lyrics

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.
