The Lyrics

This week the Mexican Air Force reported to the international news media that they've tracked a group of UFOs over Mexico and locked onto them with radar, proving them to be real solid objects. Here is a link to the story: ............. http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/americas/05/11/mexico.ufos.ap/index.html ......... When I read this story, I couldn't help but think about Flaco Jimenez's and Peter Rowan's wonderful 70's tune "The Free Mexican Air Force" (Part of what makes this parody so appropriate is the fact that the original song "The Free Mexican Air Force" is a humorous folk-song about marijuana smuggling, and in this real-life recent news event, the real Mexican Air Force jet that encountered the UFOs was on a routine anti-drug trafficking patrol in the skies over Mexico! ) ........... Here is a link to a webpage that has a free audio sample of "The Free Mexican Air Force": .......... http://www.arhoolie.com/titles/478.shtml ........... And here is another free sample: .............. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000001MI/104-9916198-2849526?v=glance .............. And, here's a webpage with the original lyrics of "The Free Mexican Air Force": ............. http://www.peter-rowan.com/view.php
In the Morelos mountains campesinos are planting their fields
Where the ghost of Zapata flies a ship that can still outrun the wind
There, free in the sky, and clear out of sight...
It's the Free Alien Air Force, flying tonight!

In the city of angels, a Man-In-Black's cooling his heels
Just waiting for orders from Uncle Sam's spooks in the field
But it's much farther south where those little green men take to flight
And then the, Mexican Air Force,
Scrambles up on an inter-cept course,
But the Free Alien Air Force is flying too high!

Flying so hi-i-igh...i-yi-yi-yi-yi!

Old Uncle Sam's cover-up-lies hide these alien trends
They might kill you if they think you've got alien friends
But they're fools who make rules out of fear of what flies in the night
Because the Free Alien Air Force is flying tonight!

Uncle Sam in his paranoid fear shut-off the mountains that sur-round
The Area called Fifty-One on Dreamland's dry Groom Lake ground
Now the only civilians who dare fly over that site
Come from the Free Alien Air Force
Uncle Sam's jets, scramble up, of course
But the Free Alien Air Force is flying too high!

Flying so hi-i-igh...i-yi-yi-yi-yi!

(instrumental)

Is not propaganda destroying the minds of the young?
The cover-up continued for power and greed in all forms!
May the lies of the evil soon fall to the truth and the light!
As the Free Alien Air Force flies freely tonight

Not even the President knows the full truth of what's going on
And the media's co-opted, bought-out, and they're singing their song
They think none can stop them, their arrogance too great to fight
Then their High-Tech Secret Air Force,
Scrambles up on an inter-cept course,
But the Free Alien Air Force is flying too high!

Flying so hi-i-igh...i-yi-yi-yi-yi!

Some ships come from Altair while others are coming from Rigel
The Men-In-Black who watch them all use the alias "Nigel"
It's all a chess game -- Earth's black and they're white,
And the Free Alien Air Force just captured Earth's knight!

High in the skies they're discussing their plans for their landing
To welcome Earth to the Galactic Village in good standing
And freedom for us is the prison for the rulers of might!
That's why the Free Alien Air Force is flying tonight!

The Free Alien Air Force,
With Element One-Fifteen fuel-source,
Yes, the Free Alien Air Force, is flying tonight!

Flying so hi-i-igh...i-yi-yi-yi-yi!
