Well that's fine, but we got to find out right now
Just what would these Martians like

Here come the Martian Martians
Well they're riding on their Martian bike

Well the Martians got the notebooks in their little hand
Well they're strangers in this land
Here come the Martians,

And it's getting to be quite a tale
They landed their big old saucer
In a shopping centre in Auburndale

It has three trillion taillights, 3000 carburetors
I guess that one is the boss sir
Well I can't say much for their chocolate cake
But they make quite the flying saucer

And they're taking home movies too
But they can't develop better pictures
Any better than your average earthling do
Well, the lines of Martians at the camera store
It would take an hour and a half just to fit through them
But they're determined to make these home movies
And make all their little Martian relatives sit through them

It's Martian time, that's right
It's Martian time
We make up these little rhymes cause of Martian Martian time
(It could happen any minute)
Well they're gonna have the notebooks in their little hand
You see they're gonna be strangers in the land
Here come the Martians, because of Martian Martian Martian
Well it's Martian Martian time

It's got 30 taillights 200 carburetors
I hope they don't get lost sir

It's Martian time
It's Martian time
We make little rhymes cause of Martian Martian time
Well the Martians got the notebooks in their little hand
Well they're strangers in the land
Here come some of the Martians
It's Martian Martian time

Well, here come the Martian Martians
In fact it's getting to be quite a tale
Well they landed their flying saucer
In a shopping centre near Auburndale
It had a billion taillights 200 carburetors
I guess that one is the boss sir
Well I can't say much for their chocolate cake
But they make quite the flying saucer

It's Martian time
It's Martian time
We make little rhymes cause of Martian Martian time
Well they got the notebooks in their little hands
You see the Martians are still strangers in this land
Here come the Martians ???
It's Martian Martian time

Well here come the Martian Martians
And they're taking home movies too
But they don't know how to develop the pictures
Much better than the average Earthling do
Well the lines of Martians at the camera store
They take an hour and a half just to get through them
But they're determined to make home movies
Then make all their Martian relatives sit through them

It's Martian time
It's Martian time
We make up little rhymes cause of Martian Martian time
Well the Martians got the notebooks in their little hand
Well they're still strangers in this land
Here come all the Martians
Well it's Martian Martian time
Well it's Martian Martian time
Well it's Martian Martian
Bop bop
It's Martian Martian time

And they're probably riding on their Martian bike

But they're determined to make home movies
So they can make their poor Martian relatives sit through em
