"Old Black Dawning" as written by and Charles Thompson....
I hung around
On the planet Mabel
She tried to stand
But she was not able

She tried to find the truth
She tried to colonize space
She only had a few
But it was a good race

Old black dawning is coming on
Old black dawning is coming on
Old black dawning
Old black dawning

I'm always happy to
Go down to old Tucson
After you had your fun
It's time to move on
I've got a favorite story
About the tower of Babel
Some say it's true
And some say it's a fable

Old black dawning is coming on
Old black dawning is coming on
Old black dawning
Old black dawning
