about

Written around 2000. Sam wrote and recorded this one on his own. Compost Shark performed this at almost every live gig and was one of their most popular tunes.

lyrics

After searching for a long time
I found the one for me
The one who set me free
Too much time has passed
She is the way things should be
The way things should be

It's strange in this alien world
I fell in love with an alien girl
Skin of Turquoise, eyes of brown
Alien girl turned my world upside down

I met her in an alien deli
Bought some sauce and vermicelli
Took my number, stood next to her
Opened my mouth, started talking for sure
I said something like "Blah blah hee hee"
Translated: do you want to go out with me?
She said "Yeah, yeah yeah"
I said "Yes, yes, yes"

It's strange in this alien world
I fell in love with an alien girl
Skin of Turquoise, eyes of brown
Alien girl turned my world upside down

She
Was wearing a bright blue dress
Me in tattered jeans what a mess
She seemed to like me, I sure liked her
Asked if I could know her name and she said
"Sure. My name is Celia. Straight from Montpelier."
Her name is Celia, straight from Montpelier
I said "It don't look like you're from Vermont"
(beep beep beep)
She said "I'm straight from New England.
Been here since birth. I just ate 52 carrots
Please pay no attention to my girth.
Proud to say I hail from Montpelier
Proud to say hey hey, my name is Celia."
