Lyrics:All Alone

From This Might Be A Wiki
All Alone
By: They Might Be Giants
Year: 1999

Once upon a time they sent a rocket to the moon With scientific instruments to test conditions there But just before they closed the door, one scientist expelled a germ That accidentally found its way aboard and stowed away For three years it remained undetected on the moon It was the only living creature there: "I'm all alone I'm all alone Behold the mystery that is me"

Then one day the scientists recovered all their gear Excited by the prospect of unearthly things inside They found, to their astonishment, a living thing within It seemed to bear good tidings from somewhere in outer space: "You're not alone You're not alone Behold the mystery that is me"

Soon they figured out the heinous error they had made And now the earthly germ had something else it seemed to say: "We're all alone We're all alone Behold the mystery Behold the mystery"
