"Lyrics written by Alphaville except Lady Bright - Faster Than Light: written by Albert & The Heart of Gold".
Actually the credits, as such, are wrong:

There was a young lady named Bright,
Whose speed was far faster than light;
She started one day
In a relative way,
And returned on the previous night.

is a short text written by A. H. Reginald Buller, published in Punch (19 December 1923).

he wrote this second verse later on:

To her friends said the Bright one in chatter,
"I have learned something new about matter:
My speed was so great,
Much increased was my weight,
Yet I failed to become any fatter!"
