I was going to work in my pickup truck
if I'm late again, then my ticket's up
then the sun was blocked, like a big dark cloud
It got real hot, and then I blacked out
I awoke midair, and to my surprise
a blinding light was shining in my eyes
500 feet above the ground
a metal ship, and then a whirring sound...
A door slid open, and they pulled me in
10 aliens standing there - with a grin
Talking gibberish, I start to pray
They had giant eyes and skin of gray.
The leader pointed, and they approved,
and then the ship began to move.
But there was a crash, and a ripping sound
and the spaceship fell straight to the ground!
A tear in the wall, I had to get a grip
'Cause I saw, we hit another ship!
Another kind of alien, ghostly white
And on the ground they began to fight....
So in the ruckus, I slipped away
to get to work, to make my pay
But then I fell into a well
today's just been a living hell
Someone heard me screaming, pulled me right out of there
but I lost my pants, and stood in my underwear!
(C'mon gimme a break!)
VERSE (soft part)
So I went to Kmart and I got some pants
hitched back to my truck, I still had a chance
It wouldn't start, it wouldn't go my way
I went back to town, to call Triple A...
He showed up quick, and I finally felt lucky
but flipped the wires and blew out the battery!
So it wasn't my fault, that guy's a jerk
And I promise boss, that's why I'm late for work
