  • Song Lyrics:
    I was waiting in the express lane with my 12 items or less
    At the checkout counter at the local grocery store
    I was only passin' by
    But a paper caught my eye
    And I learned a few things I never knew before

    It said your pet may be an extraterrestrial
    It said the ghost of Elvis is living in my den
    You can learn to cope with stress
    And you can beat the IRS
    And the incredible frog boy is on the loose again

    Oh, Midnight Star
    It's in the weekly Midnight Star
    Aliens from outer space are sleeping in my car
    Midnight Star, I wanna know, I wanna know

    Eat jelly donuts and lose 20 pounds a day
    Hear the story of the man born without a head
    And top psychics all agree
    That the telephone company
    Will have a brand new service that lets you talk to the dead

    Oh, Midnight Star
    You can believe it if you read it in the weekly Midnight Star
    They're keeping Hitler's brain alive inside a jar
    Midnight Star, I wanna know, I wanna know

    Tell me, tell me, tell me how to make my bust-line grow
    Midnight Star, I wanna know

    Oh, Midnight Star
    Well, don't you know that
    I read it, I read it in the weekly Midnight Star
    The UFOs have landed and we'll tell you where they are
    Midnight Star, I wanna know, I wanna know

    Midnight Star
    Well, you can read all about in in the weekly Midnight Star
    You can use your ESP to learn to play guitar
    I wanna know, I wanna know

    (Ah, Midnight Star) I wanna know, I wanna know
    (Ah, Midnight Star) I wanna know, I wanna know
    (Ah, Midnight Star) I wanna know, I wanna know
    (Ah, Midnight Star) Enquiring minds like mine wanna know

    (You can read it {x4} in the Midnight Star {x2})
    (Ah, Midnight Star) I wanna know, I wanna know
    {repeat and fade}
    (Sonic SBL)
