They'll tell you this is a cool planet. Born in Hoboken, I developed an interest in outer space after meeting a number of folks who no doubt came from elsewhere. Watch carefully and you'll see. My first, a guy in the city who cracked eggs in bourbon for breakfast. Then one who'd get in his car and drive on without starting the motor. I play tenor a mile from a fine island beach in a small town where people come from everywhere to celebrate everything. The Big Dish sits nearby gathering cosmic tunes. I have a gig tonight with an extended visa piano player. These guys all act like they're from Earth but after a time give themselves away- Bet you've already met one. Asked straight out they'll grin but wont go admitting. Hot tourist stop this rock- diverse and exotic and WET.
It's all the water that brings them. Space is mostly dry.
