Shaking like a leaf on the desert heath
His daddy's got a bag that's hard to beat
I bought me a ticket, got a front row seat
I'm checking out the show
With a glassy eye
Looking at the sun dancing through the sky
Did he come
By U.F.O.

A lot of tricks were pulled in the book I read
Only man I know who got up from the dead
Lot of people living by the words that he said
I'm checking out the show
With a glassy eye
Looking at the sun dancing through the sky
Did he come
By U.F.O.

Think he'll ever come again a different way
Maybe he's come and gone while I was away
Too much goodness is a sin today
I'm checking out the show
With a glassy eye
Looking at the sun dancing through the sky
Did he come
By U.F.O.

There's something happening that isn't too clear
Just a little different than in previous years
I think that happiness is getting very near
I'm checking out the show
With a glassy eye
Looking at the sun dancing through the sky
Did he come
By U.F.O.

Did he come
By U.F.O.
Did he come
By U.F.O.

    My InterpretationThis song seems to be about an extraterrestrial Jesus.

    The first verse sets the tone. The narrator is shaking with excitement or fear as he looks at the sky through a telescope ("glassy eye") wondering whether Jesus came from outer space ("Did he come by U.F.O.?").

    The second verse references Biblical miracles ("A lot of tricks were pulled in the book I read"), Jesus's resurrection ("Only man I know that got up from the dead") and Christianity ("Lot of people living by the words that he said").

    The third verse speculates about the Second Coming, wondering if perhaps it has already occurred or how Jesus would fit into the modern world ("Too much goodness is a sin today").

    The last verse suggests that a change is occurring ("something happening that isn't too clear") and that a big event is approaching ("happiness is getting very near"), perhaps some kind of apocalypse or rapture.
