Martian Lullaby Oh my darling Oh my darling How I miss you I never needed you so much 'Til I missed those Crimson eyelids And the scales I love to touch You're my cosmic Little sweetheart And your thought waves are the most, Sending growls of love like thunder All along the Martian coast! Oh, my true love's An ordinary thing You'd know her anywhere By her pink antenna And her polka dot skin And the thirty four dimples In her chinny chin chin And the hydrogen sulphide In her hair... We were ready to be married When an earthman led her astray, And I haven't seen my darling since that sad, galactic day. If you see her in Chicago, or on Venus or Mercury, and if you happen to recognize her, send her back to me! Recorded by Pete Seeger for Folkways, circa 1961, album title "Gazetteer" or similar, if memory serves. AJ oct00
