My love is alien, I picked her up by chance
She speaks to me in ultra-high frequency
The radio band of gold
Gonna listen til I grow old

Oo hoo hoo what more can a poor boy do?
Oo hoo hoo what more can a poor boy do?
Oo hoo hoo hoo

The crackle of the radio
The message in the evening sky
You're looking at an interplanetary Romeo
I'll never see her face
between us there's too much space

Oo hoo hoo what more can a poor boy do?
Oo hoo hoo what more can a poor boy do?
Oo hoo hoo hoo

(What more can a poor boy do?)
Keep losing you

What more can a poor boy do?
What more can a poor boy do?
What more, What more
What more can a poor boy do?
What more, What more
What more can a poor boy do?

    General CommentVery strange lyrics, but, I think its about a long distance relationship? Or for yearning for a lover that isnt there.

    General CommentThe song is about a person who is in love via radio with a girl in another planet and is saddened because they will never meet and therefore calls himself a 'poor boy.' This also makes the piano solos seem normal as its the reply he gets for the signals he sends out

    Song MeaningI believe that this song, though describing an 'alien' relationship, is about relationships that are desired and can never be; for what ever reason - distance, other relationships, etc. I know the feeling... gonna listen till I grow old...
