She walks into Smokey's one hip at a time 
Like a broken field runner slippin' through the line 
He likes the way she looks so he calls the little wife says 
"Don't wait up for me I'll be workin' late tonight" 
Wife hangs up the phone, bursts into tears 
Calls her sister up and cries "Get over here" 

Sister tells her boyfriend be back in awhile 
Boyfriend wants a beer, the store is just a mile 
He leaves the motor running he'll only be a minute 
His car drives away with teenagers in it 
The driver tells his buddies, got one life to live 
They scream into the night "Let's get it over with" 

'Cause and effect, chain of events 
All of the chaos makes perfect sense 
When you're spinning round, things come undone 
Welcome to Earth 3rd rock from the Sun 

The kid guns the gas, the car starts to swerve 
Heads for a semi truck, jumps the curb 
Truck hits a Big Boy in the Shoney's parking lot 
And flies through the air takes out the bank clock 
Clock strikes a light pole, transformer sparks 
Lines go down, town goes dark 

Waitress calls the cops, says she saw it all 
Swears a giant alien has landed at the mall 
Cops ring up the mayor says there's panic in the streets 
"We hate to wake you up but we can't find the chief" 
Mayor says "Use your head if he ain't in his car 
He's hiding from his wife, down at Smokey's Bar" 

'Cause and effect, chain of events 
All of the chaos makes perfect sense 
When you're spinning round, things come undone 
Welcome to Earth 3rd rock from the Sun 

'Cause and effect, chain of events 
All of the chaos makes perfect sense 
When you're spinning round, things come undone 
Welcome to Earth 3rd rock from the Sun
