Shag Harbour 03:35
I know a place where the ocean meets the land Where a cosmic funk party is bound to get out of hand Where the positive funk vibrations always feel alright Why don't you come on down to Shag Harbour with me tonight? Let's go down to Shag Harbour baby I wanna get down like the UFO Let's go down to Shag Harbour baby Get on the water like the yellow foam One day a couple of extraterrestrials wanted to have a time They set a course for a place that they knew was gonna blow their minds They had an underwater aquaboogie party like you've never seen They got their Shag Harbour on if you know just what I mean
If U wanna party Space funk party If U wanna party We gon beam one down yeah Beaming down to your show tonight, everybody's looking fine UFO's gonna do it right, bringing positive funk vibrations to your mind And people used to give us flak saying we're a bunch of nerds But U know that we don't give a frak and we still represent for all the geeks across the world And I used to work a 9-to-5 for all the bills I had to pay Now I'm rolling a 20-side for the orcs I have to slay And my band is playing worldwide bringing y'all the cosmic groove Cuz I'm an epic level 20 funk scientist and U know me and my party gonna make U move Dig this scenario: after the show U get your crew We gonna play some Mario, Super NES, like it's 1992 Hit the box with the ?, get the leaf and get so high Because there ain't no party like a UFO party, playing beats, playing games, keep it going every night Then we're in the bedroom, I'm showing U my figurines U said U made a costume, and do I want to see? Then U look just like Seven of Nine, I'm dressed like Dr Who We get inside my TARDIS, do the kind of crossover that's just for 2 UFO is gonna move your body and your soul Gonna bring the Cosmic Sound into your life A funky revolution's gonna spread across the globe Cuz U know that we always do it right
Orbits 04:33
Woke up this morning, the music in my head I started thinking about the things unsaid That went between us, I wondered if you read my expression I didn't know you, I didn't know your name But I could feel it, feel that you felt the same When we were dancing, baby I knew we made a connection Because all that we want is something to take us away From the circles that keep us spinning day after day Cuz we go round and round and round in our orbits Just like the stars in the sky Don't you know that we go round and round and round in our orbits Without ever knowing why All through the week, babe, I couldn't concentrate I couldn't fake it, I knew that something changed Like I was sleeping but now I'm wide awake and alive So I'll be waiting, waiting for Friday night For a close encounter under the neon lights Just like a shooting star, baby, to wish that we might feel so high every night Because all that we want is something to take us beyond Beyond the circles our lives are caught in until they are gone What is this thing that makes our bodies move? That keeps us dancing, keeps us in the groove? Just like the way I feel when I'm with you, it's alright Is it something in our chemistry? Maybe some kind of biology? Cuz all I know is that I want to be by your side, every night
Zero Gravity 04:47
Late night shift sweeping floors at the observatory She was in the laboratory working late She was a woman of science mapping the position of the stars in the sky But tonight they were all in their right place She said "This world is weighing on me, but pretty soon I'll be flying free Gonna work on an orbital telescope satellite" And it's up outside the atmosphere but on a clear night you can see And she led me outside and took me by the hand as the stars were shining bright In zero gravity, we could live in a fantasy And when you're holding me, I could plot a trajectory In zero gravity, we'd be a singularity And when we're floating free, you could give all your love to me Well I ain't no mathematician babe and I don't know much of nuclear physics But I know when the chemistry feels right I said "I heard there was a force that can make two bodies be attracted to each other And I think I can feel that force tonight" I said "Take me with you when you go, I want to fly off into the sky We can leave behind all our worries and our blues Cuz there ain't no time to take it slow and we don't need to justify Because I know all about the science of the heart and I know that mine is in free fall over you"
S/he: Wake up little man, look around if U can U're about 2 go on an adventure He: What's happened to me? Is this some kind of dream? Or an alternate dimension? S/he: U're aboard my ship, going to go on a trip Of discovery and pleasure He: This is going too far, I don't know what you are An alien or whatever S/he: U know I'm liking U, I like the things U do He: Well that is very nice for sure, But I'm afraid of you S/he: And if U take a chance today I think U'll be amazed He: I feel like I should run away They: But at the same time, fascinated These close encounters of the 3rd kind R gonna blow my mind S/he: So step in my groove cuz I like how U move And I know that U wanna party He: Well ma'am, I mean sir, I'm flattered for sure But I really should be departing S/he: Have a drink on me. Do U like what U see? Do U want 2 hold my raygun? He: You know I'm afraid of the things that you say But I can't look away S/he: I know what U're curious about I'll show U what I got He: You know I'd really rather not, But thank you for the thought S/he: Sit back and smell my pheromones Cuz I got time U know He: Don't know if I'm prepared to go S/he: Yes U can go They: Where no man has gone before These close encounters of the 3rd kind R gonna blow my mind S/he: Hang on 2 Ur heart cuz I'm skilled in the art Of cross-species seduction He: Let's take it slow, take our time you know It's my first alien abduction S/he: We can take our time, just open Ur mind And tell me which way U want it He: Let's get it on then, one small step for man It's time to make first contact They: These close encounters of the 3rd kind R gonna blow my mind These close encounters, these close encounters Thought we were alone but some1 found us These close encounters, these close encounters Alien love is all around us
I was walking through a cornfield in the middle of the night When I looked up into the sky and saw a blinding light It was a UFO and it was coming in to land The door slid open and I saw a Mysterious Man He danced down the ramp and stood before me Took off his shades and looked me in the eye He said "Ur people got 2 come 2gether U got 2 groove or else U're gonna die" Extraterrestrial, show us how U move Come down 2 our world so we can emulate Ur groove Extraterrestrial, give us 1 more chance Funkify this broken world, I know we can remember how 2 dance His band beamed in and started laying down some funky thing On laser powered bass guitar and quantum theremin He started talking to me and I heard it in my head I didn't know his language but I knew just what he said "Ur species is heading 4 destruction Cuz Ur out of tune with the Cosmic Sound So call all Ur friends and boogie with me A funky revolution will go down"
A spark of light ignites the dark, a creature moves across the land Energy crackles between synapses, we want to understand Bodies moving, bodies grooving Their lonely orbits in the dark Impulse arising, you're magnetizing my heart This is the science of love Gotta get my formula right This is the science of love Prove my hypothesis tonight This is the science of love Gotta verify that it's true This is the science of love Cuz we got some chemistry to do Well I think and therefore I am, and therefore I've got to find The underlying principle for why you're always on my mind Because I got a theory, you could be near me I want to put it to the test Cause a reaction, our interaction is best Well if E+MC^2, you will be my guiding light And I will work in the laboratory late into the night Righting equations and calculations Experimenting, taking notes Till I discover you are my lover, I'll know
Well I know U say that U're leaving I know U have your reasons Word on the street is U've been hanging round town With some kind of machine now It looks just like a man, it's like the perfect boyfrand But it can't love you like I do, it's not part of its program U know just what I mean girl so tell me U want a man or machine? Well a man, sometimes he makes mistakes But you know that he can feel it A machine can simulate affection But U know it isn't real, yeah A man, he can promise to do better But there are some things that he can't do A machine, it won't forget your birthday But it doesn't understand U U know just want I mean girl so tell me U want a man or machine? If U cry, it can hold U Put your head on its shoulder But it can never know why But a man, he can love U Put nothing above U So girl U got to decide A man can fall down on his knees And beg U not to leave him A machine, if U don't like its program U can just delete it So girl, won't U listen to this man When he tells U that he needs U Don't tell him that he missed his chance And that he's obsolete too U know just what I mean girl so tell me U want a man or machine
U're looking through your telescope in2 the sky Questions run through Ur head, U start to wonder why Why is there something instead of nothing at all? What is it that makes us bump and grind across the floor? U realize that it's the music of the spheres That's been a-grooving for so many billion years U feel the beat and realize it's all around Filling the cosmos with a funky sound U know that cosmic vibe It's messing with Ur mind It makes U want 2 dance, want 2 leave the world behind U got 2 get down and move Ur rump Because even outer space can't silence the funk It's the beat of the pulsars in the night And it's the heat of all the stars that burn so bright And it's the energy that makes everything move And all the beings everywhere that live and groove U hear it call Ur name just like it has a voice U listen 2 it cause U know U got no choice It makes U want 2 dance, makes U want 2 sing and shout It makes U realize just what it's all about U know that cosmic thing It's messing with Ur brain And now U know that things will never be the same
