Lyrics:

HITCHING A RIDE

[0:27] I've been seeking hidden planets
[0:30] What I need's on Magrathea (Pronounced: Ma - gra - thee - ah)
[0:34] There's the secret of creation
[0:37] And the reason we're like who we are

[0:41] I act tough
[0:43] I've the* Heart of Gold
[0:48] The Universe is my playground

[Spoken - like over a radio: Jodrell Bank, come in, do you read me? This sounds crazy but we've picked something up. It's either a spaceship or radio signal is lost] [From track: "Low flying aircraft"]

[1:08] Fleeing from unfinished business
[1:12] Lunch is at the end of time
[1:15] Teleport no destination
[1:18] The Question's answer "what is six times nine?"

[1:22] I act tough
[1:24] I've the Heart of Gold
[1:29] The Universe is my playground

[Spoken - kind of drunk sounding: So it's Ol Janx, Santraginus five, Arcturan Mega-gin, Fallian marsh, Qualactin hypermint, tooth of Algolian Suntiger, Zamphur and an olive. It's like getting hit round the head with a gold brick, wrapped in lemon.] [From track: "Cheers!"]

[1:49] Coming home from long adventure
[1:53] I could teach you how we can fly
[1:56] Miss the groud when you fall over
[2:00] Fall in love while floating in the sky

[2:03] I act tough
[2:06] I've the* Heart of Gold
[2:10] The Universe is my playground

[Spoken - kind of sleazy but actually pulling it off: Hey babe, is this guy boring you? You wanna see my spaceship? I stole it myself from Damogran. You want to see it, and I could show you the entire Universe.] [From track: "Come on"]

[2:30] Hitch a ride apon a starship
[2:34] Sleeping rough in space stations
[2:37] Making now my final journey
[2:41] To see God's last message to creation

[2:44] We would like to apologise
[2:48] For the inconvenience we've caused

[Spoken - meloncholy: I think ... I think I'm happy about it.]
[Finish with the sound of a robot collapsing]

[[*Not an error.]]
[Exit]
