Third Rock From The Sun Lyrics

She walks into Smokey's, one hip at a time
Like a broken field runner slippin' through the lines
He likes the way she looks so he calls the little wife
Says "don't wait up for me, I'll be working 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 a while"
Boyfriend wants a beer, the store is just a mile
He leaves the motor runnin', 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, lets get it over with

Cause and effect, chain of events - All of the chaos makes perfect sense
When you're spinnin' round - Things come undone
Welcome to Earth, third rock from the Sun

The kid guns the gas, car starts to swerve
Heads for a semi-truck, jumps the curb
Truck hits a bigboy in the Shoney's parking lot
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 street"
"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 spinnin' round - Things come undone
Welcome to Earth, third rock from the Sun

Cause and effect, chain of events - All of the chaos makes perfect sense
When you're spinnin' round - Things come undone
Welcome to Earth, third rock from the Sun
Welcome to Earth, third rock from the Sun
