ALEX CHILTON
Patty Griffin


If he was from Venus

Would he feed us with a spoon?

If he was from Mars,

Wouldn't that be cool?

Standing right on campus

Would he stamp us in a file?

Hangin' down in Memphis all the while


Children by the million

Sing for Alex Chilton

When he comes 'round

They sing "I'm in love

What's that song?

I'm in love with that song"


Cerebral rape and pillage

In a village of his choice

Invisible man who can sing

In a visible voice

Feeling like a hundred bucks

Exchanging good looks face to face

Checkin' his stash by the trash

At St. Mark's place


Children by the million

Sing for Alex Chilton

When he comes 'round

They sing "I'm in love

What's that song?

I'm in love with that song"


I never travel far

Without a little big star


Runnin' round the house

Mikey Mouse and the Tarot cards

Falling asleep with a flop pop video on

If he was from Venus

Would he meet us on the moon?

If he died in Memphis, wouldn't that be cool?
