lyrics

Born and Raised on Mars

I was born on a street called Mars
8 track in a Bumble Bee car
Sounds cruel but how can you blame us
Our friend lived half way up Uranus…

My first kiss was as the roller rink
Berry flavor as I lick off the pink
Back when things were made in America
I was Han and she was Princess Leia

My mother said it’s a crazy world
Foolish boys and stupid girls
I didn’t know what else to say
Fell in love on the Milky Way
My mother said stay out of the fields
A prison break and you’ll get killed
Though it wasn’t that long or far
I was Born and Raised on Mars

Tony Hawk my only transportation
Highway one to the Constellation
Devil Ditch and Rattlesnakes
Rode my bike to the hidden lakes

My Grandpa drove a Skylark Buick
Drank Lucky Beer but nobody knew it
Hitchhikers along the way
Still alive to talk about the day

My mother said it’s a crazy world
Foolish boys and stupid girls
I didn’t know what else to say
Fell in love on the Milky Way
My mother said stay out of the fields
A prison break and you’ll get killed
Though it wasn’t that long or far
I was Born and Raised on Mars
