The Lyrics

I had a hard time with the pacing and phrasing on this one. And they really repeat the chorus a lot, which becomes apparent at the end when it pretty much falls apart.
When I get up after a full nights sleep
I fall down to the ground in a dustheap
I'm all sore and dinged and completely wornout
Here's what happens late at night when the lights go out

Crazy aliens abduct me
Protein paste is what they feed me
Punch a clock and then they shove me
And I know it ain't right
'Cause I'm workin' through the night

ETs, they're spaceships need upkeep
So they work me while I sleep
ETs, to them I'm just a Jeep
Got me working in my sleep

Some guy woke up and yelled workers unite
He was quickly shown the door during spaceflight
There is no pay, just one subsidy
I don't have to pay for colonoscopies

Lazy aliens abduct me
Like bookies they do bleed me
Flip my switch and then they shove me
And I know it ain't right
'Cause I'm workin' through the night

ETs, they're spaceships need upkeep
So they work me while I sleep
ETs, they treat me like a sheep
(No they're not cowboys, you creep)
ETs, turn off the saucer beeps
Or I'll wakeup from my sleep
ETs, I pray my soul to keep
Still they work me while I sleep

Here's why we refuse their space coffee:
Rows of porta-potties in zero gravity

Stinkin' aliens abduct me
Not a girl so they can't seed me
Always hovering above me
And I know it ain't right
'Cause I'm workin' through the night

That's it, it's getting full of [bleep]
No more words to rhyme with sleep
I watched, the O/S on YouTube
Man those guys sure look like boobs
Their hair, in the 80's hall of shame
Hope they stayed away from flames
That girl, in the video is hot
And all the other girls they've got
She wears, a sexy white nightshirt
Guess I'll dream her while I work
If anyone else is dealing with this type alien experience and would like to form a support group, or suppository group, let me know.
