The Dish in Evpatoria
(an Active SETI Singalong)
lyrics 2008 by Dr. H. Paul Shuch
sung to the tune of "The Bog Down in the Valley, Oh!"
aka "The Rattling Bog" (Irish traditional)

CHORUS:

Heigh, ho, the radar dish,
The dish in Evpatoria,
Heigh, ho, the giant dish,
The dish in Evpatoria.

And at the dish there is a tube,
A big tube, a klystron tube,
A tube at the dish,
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And from the tube there comes a wave,
A small wave, a microwave,
A wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And on the wave there rides a code,
A ones code and zeroes code,
A code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And in that code resides a call,
A warm call, a friendly call,
A call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

The coded call now forms a beam,
A thin beam, a narrow beam,
The beam with the call
And the call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And soon that beam will reach a star,
A warm star, a G2 star,
The star in the beam
And the beam with the call
And the call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

Around that star there is a world,
A fine world, a water world.
The world at the star
And the star in the beam
And the beam with the call
And the call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And on that world there lives a race,
A bright race of ETI,
The race on the world
And the world at the star
And the star in the beam
And the beam with the call
And the call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS

And to that race we send regards,
We greet them, respectfully,
The race on the world
And the world at the star
And the star in the beam
And the beam with the call
And the call in the code
And the code in the wave
And the wave from the tube
And the tube at the dish
The dish in Evpatoria.

CHORUS
