Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:
Them a chat bout on-ya
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!
Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something
Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!
In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship
I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!
Enoch walked with God
And he was found not
Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!
Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?
El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way
