Sister Hazel Plays "Alien Autopsy"
Words: © 2001 by Tom Smith
Music: "All For You" by Sister Hazel
Sister Hazel is, sadly, a one-hit
wonder band; Alien Autopsy is a truly strange board game, kinda like
Operation but with glow-in-the-dark parts. What the two of them are doing
in this quick knock-off, written at GAFilk 2001, is probably best left undetermined.
I've gotta tell you, guy,
What a close encounter it's been.
X-Rays and an M.R.I.,
Showing things I've never seen.
I cut inside, I'm so confused,
Put all these probes and leads in you,
Just can't turn and look away...
It's hard to say what it is I see in you,
Wonder what this does, I've got no clue,
Worthless Gray's Anatomy's use-
Less for removing what's in you.
Since this was so short, I'll
throw in the toast I wrote for the GAFilk opening ceremonies (which also featured
me and Bill & Brenda Sutton as the opening visual of Kubrick's 2001:
A Space Odyssey).
May all our time so fleeting,
May all our work so hard,
Allow a bit of cheating
To pay off Master Card.
May all our love inspired,
May all our hope so dear,
Bring everything desired
By our friends far and near.
May milk of human kindness
Flow free from every cup,
And, in non-partisan blindness,
May Dubya not screw up.
