Electric Light Orchestra

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are a British rock group from Birmingham, England who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO were formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album. more »

On the seven seas there was aphantom ship acoming, 
Shinin' in the dead of night, 
I heard the crew a hummin' 
Tunes that sounded like the Rolling Stones and Leonard Cohen. 
But they didn't know the words, 
So I assumed that they was foreign.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em, 
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.

I looked up in the sky there was a phantom plane a comin', 
Shinin' in the dead of night, 
I heard the pilot saying, 
Poems that were written by John Keats and Robert Browning. 
But he didn't know the words so, 
I suppose that it was nothing.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em, 
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.

Doctor please believe me, I know you won't decieve me, 
But do these things I'm seein', have any hidden meaning. 
It's all good entertainment and it doesn't cost a penny. 
So please doc, let me teach 'em, if I could only reach 'em.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em, 
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.
