lyrics Copyright © 1996 by H. Paul Shuch, Ph.D.
Sung to the tune of Crazy by Willie Nelson (1961)
(awarded Honorable Mention at Lunacon '97 Filksong Competition)

Crazy / Scholars of dubious stature,
Thinking / They can converse with the stars!
Dig their / Scandalous paper in Nature.
Crazy, / Cocconi and Morrison are.

Crazy / Searching for communications
Tuning / Right on the Hydrogen Line!
They say / Signals from alien nations
Reach us. / They must be out of their minds.

Drake is / Building equipment at Green Bank:
"Ozma." / Guess what he's planning to do?
Listen / To Epsilon Eridani
At H1. / I guess that he's crazy too.

Think of / The universe they envision:
Planets / Abundant and teeming with life!
Colleagues / Must view their work with derision.
They're crazy for dreaming, / Crazy for scheming.
I only hope they're right.

Performed by Dr. SETI ® on the CD "Sing More Songs of SETI" Sing More Songs of SETI CD
