We got into their little black book
So they came in a space ship to take a look.
I saw them landing on Friday night
To bring love! ... to the modern world!
They're still trying to work us out.
They marvel at the life we lead
'Cause they're travelling at a different speed.
They think we're chasing after chicken feed.
We're alive! ... in a modern way.
We're still trying to work it out.

[Chorus:] (2 verses):
Come round and visit please.
I'll introduce you to my other family.
They came from Mars tonight,
To watch the human race go by.
Try to make you see,
[There's a future here for you and me.
But only love is going to make it right.
It could take all night!
They keep getting so confused,
But we're keeping them well amused.
We're like a team that always lose.
Wear our shorts! ... in an old fashioned way.
Still trying to work it out.

[Chorus:]

Come round and visit please,
I'll introduce you to my other family.
They leave for Mars tonight,
And if we go to too, it's gonna be alright.
It just might take us the whole of the night.
It just might take us the whole of the night.
[Repeat 3 times]
(Just might take us)
It just might take them the whole of the night.
[Repeat]
