Replacements – Alex Chilton lyrics

If he was from Venus, would he feed us with a spoon?
If he was from Mars, then that be cool
Standing right on campus, would he stamp us in a file?
Hangin' down in Memphis all the while

[Chorus:]
Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round
They sing "I'm in love. What's that song?
I'm in love with that song. "

So we will/Cerebral rape and pillage in a village of his choice.
Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice.
Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face.
Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place.

(Repeat chorus)

I never travel far, without a little Big Star

[Instrumental]

Runnin' 'round the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot cards.
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on.
If he was from Venus, would he meet us on the moon?
If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool, babe.

(Repeat chorus)
