David Bowie's song, "The Bewlay Brothers", was about the shutting down of the sixties in another dimension. This is about the queen of the sun sending her knight-errant to reopen them. Or something.


Old man, cold man
Last unforetold man
New man, blue man
Our favorite tried and true man
Apeman, jape man
Always changing shape man
Why have you come?
Why have you come?

Free man, glee man
Body-building he-man
Frog man, bog man
Sitting on a log man
Starman, bar man
Blew his mind out in a car man
Why have you come?
Why have you come?


Ride ride love
Ride ride love
Inside love
Bye bye love

I blinked - all the stars were spinning
I blinked - the winds blew cold
I blinked - we thought we were winning
I blinked - my sons grew old

(instrumental break)

Late man, great man
Interstellar fate man
Gunman, sun man
Our troubles are undone man
Egg man, peg man
Dancing on one leg man
Now they have come
Now they have come
Now they have come
