  • From distant star
    To this here bar
    The me, the you
    Where are we now?
    Horray the blues
    Of everyone
    Allison

    Keeps a smile
    Around a while
    He took no fright
    And jettisoned
    We'll go tonight
    To hear him tell
    "Oh well"
    Allison
    Allison

    And when the planet hit the sun
    I saw the face of Allison
    Allison
