Lyrics to Saturn

I felt like i trivialized this song in the previous post by calling it an imaginary better world song, It is, but its also beautiful, corny, hopeful and in parts, true.

Saturn- written by Stevie Wonder and Mike Sembello

Packing my bags-going away
To a place where the air is clean
On saturn
There’s no sense to sit and watch the people die
We don’t fight our wars the way you do
We put back all the things we use
On Saturn
There’s no sense to keep on doing such crimes

There’s no principles in what you say
No direction in the things you do
For your world is soon to come to a close
Through the ages all great men have taught
Truth and happiness just can’t be bought-or sold
Tell me why are you people so cold

I’m……
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to saturn where the people smile
Don’t need cars cause we’ve learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

We have come here many times before
To find your strategy to peace is war
Killing helpless men, women and children
That don’t even know what they are dying for
We can’t trust you when you take a stand
With a cold expression on your face
Saying give us what we want or we’ll destroy

I’m……
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to saturn where the people smile
Don’t need cars cause we’ve learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

  1. Thanks for the lyrics- they make all the difference to me. The outer space theme in black culture has sponsored some other wild, beautiful, soaring music. I’m going to go play some Sun Ra now.
