The Lyrics

I dig, 'cause I'm a Mars rover,
And I wanna know what's in these rocks.
I wan-na be a success
after so many missions flopped.

The climate may not please me,
The sunshine may just tease me,
But hey, it feels so groovy to say:

I dig the rocks and the boulders
To find out if they ever had life.
NASA's got a good thing goin'
If the politicians get over their strife.

And they when saw my landing,
Mission control was dancing,
Hey, I nailed my target to a tee.

Now I'm looking for water
millions of miles away.
My crystal-clear images,
Hey, they tell you what's on Mars today.

But what I'm here to find out,
When all the soil is mined out,
Is what Mars was like so long ago.

I dig, (oh, oh) 'cause I'm a Mars rover,
Back on Earth I could cause a scene.
I think I could find out somethin',
'Bout what these soil formations mean.

But if I find life was here,
On Earth the people will cheer,
And I'll have a place in history.

Ba, Pa, Ba, Pa, Ba, Pa, Pa,
Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa.

Ba, Pa, Ba, Pa, Pa, Pa,
Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa, Pa.
