Maybe it was some synthesized sound. With Sting, the gentleman in New York, every time he says the word “alien” the alien sound is in the background. It could be mistaken for the water drop sound, which can be found on youtube, of course. But the organic water drop sound is clearer. It’s the clarity that makes it startling. Perhaps Sting’s lyrics intended the sound of an alien moving about, rather than speaking.
The "bloop" sound sounds like a keyboard that plays all the upbeats of the passage, including under the lyric "alien".

Mahavishnu. A hopeful name for times of war.
