I always will remember, 'twas a year ago November
I was gazing at the stars, also Jupiter and Mars,
When this big saucer landed and they carried me away:
Two small androids, seven Vulcans, and a Gray.

They were in no mood for chatter, and I saw what was the matter
When they stripped off all my clothes, and inserted this big hose…
They jabbed me and they stabbed me and then sent me on my way,
Two small androids, seven Vulcans, and a Gray.

The cops were not believing, thought I was deceiving,
Lying, hallucinating or drunk.
The hearing they conducted proved I'd been abducted,
Though Skeptical Inquirer said it's all bunk.

Now I'm treated like an oddity, a saleable commodity
On Late Night with Art Bell, and the Sightings show as well.
At each MOFON con I can tell my tale all day
     Of two small androids,
     Seven Vulcans,
     And that wise and silent Gray.
