The Lyrics

This is a sketch of my adventures on Earth, which occurred sometime in Earth Year 1982.
How great for me, they closed the spaceship door
Not good! Now what'd they leave me for?
Oh', I hear the earthling men
Lousy scum!
I'll hide in this here shed
I just wanted to get flowers tonight
I am trapped, and I am full of fright
Here on Earth, I am all alone
How I wish that I could find a phone
Well, I can't stay in here and hide
Some Earthling could be my tourist guide

I'm an E.T. now
I'm an E.T. now
I'm an E.T. now
I'm an E.T. now

Who can it be outside this shed door?
An Earthling boy--his Mom's a crashing bore
Now he's here, we will play all day?
What the heck--I'm stuck here anyway
On second thought, sitting here by myself
The drink called Beer is not
Real good for my health
I hate it here, 'though I have a friend
Gotta call, my spaceship friends again

Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me now?

Here comes bad men trying to take me away
Why do they bother me?
Fly with Elliott and his buddies
"This is reality"

I am E.T. now
I am E.T. now
There is my ship now
There is my ship now

(phoooooooooooone, home!)
I am E.T. now
(phoooooooooooone, home!)
So long E.T. now
(phoooooooooooooone, home!)
I am E.T. now
(phooooooooooooone, home!)
I am E.T. now

(i'll be heeeerrre....)
By the way, no sequels.
