Songtekst:

Well I used to think this talk of spaceships
was just so much hype
I really believed there was nothing out there
except the Stars and the Stripes
I mean the scientists said they found out that
there was nothing there on Mars
so as far as I was concerned it was just
the name of a candy bar

I’m one of those kind of people
who need proof before they believe
Close Encounters left me cold
and Star Trek seemed naive
When it came to UFO’s
I was of the scientific school
Little green men with pointed heads
were for little kids and fools

But I was wrong
I was wrong
I was real wrong
I was wrong
all along
I was so wrong

The people who believed that stuff
were always kind of odd
I mean you might as well go all the way
and believe in Jesus and God
I knew I had the kind of mind
that wasn’t easily satisfied
and besides I had enough problems on earth
to keep me occupied

And then one night I was standing
looking at the stars
and I heard something that sounded like
a hundred space guitars
The music was so weird it could have
been the theme from Jaws

Then I saw something flying over my head
I thought it was Santa Claus

But I was wrong
I was wrong
I was real wrong
I was wrong
all along
I was so wrong
