Written by I. Hanson, T. Hanson, Z. Hanson

It started at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere
Sitting beside me was a man with no hair
From the look on his face to the size of his toes
He comes from a place that nobody knows

Oh, maybe I’m hallucinating, hyperventilating
Letting this big-toed bald man sitting here tell me about the sky
Maybe I’m hallucinating, hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn’t tell you why

I’ve been sitting here too long by the man from Milwaukee
He’s been talking too long on his yellow walkie talkie
He’s been talking to Mars but I think he’s wacky
He says they’ll come get him, come get him some day

He says where he’s from is called Albertane
There they use more than 10% of their brain
But you couldn’t tell it from they way they behave
They run around in underwear and they never shave

Oh, maybe I’m hallucinating, hyperventilating
Letting this big-toed bald man sitting here tell me about the sky
Maybe I’m hallucinating, hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn’t tell you why

I’ve been sitting here too long by the man from Milwaukee
He’s talking too long on his yellow walkie talkie
He’s talking to Mars but I think he’s wacky
He says they’ll come get him, come get him some day

This is Mother Bird calling Baby Bird
Baby Bird come in, come in Baby Bird
For the love of Pete come in!
This is Baby Bird, sorry I was watching Court TV
Do you copy? Do you copy?
Of course we copy, 24 hours a day in color

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you the rest
The man sitting by me who was barely dressed
Flew off to Milwaukee or perhaps Albertane
And left me at the bus stop just barely sane

Oh, maybe I’m hallucinating, hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn’t tell you why

I’ve been sitting here too long thinkin’ about Milwaukee
I’ve been talking too long on my yellow walkie talkie
I’m talking to Mars you may think I’m wacky

I know they’ll come get me, come get me someday
I know they’ll come get me and take me away
I know they’ll come get me, come get me someday
If not tomorrow then maybe today
