Alan Parsons Project

Alan Parsons Project - CALL UP

rate me

Written by Ian Bairnson

No one ever lived a thousand years

Not like things we do or say

Some of those who really changed this world

We would welcome back today

They could really light the way

So call up Otis

Call up Marvin

Call for Buddy. Bring them on

Call for Ludwig

And for Johann

We need Lennon. We mean John

Words live longer than a thousand years

Listen hard to what they say

Single voices that would change this world

We would welcome back today

They would really light the way

So call up Jimi

Let's have Stevie

Look for Miles to take the floor

Call for Billie

Yell for Ella

Call up Elvis. We'll need more

So call up Einstein

Bring back Darwin

Call for Newton, and Luther King

We need Ghandi

Call Da Vinci

Call for Jesus. And ask him in

If we live another thousand years

Who could help along the way?

Some of those who came and changed this world

We would welcome back today

They would really light the way

So call up Garbo

Let's have Mansfield

Maybe Monroe, no she's for sure

Call Sinatra

Come on Crosby

Is that Bogie at the door?

Bring on Bergman

How about Dietrich

Let's have James Dean leave the car

Call Picasso

We need Monet

Let's have Rembrandt and Renoir

Call up Groucho

Come on Gable

Bring on Hitchcock and let's get Wilde

Come on Gershwin

Let's call Porter

Maybe Duke could show some style

Call up Shakespeare

Bring on Byron

We need Shelley, and maybe Keats

Come on Wordsworth

Bring on Browning

Robert Burns, and HG Wells
