Song Lyric Sunday – Bee Gees

song-lyric-sunday-1

Song Lyric Sunday is brought to us by Jim Adams.

I did not follow the directions properly the first time and I want to make an amends. I am trying again to do it right. I would like to present the Bee Gees, “Barker of the UFO.”

I was totally unaware that the Bee Gees were founded in 1958. I was more aware of them in the 70’s. They were a hit because of writing their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. The fact that they shared their gifts is a confirmation of their great talent.

Barker sing me a song
Instead of counting trees,
Collecting aeroplane numbers now, Mr Barker

Clitheroe shine my shoes
Fly me to the moon,
Never before have I seen the like, Mr Barker

Then the moment of depression fell around, Mr Barker
And the changes of expression to a frown, My friend Barker

There must be something there
Shadow of a light, meaning men we are here, Mr Barker

Then the moment of depression fell around, Mr Barker
And the changes of expression to a frown, my friend Barker

There must be something there
Shadow of a light, meaning men we are here, Mr Barker

Barker sing me a song
Instead of counting trees,
Collecting aeroplane numbers now, Mr Barker

Clitheroe shine my shoes
Fly me to the moon,
Never before have I seen the like

Barker sing me a song
Instead of counting trees,
Collecting aeroplane numbers now, Mr Barker

Clitheroe shine my shoes
Fly me to the moon,
Never before have I seen the like

I enjoy many of the Bee Gees tunes. I even like their disco music.

  1. Barry, Robin and Maurice were all wonderful, but this song was not released on the original Horizontal album that came out in 1968, it came out on the 2006 re-release of that album. Gray Barker was a noted UFO writer, teller of tall tales, and hoaxer from the early 1950’s until his death in 1984. Barker was noted for his dramatic style blurring fact with fiction to capture the imagination. He is best known for his book, They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers. Thanks for adding this song Lauren.
