Heard in White House far, far away
Evolution of Bedtime Prayer
“Twinkle, Twinkle ...
Looking through my telescope
Just beyond Antares
I spotted my father’s Oldsmobile
Rolling off the line
Yep! There she was, correct serial number and all
Wait a minute
My father never had an Oldsmobile
I checked the website again
It all checked out
I remember when they found out some Oldsmobiles
Were sold that had Chevy motors
I had found the other half of the story
Oldsmobiles with Chevy serial numbers
Another American myth, crushed,
Broken and stolen.
It’s like: “She wasn’t really a virgin after all!”
And she didn’t mean it when she said
“My hero will always have a leather neck.”
Not only that
But think of it.
If I have discovered these alien-auto-theft bad guys
Maybe I can get her virginity back
If I look in the right place
Avoid all the other black holes
Correct Dad’s obituary
Get drafted by the Dodgers instead
Hit my dinger
Get the rocket off in time
Catch the evil space-doers
Before planet earth runs out of oil
And Oldsmobile back seats are no longer good enough
To convince mom that Elvis
Really was a star
Who came out at night
On that hill out by the lake
Where I came to be... me.
The rest will be history.
... how I wonder where you are.”
