[the following intro is spoken over someone speaking in french
And english, perhaps giving a french lesson]:
I'm an alien from another sphere. the thing I like about the
Earth is the range of colours -- fantastic to mundane; brilliant
To dull. as I was penetrating the ozone, I c.. perchanced to
Notice the orange peel-like quality of the light playing upon the
S.. the ocean. I gotta go right now; someone is videotaping me
In my spaceship.

All around a water tank
Just a-waitin' for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Just a-waitin' in the rain
I walked up to a breakman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said, if you got money,
I'll see that you don't walk
I haven't got a nickel,
Not a penny for to show
Get off, get off, you railroad bum
And he slammed the boxcar door
They let me off in texas
A state I dearly love
The moon 'n' stars above me... and what else?

( song written by jimmie rodgers and performed by ken)
