last night was the science-fiction
movie with you and me
you in your velvet space-helmet
me in my rainbow hat

if you'd write my lines
I would gladly play father-time on your tv-show
you got the wilderniss lipstick
and I got the penmarking

you are great, yeah you're a star
someday everyone will know
who you are
everyone will know
who I am

it's morning in heaven, again
LA is lost in the clouds
so I sings goodbye skylines
and I will sadly sing you off to our next episode
I'll make the most of my time, machine
and I'll build a theremin

you'll be great, you'll be a star
someday everyone will know
who you are
everyone will know
who I am
everyone will know
who they are

may you climb high
into the sky
may ratings rise

once I learn these lines
I will madly sing lullabies
into the unborn fans
you write the bible and I'll
read it off my eyelids

and we'll be great, yeah we'll go far
someday everyone will know
who you are
everyone will know
who I am
everyone will know
who they are
who you are
everyone will know
who I am
everyone will know
who they are

last night was the science-fiction
movie with you and me
you in your velvet space-helmet
me in my rainball hat

    General CommentThanks!

    Rainbow probably was more likely to be right, but it sounded like rainball to me.

    General CommentWell, 'and I'll build the fare I'm' in probably isn't right, but I didn't know what else he could say. Anyone?

    General Comment"and I'll play a theremin"

    General CommentYeah, I suggest fixing the "I'll build the fare I'm in" to saying "I'll build a theremin"

    If you listen, he actually uses one, it is such an interesting instrument!

    :)
