when i called last night i wasn't high
no, i had not been drinking
when i saw a sight i can't deny
now made me do some thinking.

imagine my surprise:
ooh i nearly dozed off on my pillow.
had to rub my eyes:
ooh i saw the whole thing from my window

and it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know if it's true.
and it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know what to do.

when somebody sees to sky open wide
and rides the solar system,
if he saw themoonlight pass him by
what would you think about him?

imagine my surprise:
all my life i've been so ordinary.
had to rub my eyes:
ooh my mind was just a little blurry.

and it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know if it's true.
and it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know what to do.

was it something in the sky,
or something in my eyes?
now, i don't know.
something that i've seen,
or was it a dream?
man, i don't know.

when i tell the world my trouble plight
now, do you think they'll listen?
or is this the kind of tripe people like
to put on television?

imagine my surprise:
all my life i look out of my window.
had to rub my eyes:
ooh i saw the whole thing from my pillow.

oh doctor, it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know if it's true.
and it seems so, i don't know
no i don't know what to do.

    Lyric Correction

    these are correct (grabbed from web e6townhall.com/showthread.php)

    When I called last night I wasn't high No, I had not been drinking When I saw a sight I can't deny Now made me do some thinking

    Imagine my surprise Ooh, I nearly dozed off on my pillow Had to rub my eyes Ooh, I saw the whole thing from my window

    It was after midnight, I saw a sight Or should I say a vision? Something caused the white light to divide Now, as if through a prism

    Imagine my surprise Ooh, I barely woke up from my bed I had to rub my eyes Ooh, I saw the whole thing as it went by

    And it seems so, I don't know No, I don't know if it's true It seems so, I don't know No, I don't know what to do

    When somebody sees the sky open wide And rides the solar system If you saw the moonlight passing by What would you think about it?

    Imagine my surprise All my life I've been so ordinary Had to rub my eyes Ooh, my mind was just a little blurry

    And it seems so, I don't know No, I don't know if it's true And it seems so, but I don't know No, I don't know what to do

    Was it something in the sky or something in my eye, now, I don't know Something that I've seen, or was it a dream, now, I don't know

    When I tell the world my troubled plight Now, do you think they'll listen? Or is this the kind of tripe people like To put on television?

    Imagine my surprise All my life I looked out of my window Had to rub my eyes Ooh, I saw the whole thing from my pillow

    And it seems so, but I don't know Now I don't know if it's true And it seems so, but I don't know Now, I don't know what to do Oh, doctor, it seems so, but I don't know No, I don't know if it's true Oh, doctor, it seems so, but I don't know No, I don't know what to do
