Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
Yes, truly, no lie
I could never tell a lie
But I am
Yes I am
Don’t you know?
I’m an alien

I flew down to Earth
That’s why my head
Still keeps its home
In the clouds
Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
Don’t you know?

You see why my clothes
Are so different
And strange
I’m an alien
Yes I am
Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
Don’t you know?

Now that’s why I
Am so freakishly smart
Freak, a good word
Appropriate and true
Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
Don’t you know?

That’s why I don’t talk
Like all of you do
My mouth and brain
Are wired
Differently
Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
Don’t you know?

Why I act
As if I’m not of this Earth
‘Cause I’m not
No, I’m not
Don’t look at me—I’m an alien
You know.

This was inspired by the member just.me, who mentioned on my I'm Strange...thread that they had thought of writing a song called Don't Look at Me--I'm an Alien. It inspired me--wanted to give just.me due credit.

Haha so funny!!! :)  I think we all feel this way sometimes :)

I wouldn't put it plast myself to someday go the whole nine yards and just grow some green antenies.  Nope- not even joking.

Anyway, I really liked this- super cute!!!

Hey ItWasAMurderButNotACrime, would you mind reading my story, "Encounter"?  It's ok if you don't feel like it, but I think it's my best work so far and I wanted to see what you think of it.  You've been reallt successful on this site for how long you've been a member, and I jsut wanted to see what you think :)

Some people like repitition. I am not one of them. Poetry is about saying more with less words. This had too many useless lines in it that did not further your cause. Good idea though. Please comment on my work.
