‘When aliens from beyond the stars
Thought to check out the human race
They knew they would need a welcoming space
A dive you can find just about any old place
Where they can probe our parts at a leisurely pace
So they’re here as Irish bars
Those shamrocks and harps are decoys designed
By an evil galactic mastermind
As I’m sitting here over a Jameson or three
Everything’s crystal clear to me.’
