    Did a vehicle
    Come from somewhere out there
    Just to land in the andes?
    Was it round
    And did it have
    A motor
    Or was it
    Something
    Different

    Did a vehicle
    Did a vehicle
    Did a vehicle
    Fly along the mountains
    And find a place to park itself

    Or did someone
    Build a place
    To leave a space
    For such a vehicle to land

    Did a vehicle
    Come from somewhere out there
    Did a vehicle
    Come from somewhere out there
    Did the indians, first on the bill
    Carve up the hill

    Did a booger-bear
    Come from somewhere out there
    Just to land in the andes?
    Was she round
    And did she have a motor
    Or was she something different

    Guacamole queen
    Guacamole queen
    Guacamole queen
    Guacamole queen
    At the armadillo in austin texas, her aura,
    Or did someone build a place
    Or leave a space for chester's thing to land
    (chester's thing... on ruth)
    Did a booger-beer
    Come from somewhere out there
    Did a booger-bear
    Come from somewhere out there
    Did the indians, first on the bill
    Carve up her hill
    On ruth
    On ruth
    That's ruth
