The Lyrics

If I were an alien
From another planet
Would I fit in better here?
Would I still know Janet?

If a singer were my trade
And I got real rich
Why should kids be in my bed?
Maybe I'm just real sick

Trade my wealth for poverty
prison cell tomorrow?
I gave the world my tastelessness
And I will reap the sorrow

If I thought I was a king
Guess I'd wear an arm band
And I'd give up everything
Just to hold a boy's hand

If I were a thriller
In the moonlight shining
Would you see me as a wolf
In the forest, pining?

If I were an alien
From another planet
Would I fit in better here
Would I still know Janet?

Would I fit in better here
Would I still know Janet?

The saddest thing in the issue is that the Alien trashes the name of the world's most famous beer guru (http://www.beerhunter.com).

Hey...maybe under all that plastic surgery and make-up...there's a LIZARD.

Royce: I thought this was actually going to be a science-fiction song. You fooled me. (But then, so did Michael Jackson.) This may be the best Gloved One parody yet. Johnny B: As Ben would say, "Rats, you stole my joke." Susanna: When did he ever trash George Wendt? (Norm from "Cheers") Johnny D: No, Jim Morrison was the Lizard King. But Jackson may be slimy.

Now there's an idea, put MJ into the next planetary probe and send him to another planet. 5s.

Guy: I can't think of a better way to get a civilization from another planet ticked off at us. It must be why the Vulcans stood in the way of the Warp 5 Project. (I know, I know, "Get a life.")
