There’s this alien at my door

I wonder what it’s here for

There’s this green dude a knockin

Asking what’s the music that’s “uh rockin”

“Oh, what do you have in mind?

Top 50 or one of a kind?

I got NWA and Ice Spoce Galore

Got Olivia Dean, Rodrigo & Moore

Tyler Dunn, Creator, but don’t forget the Thee

C’mon, ya want Rock, Soul, or Metal that’s hea-vy?”

I’ll ask if it wants Ruel with Omar Apollo

I think I’ll mention Tori Kelly’s Hollow

Say, “Oh crap, there’s Queen

No, not Taylor Swift who made Mean

Can’t forget about Flo Milli and Flo

Tell em if they don’t choose, “I’ll pick Fat Joe”

That’s when I may notice their cowboy hat and blue pants

Lookin’ like they’re ready for a good ole fashioned square dance

So, I’ll know they don’t want any of that Strauss

And I’ll give in and introduce them to country in my house. :(
