small logo Sing a Song of SETI

lyrics Copyright © 1995 by H. Paul Shuch, Ph.D.
sung to the tune of Take Me Home, Country Roads by Danoff, Nivert & Denver

Big antennas in the valley:
Quiet valley, Green Bank West Virginia.
You can slice the silence with a knife;
Microwave receivers search for signs of life.


Will the NRAO
Be the ones who will show
All of mankind we have neighbors?
Make it so, NRAO.

Project OZMA, 1960,
Frank Drake surveys two of our companions.
When he hears a signal from the sky:
U2 interference, not an ETI.



We'll meet our destiny on fourteen twenty MegaHertz,
Searching for intelligence from worlds far away.
So far we have verified no alien transmission
But we will, any day.

Soon the Order of the Dolphin
Makes this a respectable endeavor.
Grand equation, courtesy of Frank,
Glory to our SETI colleagues at Green Bank.

Final Chorus:

May the NRAO
Be the ones who will show
All of mankind we have neighbors.
Make it so, NRAO.

Performed by Dr. SETI ® on the CD "Demented!" Demented! CD
