Letra The Ballad of Gordon


There was darkness, there was light
There was day and there was night
There was wrong and there was right
And then there was me

You didn't even know me, but you treated me like dirt
(And then there was me)
You didn't even know me, but you called me a jerk
(And then there was me)

I'm from a planet near a star
You wouldn't know (it's very far)
The're calling me the man from Mars
And I think they're insulting me

They tried to take my special suit
(Insulting me)
(Insulting me)
Put your hands up or I'll shoot! I don't have hands

Across the galaxy I flew
Heard a peaceful message sent by you
Now I find you're judged by color and size
I can't believe what you call my

I'se the guy who sails the sky, but I think I'd like to live
Here
I'd like to share your mountains, share your trees and share
Your rivers
I've never seen so many people of so many colors
I'd like to think that someday maybe I could call you brothers

(And then there was we)
I'd like to learn about your pizza and your weather
(And then there was we)
Then we could learn about how beings live together
(And then there was we)

So if you're thinking about being a spaceman
It don't matter if you're black or white
Or purple or blue or green or red
Or yellow with polka dots on your head
Or made of snow or made of wheat
Or looking like something that's kind of a treat

I like your hat
