Lyrics: Roger Coghill
Why, why butterfly
Can you find your mate among the rye?
Explain to me honey bee
Your trackdown dance of mystery.
Glow glow, firefly, show
Your lovelights when the moon is low.
Click click that rhetoric
And dolphin schools soon learn the trick.
Through the bricks and through the mortar
Through the air and through the water
Armies of electrons flow
With messages that come and go.
All your body has to say
Is broadcast from your DNA
Messages that bring love’s news
To all sialic residues.
But scientists recoil in fear,
Funding agents will not hear
Showing fierce antipathy
At mention of telepathy.
And yet we all have known events
When we felt some distant sense;
When we felt a loved one’s pain
From far away, within our brain.
Sure, messages are carried far
By electrons from each star:
These small specks can sure converse
Right across the Universe.
So in every cell that you possess
You’ll feel the warmth of my caress.
You’ll learn my message from above
And feel my electronic love.
