    It's nine o'clock in the Chinese Take-Away

    And I blame the effects on the Gamma Ray, the Gamma Ray

    Well, losing out on Mah Jong

    I set my watch to Hong Kong

    I blame it all on the Gamma Ray

    I hear the Triad has crossed the Tong

    In Indianapolis, home of the Gamma Ray

    The deadly Gamma Ray, the deadly Gamma Ray

    And there ain't no guest list tonight at the Memorial Hall

    Cher got in 'cos she's so thin

    And even Evil Knievel tried to wheedle

    No, the deadly Gamma Ray, the Gamma Ray

    I blame it all on the Gamma Ray

    Know why, you know why? The Gamma Ray

    I hear there's entry only to those with green hair

    In the next World's Fair because of the Gamma Ray

    Yeah, I hear there's panic buying of shampoo

    And those little pots of goo

    You know why, you know why

    All because of the Gamma Ray

    When Alan McGhee went to Dundee

    He caused all the rock groups to flee

    Yeah, I read it in the N.M.E.

    It was the Gamma Ray

    The Chief Brigadier's head began to swell

    Firing off depleted uranium shells

    He bombarded everything pretty well

    Except for the Gamma Ray

    Blow it all away

    And then the Gamma Ray seemed to say

    If you carry twelve margaritas on a tray

    You cannot be touched in anyway

    By the benign, yet malevolent

    Mark two chrome, Gamma, Gamma, Gamma

    Gamma, Gamma, Gamma, Gamma Ray

    Gamma, Gamma, Gamma, Gamma

    Mama, mama, mama, mama, mama ray

    So, let's go back to Indianapolis, oh, Indianapolis

    Yeah, Indianapolis, Indianapolis

    Let's go back to Indianapolis

    Because it's the home of the Gamma Ray

    Sure, I'm gettin' on a train right now

    I'm outta here
