flying in formation
    Thinking how I could be so immune

    I've seen them I've been there with them
    I can tell you all you want to know
    Something touched me and I was only sleeping
    Wouldn't you, wouldn't you like to go

    Stars climbing into their planets
    Systems won, controlled from birth
    Empty living on this highway
    Can you see me mother earth

    It's so endless whirling onwards
    Wonder what's cooking at home tonight
    Maybe if I promise not to say a word
    They can get me back before the morning light Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
