a spaceman came to visit

A spaceman came to visit A spaceman came to visit and his ship it filled the sky People stood and pointed in awe, others started to cry The police quickly on the scene put barricades round the ship Looking very welcoming with their guns resting on their hips Soon a crowd gathered, it got bigger through the day The police told them to move on but everybody stayed The kids all got the day off because all the schools were closed the city came to a standstill because traffic jams blocked the roads The army soon came into the affray and brought their tanks and guns And sellers brought along their stalls to sell their coffee and buns The media went into a frenzy but had nothing much to say The man on the telly said a statement would be released later on today The president said lets capture it and see what makes it tick And the prime minister just ran around in circles but he always was a prick Priests from every religion preached the end is nigh That god would vent his wrath, from this invader from the sky So now would be the time, to repent and save your soul Embrace your god, surely that’s your goal Peace and goodwill to all men, so the bible says Not a lot of that happening these days Suddenly all around the world the people started to unite A refreshing change from fighting wars and always wanting to fight Regardless of religion colour, or even creed The people started talking because they had a common need from Africa to Britain America to Rome The people shouted in one voice **** OFF YOU GREEN BASTARD GO HOME
