Exiliado en Londes, Caetano le dedicó esta canción al gris otoño inglés.
En el estribillo el bahiano buscaba "platos voladores en el cielo" londinense.
Quizás con esta melodía cálida y pachorrienta, despejamos una gris Montevideo y encontramos el sol en nuestro cielo.
Que la disfruten!

Letra:


I'm wandering round and round, nowhere to go
I'm lonely in London, London is lovely so
I cross the streets without fear
Everybody keeps the way clear
I know I know no one here to say hello
I know they keep the way clear
I am lonely in London without fear
I'm wandering round and round, nowhere to go
While my eyes go looking for flying saucers in the sky
Yes my eyes go looking for flying saucers in the sky
Oh Sunday, Monday, Autumn pass by me
And people hurry on so peacefully
A group approaches a policeman
He seems so pleased to please them
It's good at least, to live and I agree
He seems so pleased, at least
And it's so good to live in peace
And Sunday, Monday, years, and I agree

While my eyes go looking for flying saucers in the sky
Yes my eyes go looking for flying saucers in the sky
I choose no face to look at, choose no way
I just happen to be here, and it's ok

Green grass, blue eyes, grey sky (2x)
God bless silent pain and happiness
I came around to say yes, and I say

While my eyes go looking for flying saucers in the sky
