The Lyrics

Spare a thought for poor (but zany) Londoner, Michael Mork, who is continually battling cases of mistaken identity.......(to hear the OS in a new window, rightclick here )
[ cool'n'breezy jazzy Sting intro ]


I sip tea ALL around the world my dear
I like my pies made out of pork
but I cop a lot of ridicule because
I'm an Englishman who's called Mork

sure it doesn't help I grin a lot
'n drop in "narnoo" when I talk
so UNLUCKY that
I AM...
I'm an Englishman who's called Mork


"WHOA-OA! YOU'RE THAT ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT T.V. ALIEN!"
"I'm an Englishman who's called Mork"

"NO-O! YOU'RE AN ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT WEIRD ALIEN!"
"I'm an ENGLISHMAN!.....who's called Mork"


Sure I choose to wear these red jumpsuits
...and I laugh a funny way
It is hurtful all this ridicule, but hey
I'm a man, no matter what you say


"WHOA-OA, YOU'RE THAT ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT T.V. ALIEN!"
"I'm an ENGLISHMAN!"
(go get forked)

"NO-O! YOU'RE AN ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT WEIRD ALIEN!"
"I'm an Englishman who's called Mork!!"


such an impropriety
the way that you are chiding me
pointing at my gold boots (how you laugh)
go away society
I just want to live quietly
with Mindy...(yes, my wholesome "better half")


[ more cool'n'breezy jazzy Sting-rhythms ]


okay there ARE coinci-dences there
and yes I'm cute and act teen-aged
okay my braces are a little bit extreme
(in London though, I swear they're all the rage)

I make ob-servations ev'ry day
which I tweely like to share
but I did so way before that nut from Ork
and likewise - the way I fluff my hair
innit nice? - I blow-wave it with care
and no lice! - there's not a one in there


"SHUT - UP! YOU'RE THAT ALIEN!"
"No I'm NOT that alien!!
I'm an Englishman who's called Mork"


"NO WAY! YOU'RE THAT ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT CRAZY ALIEN!"
"I'm an ENGLISHMAN!...who's!...called!...Mork!!!!!!


"BULL - SH**! YOU'RE THAT ALIEN! YOU'RE THAT T.V. ALIEN!"

"I'm an ENGLISHMAN!!!!"


(you're a dork)

I've lived in London for 12 years and I've never heard of this bloke! Did you make him up? If no; very funny observation. If yes; the rubber suit's waiting for you....:-) 555
p.s. at least he's not mistaken for Michael Moore...that'd be too much

Stuart McArthur - August 03, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks alvin

thanks Kristof - are you sure you don't know him? He looks like a cross bewteen Michael Moore and Michael York and he wears red jumpsuits and coloured braces, and he shared a house with Boopsie's Big Bazookas next to a bedsit I rented for 3 days in December '79 - (and they reckon it's a small world...what do they know) - and er, ta for the rubber suit - my other one's having the stains removed

thanks AFW

thanks Pat - it is SO unmistakeably Sting, this OS, isn't it?

"thanks Pat - it is SO unmistakeably Sting, this OS, isn't it?" It seems livelier and more interesting than the ones I heard before. but, of course, still has his voice.
