When I was young I had a plan to be the best thing that I can
But I was young and I was free, some sort of alchemy
Living in the lone midwest
I scribbled on my pants and vest
but I was different from the rest,
some sort of south power
Skimming through my dad's LPs behind the Ventures I did see
something that appealed to me,
some kind of Arkestra
From the cover it was drawn and I dropped that lonely needle on and in an instant I was gone
and everything was SUN Ra
My teacher said in her own way what would you like to be someday
but I did not know what to say,
maybe a genius
I had no car for cartoons and such
or even Starsky and Hutch
so I panted on my own lunch box everything Sun Ra
Sun Ra on my books and pets,
Sun Ra on my cigarettes,
Sun Ra on my friend's cassettes,
Everything Sun Ra,
Sun Ra on my bedroom wall,
Sun Ra in the high school halls,
Sun Ra on my basketball Everything Sun Ra
So I left home on summer night
I sold my car and sold my bike
I traded it for city life
So what would you do?
Found myself a room to stay it happened in a funny way
I was looking for a lace to play and searching for adventure
And on my way I meat a charm when something set off an alarm
Tattooed on her upper arm
everything Sun Ra
Sun Ra in my scotch and gin,
Sun Ra on my mind and in
Sun Ra on my girlfriend's skin,
Everything Sun RA,
Super Blonde and Satellite, Saturn, Velvet, Abstract 'I', Take off Rocker Number Nine to
anywhere Sun Ra,
So the DJ says it once again for all the women and the men
From 6 am to 9 pm
everything Sun Ra
