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 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 Big Boy in the Shoney's parking lot
It 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 third 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 third rock from the sun
Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun
Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun

Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun
