Special Agent Gary Garrison, FBI, and Sergeant-Major Greg G. Gallagher, RCMP, are looking for witnesses of the strange lights over Niagara Falls the night before. They have been questioning tourists all day. Finally someone comes forward.

lyrics

Garrison: Can I get a witness? Will somebody testify?
Can I get a witness? Tell me, have you seen the light?

You want to tell me all about it.
You want to scream it! You want to shout it
from a mountain, I don’t doubt it.
So, go on, tell me all about it.

Can I get a witness? (Hoo…)
Can I get a witness? (Hoo…)

Can I get a witness? Will somebody testify?
Can I get a witness? Tell me, have you seen the light?

Have you seen the light? Have you seen the light?

With Chorus: There was a light up in the sky!

Garrison: Don’t carry that heavy weight around.
Just lay it down on me.
You can tell me anything.
I’m ready to believe.

I know that you’re hurtin’
and you doubt your sanity.
A secret is a burden
but the truth will set you free!

But the

With Chorus: truth will set you free!

Garrison: Can I get a witness? Will somebody testify?
Can I get a witness? Tell me, have you seen the light?

Can I get a witness? (Hoo…)
Can I get a witness? (Hoo…)

Witness: Dig this!
I was alone in the dark of the night,
all on my lonesome when I saw that light
and it shone down from above
There I stood, awash in a glorious beam of love.

And now I know (now I know)
Now I know (now I know)
Now I know (now I know)
We are not alone (Testify!)

We are not alone (Testify!)
And it’s alright (Testify!)
We are not alone (Testify!)
I have seen the light (Testify!)

All: There was a light up in the sky!!!
