small logo Sing a Song of SETI

lyrics Copyright © 1995 by H. Paul Shuch, Ph.D.
Sung to the tune of Leonard Bernstein's "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story

Puerto Rico
Is the home of the world's largest dish,
And it's working
At fulfilling SETI's fondest wish.

Serendip is
There, detecting
Any signals which happen our way.
Earth is joining
The Galactic Brotherhood some day.

Look at all the stars in the Milky Way.
All the other galaxies, too.
Maybe you can see
Creatures just like me.
Could they even be
Calling you?

Find the proper
Right ascension.
Tune the Water Hole, listen with care,
And you'll find
All the signals waiting out there.

Get a good receiver and LNA,
Listen near the Hydrogen line.
Pick a nearby G
Star and you will see
We've had company all the time.

Puerto Rico
Is the best telescope that we own
And someday
It will show us, we're not alone!
