"Allison" as written by and Charles Thompson....
From distant star to this here bar
The me, the you, where are we now?
Hurray the blues of everyone
Allison

Keeps a smile around a while
He took no fright and jettisoned
We'll go tonight to hear him tell
"Oh well, Allison"

And when the planet hit the sun
I saw the face of Allison
Allison, Allison, Allison, Allison

    General CommentYeah, in the music video, Frank Black says, "This is a song about Mose Allison" before the song starts (the video's included in the Pixies' Complete B Sides Album).

    Mose Allison is known for writing quirky blues songs about subjects as wide-ranging as . . . well, from distant star to this here bar, I guess.
