“Lonesome Friends of Science”
The lonesome friends of science say
“The world will end most any day”
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, and my family, uh-huh

Now Poor ol’ planet Pluto down
He never stood a chance no how
When he got uninvited to
The interplanetary dance

Once a mighty planet there
Now just an ordinary star
Hangin’ out in Hollywood
In some ol’ funky sushi bar

The lonesome friends of science say
“The world will end most any day”
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog and my kids, and me uh-huh

The Vulcan lives in Birmingham
Sometimes he just don’t give a damn
His head is full of bumblebees
His pride hangs down below his knees

Venus left him long ago
For a guy named Mars from Idaho
The Vulcan sent a wedding gift
Three-legged stool and a wheelchair lift uh-huh

The lonesome friends of science say
“This world will end most any day”
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me uh-huh

Uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh, uh-huh

Those bastards in their white lab coats
Who experiment with mountain goats
Should leave the universe alone
It’s not their business, not their home

I go to sleep and it never rains
My dog predicts hurricanes
She can smell a storm a mile away
That’s all the news we have today uh-huh

The lonesome friends of science say
“The world will end most any day”
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog and my family

Uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh, uh-huh
