Starfleet to scoutship, please give your position, Over.
I'm in orbit around the third planet from the star called
The sun. Over.
You mean it's the earth? Over.
Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent
Species. Over.
I think we should take a look.

Strange beautiful grass of green,
With your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine

Strange beautiful grass of green,
With your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine

Although your world wonders me,
With your majestic and superior cackling hen
Your people I do not understand,
So to you I shall put an end
And you'll
Never hear
Surf music again

Secret
Oh, secret
Oh
Shhhh...

    An anthem to a good trip, the first, very first, song i heard when high on weed. It changed my way of looking at everything in the world in a few short minutes.

    It's not "superior cackling hen". It's "superior tackling hand" (rhymes with "understand") -- a reference to the human hand with its opposable thumb. Hendrix probably wanted the word "grappling" or "grasping" instead, but "tackling" is what he went with. It suggests that he, as the alien, doesn't have a hand with an apposable thumb. Maybe he has a tentacle.
