i dropped in from outer-space 'cause it seemed like such a lovely place to relax my martian feet and find something green to eat caught my first sunrise and it blew my mind the redding of blueish skies and a warm wind kissed my eyes was chatting with a big gray whale she had such a lovely large tail she told be all about the seas and the earth sounded perfect to me but then she told me 'bout the humans she said they were confusing they talk about heaven but they don't love the one they're living in oh the humans why they gotta do that why they gotta be that way it's making me crazy i said there's got to be some mistake what would ever live that way i traveled on only to find my whale she wasen't out of her mind 'cause i was rapping with a redwood tree he was as high as can be he shook all his mighty leaves and then he cried in-front of me oh the humans they're so confusing they talk about paradise then they put black smoke up in the skies oh the humans why they gotta do that why they gotta be that way it's making me crazy been about thirty years and i'm still here don't know when i'll be moving on but i know it won't be long please don't get me wrong now i love this place so much beauty to see natural variety but oh the humans they're so confusing they dream of a lasting peace so why won't they let it be oh the humans whay they gotta do that why they gotta be that way making me crazy the humans.
