Is Anybody Out There? (lyrics)

By Michael Ryther and William John Wisely, Jr.

Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there in outer space?
We’re having a party on planet Earth
Wondered if you’d like to come

Now often I’ve looked up at bright shiny stars
Wondered if there was a planet like ours
A planet where life can dance to a beat
With people and creatures I’d like to meet

Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there in outer space?
We’re having a party on planet Earth
Wondered if you’d like to come

You’ll find us in a galaxy called Milky Way
Shaped like a spiral most scientists say
We’re third from the sun that’s yellow and bright
A blue and green marble that’s jumpin’ with life

Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there in outer space?
We’re having a party on planet Earth
Wondered if you’d like to come

If you’re a nice ET
Just RSVP and drop on by
If you don’t want to eat me
Why don’t you meet me for cake and pizza pie

I do not care if you have eight eyes
Suction cupped tentacles would be no surprise
Everyone comes in all shapes and sizes
So let’s get together and celebrate life

Is there anybody out there
Is anybody out there
Is anybody out there in outer space?
We’re having a party on planet Earth
Wondered if you’d like to meet face to face

Cause we’re having a party, we’re having a party
We’re having a party, we’re third from the sun
We’re having a party but I must say I’m sorry
My dad said no spaceships can park on the lawn
