The Lyrics

Saucer, saucer
There's so many of you flying

Hover, hover, hover
You've come from many stars out-lying

Hello, please land - don't fly away
Please bring your love to Earth today, yah, yah, yah...

Starman, starman
We know you mean us no harm

Because
If you'd meant to hurt us
We'd long ago have bought the farm

Come on, please land - don't fly away
Please bring your lovin' here today

Cover-up
Has long shut-up
And punished we
Who believe in thee
Land oh please
So Earth can see
Oh, what's covered up
What's covered up
Yeah, what's covered up
Ah, what's covered up

(Oooo, yah-yah-yah... hey, hey!)
(Come on!) (Yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah!)
(Hey, hey, land today!) (Come on!)
(Oooo-oooo-oooo!) (Come on!)
(Yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah!)

Doctors, doctors
Every doctor thinks we're mad

Oh, but who are they to judge us
The day will come
and
They'll be glad

Oh, you know, the time to land is here
Time to let understanding replace fear

Oh-oh-oh

Cover-up
(Saucers)
Has long shut-up
(Saucers)
And punished we
(Saucers)
Who believe in thee
(Starman)
Come on, land oh please
(Starman)
So Earth can see
(Starman)
What's covered up
(Ohhh) Yeah, what's covered up
(Ahhh) Tell me what's covered up
I'll tell you wha-what's covered up

(Oooo, yah-yah-yah... hey, hey!)
(Come on!) (Yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah!)
(Hey, hey, land today!) (Come on!)
(Oooo-oooo-oooo!) (Come on!)
(Yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah!)
(Come on, E.T., come on... come on...)
