Liner Notes: 

Just having a little fun to start off. Has to be at least mildly country, in my opinion, unless you're British or from the Commonwealth and want to do it differently.

I did a little research and have included an alternate bridge that may or may not work for the UK.

Please contact me if you'd like to set these lyrics to music. I may not get back to you as quickly as you'd like, as I am living 8 hours ahead of the East Coast of the US or, if you prefer, 3 hours ahead of the time in England.

Cheers,
Doug

NOTE: Zeekle has asked to set this to music.

Lyrics: 

[Verse 1]
A few short weeks ago
Driving country roads
I watched in terror as the sky turned red

I began to shake
Then slammed on the brakes
A flying saucer landed up ahead

[Verse 2]
These little guys crawled out
Took a look about
One of them stared right into my eyes

My body went all limp
As they hauled me on their ship
The fancy Frisbee rose into the skies

[Chorus]
I was abducted by aliens
Their ‘lectric fingers made me twist and wince
Wasn’t lasting pain
But they messed up my brain
I ain’t been the same man ever since

[Verse 3]
They didn’t say a word
But anyway I heard
Those little guys ask how much I was worth

I said I was poor
They dragged me to the door
Said, “How’d you like to free fall back to Earth?”

[Chorus]
I was abducted by aliens
Their ‘lectric fingers made me twist and wince
Wasn’t lasting pain
But they messed up my brain
I ain’t been the same man ever since

[Bridge –American version]
I woke still dressed atop my bed
But know it’s not a dream
I used to be a Dallas fan
But now Detroit’s my team
I ditched my Chevy for a Ford
Obey all traffic signs
And how do you explain that I
Now get the New York Times?

[Bridge –British version]
I woke still dressed atop my bed
But know it’s not a dream
I used be a ManU fan
Now Liverpool’s my team
I ditched my Mini for a Golf
I sport a cardigan
And how do you explain that I
Now get The Guardian?

[Chorus]
I was abducted by aliens
Their ‘lectric fingers made me twist and wince
Wasn’t lasting pain
But they messed up my brain
I ain’t been the same man ever since

Ha ha, love it. Love UFO, alien encounter stuff.
I’d be happy to add some music if that’s ok?

This is lots of fun, Doug. Smile And I enjoyed both bridge versions. I'll check back again when the music's up.

This is a delight! Tons of alien fun and frivolity and abduction and poking and prodding! I am beyond tickled that you included both an American and British bridge! These lyrics are clever AF. I enjoyed my read!!

I really like the cheerful way the singer breezes through a cataclysmic event and invasive personal torture. Couldn't wait to hear exactly what effect all that probing had had, and wasn't disappointed. What a unique act of sadism to give someone a perfectly ordinary life - yet one which is perfectly extraordinary to them!
