The Ballad of Gordon



There was darkness, there was light,

There was day and there was night,

There was wrong and there was right...

And then there was me.


You didn't even know me, but you treated me like dirt.

(And then there was me)

You didn't even know me, but you called me a jerk.

(And then there was me)


I'm from a planet near a star

You wouldn't know (it's very far).

The're calling me the man from Mars

And I think they're insulting me.


They tried to take my special suit.

(Insulting me)

(Insulting me)

Put your hands up or I'll shoot! I don't have hands...


Across the galaxy I flew,

Heard a peaceful message sent by you.

Now I find you're judged by color and size.

I can't believe what you call my...


I'se the guy who sails the sky, but I think I'd like to live


I'd like to share your mountains, share your trees, and share

your rivers.

I've never seen so many people of so many colors.

I'd like to think that someday maybe I could call you brothers.


(And then there was we)

I'd like to learn about your pizza and your weather,

(And then there was we)

Then we could learn about how beings live together.

(And then there was we)


So if you're thinking about being a spaceman,

It don't matter if you're black or white

Or purple or blue or green or red

Or yellow with polka dots on your head

Or made of snow or made of wheat

Or looking like something that's kind of a treat.


I like your hat... (fade)
