Franklin D. Zodiac
he was anything but cute
just a scaly-green body
in a worn-out spaceman suit
He had twelve bony fingers
dubbed Heavenly Hollywood
and he could make a guitar howl
like no Earthly musician could
Franklin pick your brains out
Frankie do your thing
FDZ for president
The Cosmos Guitar King
He took the Gravity Gang
on The Zigzag Tour of Mars
it eclipsed pay-per-view ratings
on Far Out With The Stars
His debut Black Hole album
made the charts at twenty one
by month's end it had rocketed
all the way to number one

His sound they named Deep Universe
wired twelve-string to the core
his solar sea of speakers
raised a radioactive roar
Franklin pick your brains out
Frankie do your thing
FDZ for president
The Cosmos Guitar King
It’s ice cream
in the morning
Macaroni
at midnight
Frank the Alien
never sleeps
accept on satellites

It’s French fries
in the sauna
In the pool
it’s Bits and Bites
Frank the Alien
never fades
accept on red-eye flights

Frank’s Fans were everywhere
in every biosphere
if you made a distant dwarf
a Frank Freak would appear
Venus entered Frankosphere
hopped a shuttle from The Crater
started out with chirps and smiles
went telepathic later
Booze'an'drugs were not Frank's style
meteor crystals his first choice
and he’d fry Martian mushrooms
so he'd get a Human voice

Franklin pick your brains out
Frankie do your thing
FDZ for president
The Cosmos Guitar King
One time I played with Frankie
down at Sunspot on the Moon
we shared the Galactic sound stage
viewed by millions live on Zoom

Where’d solar slide originate?
he said the Milky Way
if I pass All-Terrestrial
I’m gonna orbit there some day
Franklin pick your brains out
Frankie do your thing
FDZ for president
The Cosmos Guitar King

Franklin D. Zodiac
he was anything but cute
just a scaly-green body
