AbAb chord                         Bb7Bb7 chord
Woke up this morning with light in my eyes
    Eb7Eb7 chord                   AbAb chord
And then realized it was still dark outside
                      Bb7Bb7 chord         
It was a light coming down from the sky
             Eb7Eb7 chord     AbAb chord
I don't know who or why


AbAb chord                            Bb7Bb7 chord
Must be those strangers that come every night
      Eb7Eb7 chord                       AbAb chord
Those saucer shaped lights put people uptight
                                 Bb7Bb7 chord
Leave blue-green footprints that glow in the dark
  Eb7Eb7 chord                     AbAb chord
I hope they get home all right


EbEb chord        DbDb chord
Hey, Mr. Spaceman
          BbmBbm chord             
Won't you please take me along
  AbAb chord
I won't do anything wrong

Hey, Mr. Spaceman
          BbmBbm chord              Eb7Eb7 chord         AbAb chord
Won't you please take me along for a ride


AbAb chord                           Bb7Bb7 chord
Woke up this morning, I was feeling quite weird
    Eb7Eb7 chord                    AbAb chord
Had flies in my beard, my toothpaste was smeared
                       Bb7Bb7 chord
Over my window, they'd written my name
      Eb7Eb7 chord                      AbAb chord
Said, so long, we'll see you again


EbEb chord        DbDb chord
Hey, Mr. Spaceman
          BbmBbm chord             
Won't you please take me along
  AbAb chord
I won't do anything wrong
EbEb chord        DbDb chord
Hey, Mr. Spaceman
          BbmBbm chord              Eb7Eb7 chord         AbAb chord
Won't you please take me along for a ride
