Here come the Martian Martians,
And I wouldn’t be surprised if they were riding on their Martian bike.
And we have to find out right now
What kind of flavor do these Martians like.
Here come the Martian Martians
And they’re riding on their Martian bike
Well, we have to find out right now
What kind of ice cream do the Martians like?
Here come the Martian Martians
Why staying in such a cheap hotel?
Maybe we should help out the Martians
Looks like the Martians ain’t doin’ too well.
Martian time time time
Well, it’s Martian rhyme time
We got a Martian rhyme for Martian Martian time
And the Martians got notebooks in their little hand
Well they’re strangers in this land
Martian time It’s Martian Martian time
Well, here come the Martian Martians.
They’re trying to fight with rocks and sticks
Don’t the Martians know better?
Looks like they’re up to their same old tricks.
Well, here come the Martian Martians,
They got notebooks in their hand.
What are they trying to write down?
I guess they must be strangers in this land.

And I hope they like me too.

And give some to I.

Where’s their financial advisor?
Somebody should take him by the hand.
