Back From Mars

I've recently returned from Mars
I went for several years.
I rode in Martian motorcars,
bought Martian souvenirs.

I went to Martian movies
and saw Martian movie stars,
attended Martian concerts
and heard Martians play guitars.

I ate in Martian restaurants
and went to Martian schools.
I played on Martian tennis courts
and swam in Martian pools.

I hung around with Martian girls
and talked to Martian boys.
I went to Martian shopping malls
and played with Martian toys.

At last I'm back on planet Earth
from out among the stars.
So why does everyone I see here
act like they're from Mars?
