The Lyrics

The thoughts of an astronaut's first trip into space....
Never volunteer
For a week up here
Wish I'd stayed on Earth
Let me tell you

All I've learned form outor space is
Where my feet were now my face is
I just want to get back to my world

Someone beam me down
Back to my home town
Should have stayed behind
'Cos I hate it

"Star Wars" never had such trouble
Get me back down on the double
I just want to get back to my world

All the food that they've supplied me
Comes in tubes that they provide me
But the food won't stay inside me

There's a gagging in my throat here
From those gooey globs that float here
I just want to get back to my world

Say that you'll never never never never go there
One time in the middle of nowhere
I just want to get back to my world

Oh Mad, Mad Arcand with your crumbling mind Your dizzying ditties are more cryptic than kind But thanks for this bottle, whete'er it might Oh, I'm tempted, so tempted, too look in and see But you've warned me against it and to your words I'll stay true As least for as long as I'm wanting to. Great parody by the way...and you non-Baldur's Gate players will have no clue what the above means.

I'm not sure, but I think this may be plagiarised from Mad Magazine.

Yes and no on the plagiarism issue. It was originally published in MAD magazine, but I am the one who wrote it FOR the magazine, so therefore it is not plagiarism.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
