the flying saucer (parts 1 & 2)

Buchanan & Goodman
The Flying Saucer (Parts 1 & 2)

We interrupt this record
To bring you a special bulletin
The reports of a flying saucer
Hovering over the city
Have been confirmed
The flying saucers are real!

(Too real when I feel
What my heart can't conceal)

That was The Clatters recording, "Too Real"

We switch you now to our
On the spot reporter downtown

(Come on, baby
Let's go downtown)

Take it away
John Cameron Cameron

This is John
Cameron Cameron downtown
Pardon me, madam
Would you tell our audience
What would you do if
The saucer were to land

(Duck back in the alley)

Thank you and now
That gentleman there

(What I'm gonna do
Is hard to tell)

And the gentleman
With the guitar
What would you do, sir

(Just take a walk
Down lonely street)

Thank you
We return you now...

This is Drak
Your outer space disc jockey
With a request for earth

(Earth angel, earth angel)

That was The Pelicans outer
Space recording, "Earth"
I've just been handed a bulletin
The flying saucer has just landed
We switch you again downtown

Here we are again
We have with us Professor
Sir Cedric Pentingmode
Of the British Institute
And the professor is approaching
The saucer to see if there's
Possibly any sign of life aboard

Well, I'm sure something
Are you there

(I hear you knocking,
But you can't come in)

That was Laughing
Lewis's record, "Knocking"

This is John Cameron
Cameron on the spot
And now I believe we're
About to hear the words of
The first spaceman ever
To land on Earth

(Womp bop a loo bop a lomp bam boom)

And now here are the ball scores
Four to three, six to two
And eight to one

The impact of seeing
The first spaceman has
This reporter reeling

(Here I go reeling
Uh-oh, uh-oh...)

That was The Clatters again
With their big one, "Uh-Oh"

This is John Cameron
Cameron again downtown
The spaceman has returned
To his ship and is taking off
We return you now to our studios

The flying saucer has gone
There is no threat of an invasion
However, the flying saucers
Are still around

(Still around)

We are not going
To interrupt this record
Yes, we are

The flying saucer
Has landed again
Washington, the Secretary
Of Defense has just said

(Ain't that a shame)

That was Skinny Dynamo's
Record, "That's A Shame"

This is John Cameron
Cameron, part two
Gathered around me are
Several of the spacemen
Tell us, have you come
To conquer the world

And now would you
Repeat that in English

(Don't want the world
To have and hold)

Hey, why don't you go back where you came from

(Don't be angry
And drive me away)

We return you now to our studios

Here is a news item
From Washington
The President has just
Issued a statement to the
Spacemen and we quote

(You can do anything
But lay off of my
Blue suede shoes)

That was Pa Gherkins record, "Shoes"
We switch you again downtown

This is John Cameron
Cameron downtown
Professor Sir Cedric
Of the British Institute
Tell us how were
The saucers able to land

Well, you see..

(The motor cooled down
The heat went down)

That was Huckle Berry's recording
"The Moter Cooled Down"

This is John Cameron
Cameron again
I believe the spaceman
Has a final parting word

(See you later, alligator)

We return you now
To our studios

The spacemen have gone again
But look to the skies
The saucers will
Always be there

(Always be there)

Goodbye, earth people

the definition of love

Love, 1895
Gustav Klimt

The Definition of Love
Andrew Marvel

My Love is of a birth as rare
As ’tis for object strange and high:
It was begotten by Despair
Upon Impossibility.

Magnanimous Despair alone
Could show me so divine a thing,
Where feeble Hope could ne’er have flown
But vainly flappt its Tinsel Wing.

And yet I quickly might arrive
Where my extended soul is fixt,
But Fate does Iron wedges drive,
And alwaies crouds it self betwixt.

For Fate with jealous Eye does see
Two perfect Loves; nor lets them close:
Their union would her ruine be,
And her Tyrannic pow’r depose.

And therefore her Decrees of Steel
Us as the distant Poles have plac’d,
(Though Loves whole World on us doth wheel)
Not by themselves to be embrac’d.

Unless the giddy Heaven fall,
And Earth some new Convulsion tear;
And, us to joyn, the World should all
Be cramp'd into a Planisphere.

As Lines so Loves oblique may well
Themselves in every Angle greet:
But ours so truely Paralel,
Though infinite can never meet.

Therefore the Love which us doth bind,
But Fate so enviously debarrs,
Is the Conjunction of the Mind,
And Opposition of the Stars.

La definición del Amor

Un nacimiento tan raro mi Amor tuvo
igual que su objeto es extraño y elevado:
engendrado fue por la Desesperación
uniéndose a la Imposibilidad.

Solamente la magnánima Desesperación
pudiera mostrarme algo tan divino,
allí donde la débil Esperanza no ha volado nunca,
sino que vanamente agitó su Ala de Oropel.

Y, sin embargo, yo podría llegar veloz
donde mi Alma extendida se fija:
pero el Destino clava cuñas de Hierro,
y siempre se interpone.

Si el Destino con Ojo celoso ve
dos Amores perfectos, no les permite estar juntos:
pues la unión de ellos sería su ruina,
y depondría su poder Tiránico.

Y, por tanto, sus Decretos de Acero
nos han situado tan distantes como los Polos
(aunque el Mundo del Amor sobre nosotros gire),
que no pueden abrazarse uno a otro.

A no ser que cayera el vertiginoso Cielo,
y una nueva Convulsión quebrase la Tierra;
y, para unirnos, el Mundo por completo
se apretara en un

Como las Líneas, los Amores oblicuos a veces
se saludan en cada Ángulo:
pero el nuestro, tan
Paralelo de cierto,
aunque infinito, no puede encontrarse.

Por tanto, el Amor que hemos atado,
y que el Destino tan envidiosamente desbarata,
es la Conjunción del Pensamiento
y Contrario a las Estrellas.
