lyrics

The girl with the marble cake hair
Is sitting in her under wear
By a window looking out at
God knows where

While somewhere far away
Mummy Daddy and the children play
Happy families
With nobody to blame
The day before the aliens came

Oh come back Mummy
I'm frightened of the dark
Oh come back Daddy
they're making the dog bark
Using frequencies that only we can hear
Blowing up skycrapers
And filling us with fear
I wish that you were here
To hold my hand

The girl with the marble cake hair
Is rocking back and forth in her chair
By a window in Community care
While somewhere far away
The doctors and the social workers say
It's OK
There's nobody to blame
The day before the aliens came
