Wonder, Stevie - Saturn Lyrics




Packing my bags - going away
To a place where the air is clean
On Saturn
There's no sense to sit and watch the people die
We don't fight our wars the way you do
We put back all the things we use
On Saturn
There's no sense to keep on doing such crimes

There's no principles in what you say
No direction in the things you do
For your world is soon to come to a close
Through the ages all great men have taught
Truth and happiness just can't be bought - or sold
Tell me why are you people so cold

I'm......
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to Saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learn to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

We have come here many times before
To find your strategy to peace is war
Killing helpless men, women and children
That don't even know what they are dying for
We can't trust you when you take a stand
With a gun and bible in your hand
And the cold expression on your face
Saying give us what we want or we'll destroy

I'm......
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to Saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learned to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

  8. Rossella Spadi

    ❤️❤️❤️

  9. Dr. killpatient

    One of Stevies oddest songs

  10. Aneth Poisson

    Sublime

  11. M A

    This is an incredibly cryptic song. He’s talking about the occult nature of Saturn. The god of time. You can research Jordan Maxwell and the Saturn theory to know what he is on about. Basically Saturn is embedded in human memory because it had a prominent role in the solar system at the dawn of human civilization

  12. jodavo22

    How in gods name do 55 people not like this song? I cry...it brings something out from deep within 😢

  13. Victoria Johnson

    Amazing!😑

  14. Kevin Bland

    co-written by Mike Sembello

  15. dave williams

    Have you seen Stevie Wonder's house?
    Neither has he.
    Thank you! I'll be here all week!

  16. kenny adoti

    You are all wrong about the meaning of this song. Saturn is Africa " give us what we want, or we'll distroy".

  17. Evelyn Davis

    I love this song, especially the part where he says with a gun and Bible in your hand

  18. Trent Davis

    This song encapsulates my entire childhood!!!

  19. Rae ofLyte

    I'm
    Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
    Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
    On Saturn
    People live to be two hundred and five
    Going back to Saturn where the people smile
    Don't need cars cause we've learned to fly
    On Saturn
    Just to live to us is our natural high


    Goodbye earthlings. ;)

  20. Mr. Johnson

    An ode to Saturn??? Hmmmm.

  21. Johnny Cutro-kelly

    My boys father big James showed me this song I learned alot about being a man from you big James miss you brother

  22. Joe Seal

    To think theres actually people out there that think stevie cant sing? Wtf

  23. 4world2change

    Please don't leave me here.

  24. Tom Elizalde

    Masterpiece !!!

  25. Daren Gilliam

    Am I wrong to want to this to be one of my jubilee songs when that day comes to join the ancestors

  26. Nick Urech

    yeah , just to live to us is our natural high. I just learned how to do that.

  27. Nick Urech

    so fitting for the times ! what truth to tell ! No one in power listens or believes .

  28. Bill Hay

    I love the "Ahhhhh" at 1:47 in the song.

  29. ShaneTheOutlaw

    Fuck you benny

  30. Brandon Burrell

    Preview for The Secret Life of Plants.

    Lamont Ingram

    Invasion of the body snatchers.

  31. Maisha Topez

    I agree. His best composition.

  32. blackgirlmagic love2007

    2019 anyone?me

    Curvinia Floyd

    Same girl same

  33. E Thatz All

    I'll be going back soon. 😎👍🚀

  34. Lynette Townsend

    Saturn a world
    Stevie Wonder could not imagine but seen

  35. BrotherApexx

    Afrofuturism at its finest

  36. Kirin Narukami

    I have to say, people are trying to attach hidden meanings to this stuff like English teachers

  37. ChArLz In ChArGe

    This fool worships Saturn.

  38. Micaï. Claude.

    I Have & i like this two albums vinyl !

  39. dan meme

    So true:
    We can't trust you when you take a stand
    With a burning bible in your hand
    With a cold expression on your face
    Saying give us what we want or we'll destroy

    Applies to today as well. Heartless cold people will always exist using the bible as an excuse to do harm to others. The more the world evolves the more love there is, it just takes time.

  40. Juan Castro

    Enorme canción. Uno de los pocos que podía tratar de igual a igual a Aretha Flanklin.
    41 "no me gusta". Pobrecillos...qué pena no poder apreciar semejante talento. Un saludo a todos!

  41. Joe Caldwall

    This song's working title was originally
    "Saginaw"...as in Michigan...

  42. dan meme

    Man I love how Stevie hits those "off" notes. No body like him.

  43. Lynette Townsend

    We can go there it is truly real for us

  44. Joan NAVARRO MIRALLES

    A vore..."lo" màxim!

  45. massimo cutrone

    simply wonderful!!

  46. D Me

    This album, & those classics before it, & the next two, were Steve's last truly great albums. But his legacy as a true musical genius will remain forever.

    Nedra Jackson

    To me this is one of my favs from Stevie....And yes given his history for giving Real Facts as to what is happening, even before some of you were born....Also whatever you feel after hearing this song, is your absolute right...
    I LOVE STEVIE....
    MAY HE ALWAYS BE REAL.

  47. Amber Maddox

    I needed this.

  48. Dane Powell

    stevie wonder has had a seminal influence on r&b

  49. brian Mc Carry

    enjoying this music for 40years
    thanks stevie
    listen to the words
    touch you deep in side

  50. C.K. Nelson

    Accidentally enjoyed this at 1.25X speed

  51. Mr. Shadow

    Is it still there lol ?

  52. Misses Mandarin

    I used to sing this all the time as teenager

  53. Naomi M

    I wish I could live on saturn...I love Stevie Wonder!

  54. Richard Brewer

    This was an included 45, not on one of the LPs. This is my favorite on an unbelievable album.

    Product of the 60's

    Yes.... it was....Great song.

    Marvin Wilson

    This is on the album. The other songs were on the 45.

  55. Melanie Thomson

    We have come here many times before
    To find your strategy to peace is war

  56. Darryl JF

    Sorry to burst your bubble ppl but Saturn is Satan and our Stevie is clearly a worshipper of Satan as this song illustrates !

    Danny Truth Magnified

    +S.R Woodward

    He's right. Satan is represented by the planet Saturn in occultism.

    Jayson Adams

    Typical of people who have hate in their lives to say hateful/evil things. All of Stevie Wonder's music has been about love, knowledge, and forsight..

    ChArLz In ChArGe

    This exactly what this is. He worships Saturn like most entertainers.

    Nichol R Spearman

    Darryl JF Cole, You Stupid!

  57. Terrell070

    Good song. Saturn makes a pretty good metaphor since many people know what it looks like through a telescope. Stevie didn't need to see it himself to have had it described to him.

  58. inkedProdigy

    This is definitely my favorite song off of the 10/10 album that is Songs in the Key of Life. It resonates like no other

    Bella's Corner

    Geez people this man has talent just sing

  59. Frank Austin

    What is the song about? Did he really go to Saturn? The songs sounds like that's his place to escape earth

  60. jurnagin

    Saturn represent Satan!! So what is he talking about in this song?

    Create Share & Give

    TheThreshermansson very interesting!

    TheThreshermansson

    yes do some research and understand whom Saturn is in this realm in which we are waking up in
    be aware of the symbolism of the Roman "god" Saturn the colours, numbers, shapes and names ...it will open your eyes a little more

    Patrice Scott

    Keep studying boo... You'll figure it out. The planets have 2 polar sides... Satan (materialism and control) is the negative side of Saturn that has been taken over by Earth.. Study astrology
    The positive traits of Saturn are wisdom...all knowing...every lasting life. Saturn represents the teacher.. Self control vs controlling others

    Logan Shaw

    I think it's just a literary device used to show what an outsider would think of humanity. "We have come here many times before / to find your strategy to peace is war / killing helpless men, women and children / That don't even know what they are dying for". Unfortunately, that is an accurate description of how humanity behaves sometimes.

    Giordan Braun

    @Patrice Scott wow thanks man is exactly the thing that i thought a moment ago.

  61. Daimsel Red

    I want to go to Saturn 😢

    Curvinia Floyd

    Lol same😦☹😥😢😭

    Tom Hyer

    hahaha look into Saturn then, find it's secrets out and then realize it pervades every part of your life and is even worshiped in major religions carried over from pagan beginnings. The star of Chiun, Remphan, Moloch, Satan, El, Anu, Ba'al, Shamash, Ra, Helios, Kronus, Cronos, Father Time, The reaper, are just a few names of the old ruler of the golden age.

    T Irby

    Satan and all those evil deities rule this earth .... but please take out the most high RA out of this group Don’t be fooled people Stevie was mislead it was an innocent mistake and he didn’t know but Saturn is NOT a good place

  62. Gravy 2

    mr steveland wonder a gem on this seminal album love ya

  63. goget2day

    Listen to the lyrics and see how they relate to the world today. Stevie has always wrote music depicting the inequalities that existed in the world.

    Gina buie

    That person is right Stevie aways sings songs you have to listen to the words it 's the truth😄 love all Stevie albums

    Frater Deus Est Veritas

    @Gina buie The irony in that statement is that it is well known in the occult that Saturn controls the restrictions limitations we must break through. You can not have 'equality' unless people are equal in responsibility, organization, effort and discipline.

    ANKH MAN

    Life on Saturn is Real

    V J

    @Frater Deus Est Veritas LIKE PUTTING AWAY TE THINGS YIOU USE

  64. brian pearl

    A GEM !!!! :o <3

  68. George Darden

    Cold, cold, cold !

  69. George Darden

  70. Richardson Taylor

    so emotional and good for all of peace

    Kevin B

    I agree, this song and "You Will Know"!!🙂

    JOEY JOEY

    @Rod McDonough and Mike Sembello

    Lamont Ingram

    @Frater Deus Est Veritas The interspecies predators that have infiltrated humanity come from several moons of Saturn/Satan/Santa. That is why they worship the time being Cronus instead of our natural sun that gives us life.

    TheGooners11

    I used to think so but is he not singing about what the Illuminati believe? They all prey to Saturn

    S. Brown

    I love this song! I often wonder about Saturn! I would love to go there!

  77. JBone585

    Had to thumbs up so it wasn't 666 lol

    Queen Khalifa

    That’s an amazing number

    Azazel

    @Queen Khalifa the best number

    Tom Hyer

    @Azazel Azaz...."el", hm you would like 666, lol

  78. Melissa Mc

    I'm last song I ever want to hear

  79. wpl

    Best lines:

    We have come here many times before
    To find your strategy to peace is war
    Killing helpless men, women and children
    That don't even know what they're dying for
    We can't trust you when you take a stand
    With a gun and bible in your hand

    AND SOME DUDE IS SAYING THAT THIS IS EVIL

  80. 20twenty

    This kind of reminds me of that Yellow Brick Road song by Elton John.

  81. ᗰIᑕᕼᗩEᒪ IᑎTEᒪᒪIGEᑎT ᔕᑭᗩᑕE ᑕᖇᗩᖴTᔕ ᗰIᑎᗪ ᑕOᑎTᖇOᒪ

    2015 I've seen things in our skies night & day. No one can tell me that people walk among us from other planets. Stevie this song has open my third eye. Thank you for this enlightenment if you are from Saturn did you get here by craft or the STAR GATE PROGRAM? The. Two legged cattle only believe that they are the only humans in the entire galaxy. There not!!!!!

    inkedProdigy

    @Michael Wayne welp there's no reaching you right now. I tried

    Jesse Merkelson

    that is the message you got from this song

    inkedProdigy

    @Jesse Merkelson crazy right? Sigh

    denise mitchell

    You should watch that norman burgrun video on the tall blacks of Saturn...the Ring makers of Saturn

    Nesta X

    You should open your mind to what he's conveying and have dialogue. Could change your life

  82. Tanuke Smith

    I love this song!

  83. Dee Dufor

    one day I truly believe we can have Saturn here on earth

    Lamont Ingram

    The so called dawning of the new day golden age of saturn age of aquarius is already here.

    steven correa

    @Lamont Ingram all you need is binoculars go look into the night sky

    Tom Hyer

    Carmelwine

    Did you find it yet?

  88. Shirley Tulas

    Stevie is talking about heaven were there is eternal LOVE I believe

    Bud Wallace

    My favorite from him is, "A place in the sun". It's a beautiful song.

    Shirley Tulas

    Me too it blows me away each time I listen and agree reminds me of heaven nice to chat with you on this

    Bud Wallace

    How do you feel about colbie callait, Christina Perry, and Alanis Morissette?

    rayful edmond

    +Shirley Tulas check out the ring makers of saturn. Nasa scientist norman bergrun said he seen 7 ft black people getting off ships.

    ANKH MAN

    Oh he talking about Saturn you heard right

  89. Andrew Bates

    "going back to Saturn where people smile" thanks for sharing

  90. Life 4 Learning

    "We have come here many times before to learn your strategy to peace is war". Stevie a lyrical genius! If we could only as a species implement the peace and love he seeks to describe! While I am commenting, do you think we as a species could really fall to the depths of destruction to find it expedient to develop an instrument such as HAARP, use it as a weapon, sacrificing human lives testing it on developing weather patterns such as hurricane “Sandy”?My hope is that it is only conspiracy.

  91. rtoriq

    *smh* They were talking about Gil

  92. Miguel Aguilar

    After hearing this song, I'm packing my bags for Saturn! Goodbye Earth! You can keep your wars, hypocrisy, racism, holocausts, killing and mental retardation! I heading for the rainbows, moonbeams, and orange snow on Saturn!

    Tom Hyer

    hahaha look into Saturn then, find it's secrets out and then realize it pervades every part of your life and is even worshiped in major religions carried over from pagan beginnings.

    T Irby

    Ra is not in this group .... Amun Ra is not RA

    T Irby

    Saturn is the Planet of evil and trickery , Kronos is the god of the Bible and is the father of lies . Stevie was trying to defeat its energy with love listen closely people

    V J

    @Tom Hyer YOU ARE READING TOO MUCH NINTO AN INNOCENT SONG ABOUT PEACE AND HARMONY, MAYBE YOU OUGHT TO HAVE A TALK WITH GOD.

  93. Auntkekebaby

    P2 To the people referencing 666, it means 6 protons, 6 electrons, 6+neutrons= carbon. We are all carbon/melanin based people. It's necessary for all life on earth. You can actually see the carbon on the darker people. Stevie along with many other black artist of the 70s were studying. There's so much deception and distortion of the ancient teachings done by the church and others for political reasons and for war. Does this song even FEEL evil?? This is NOT an evil song. It's BRILLIANT!

    Tom Hyer

    @CS V Thank you lol, its literally everything material. Saturn is Satan as well as the light bringer, a sad rule filled necessity to experience our world in our realm, But not to be worshipped or loved above God, the world will know soon, this info is getting out to the masses now slowly.

    Andrew Ayodele

    Well the way I remember the story of the origins of this song, Stevie meant for this song to be about his hometown SAGINAW (Michigan). Sembello misunderstood the name Saginaw and through an error in translation Saginaw morphed into "Saturn". As a result, this classic. Who knew? So most definitely this song wasn't meant as anything evil or Satanic.

    Esteban Diaz

    @Kubilay Ertuna I guess the building block of life, and the one used to make this esoteric connection, would have to be associated with the isotope that best represents life on earth, which would be Carbon-12, since it accounts for roughly 99% of all carbon there is in our planet.

    T Irby

    Why did you add RA to this group , Ra was good these deities you mentioned where all evil

    V J

    no they aren't. That is NOT what they are referring to in Revelations. They are referring to the orange beast. And right, living life peaceful, not destroying the environment is EVIL.

  94. Auntkekebaby

    P1 Stevie worshipping Satan...really?? Come on with this nonsense. In ancient allegories, Saturn was once considered our sun before the Sun we have now. It was known a El or Kronos. The Sun is also known as El. El as in electricity. The Sun gives us the spark of life. people must go WAY past the Bible for more information. The Bible pulls from these allegories but pp are taking it literally.

    Myra Jefferson

    It's just a song. Earth hurts so much can't people fantasize a little?!

    Avery Pack

    Even deeper, Saturn represents a new beginning or a returning. So he could be talking about returning to what was once a better world.

  95. RoarShacK

    songs in the key of life is so great!

  96. brian pearl

    "Rainbow, Moonbeams & Orange Snow.." This GEM came on the bonus '45' together with the LP; what a BONUS !! :)

  97. cluelesscheese1

    ohhhhhhhhhhhh!

  98. cluelesscheese1

    dont be crazy hes still alive dork

  99. rtoriq

    Stevie is my co-hero along with Gil Scott-Heron, and this song is my national anthem. i'm serious. And i want this played at my funeral.
