Dan Bern - Earth Girl

Song Lyrics

Francisco VonCairo Berocious Beracious Bacause
Was a guy who knew more about what was not would than what was
Mostly he slunk around home
Sometimes heíd let it alone
Sometimes he slunk around down at the corner salon

Now the corner saloon was a shack in a rik-marak town
He walked until he was at front then he threw himself down
The town was afraid of the dark
And down at the corner park
Our boy had the seat of his pants by the school of the yard

Now Francisco VonCairo Berocious Beracious Bacause
Was the fifth of five kids
All Berocious Beracious Bacause
One got dropped from a plane
Two got run over by a train
The fourth was Carmel SanCarlo Berocious Beracious Bacause

She said Honey you know pretty soon well like its gonna seem
You and me oughta once pick up and take some kind of extreme
Itís good to do it with someone
Sometime do it with me
If the first time donít make it the second might could just be better

One night Carmel SanCarlo Berocious Beracious Bacause
Checked out her e-mails two or three times just because
One was from Tajikistan
Some guy selling raspberry jam
And some web cam girls sticking dynamite inside themselves in Japan

Well Francisco VonCairo Berocious Beracious Bacause
Loved Carmel SanCarlo Berocious Beracious Bacause
She ran and turned her machine on
She heard something out on the lawn
And here is the message
The note that came up on the screen

If I could travel all around the universe
And I would go from galaxy to galaxy
And I would visit every planet
And on every planet I would have one girl
And I would take her out where I am whenever I was flying by that planet
You would be my Earth girl
You would be my Earth girl
You would be my Earth girl
You would be my Earth girl

Now Christian Ikeba SanCarlo VonCairo Berocious Beracious Bacause
Came to town one Saturday night
One Januray 12th
He found in the dust
In the red dust youíll find
If you travel south east of ????Sacaro???
He found Carlita Beracious Bacause
Making sauce out of ?????
He walked up to her and he sat on the ground
He gave her sugary sweets he had found
And he sang what he said and he said what he sang
He took off his shirt and he flung it around
He said you are my Earth girl
You are my Earth girl
You are my Earth girl
You are my Earth girl
