Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Seems like NASA has a problem: they want to send a manned expidition to Mars, but how do they know what their crew need to wear?
NASA's problematic mission
For their manned Mars expedition
It's an awful long way, you know
But they're already planning to go
But now there's so many things to decide
What to take along there for the ride
And everybody thinks they know
All the things that must go inside
But there's big business sponsorship
For this really important trip
So forget instruments and tools
As they argue and focus on:

Footwear - Adidas or Nike?
Crikey! Wondering what to wear
Where there's so little air
Should they be wearing denims?
Wrangler's or Levi's
Oh man! Wonder if they'll ever know
Which are the best brands to go
What to wear on Mars?

Are they going a long, long way
With a great big FCUK?
Space-suit design by Armani
It was him who put up the money
See the idiots wanting more
From Dico and Christian Dior
But equipment is out of bounds
'less it's been labelled by those clowns
It needs rocket fuel and not gas
No, not Diesel, you stupid ass
These designers are quite insane
As they argue and focus on

Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana
Lauren! Who would ever have thought
Best-dressed astronaut
Take a look at the spaceman
In Prada, Versace
Oh man! Wonder if they'll ever know
Which are the best brands to go
What to wear on Mars?

Phil--Looks like there's someone pissed off out there this morning, giving low scores; It wasn't me. Screw em.

Yeah, Phil...screw em. This is another of your caustic, off-centre, blindingly clever parodies (am I the world's biggest brown noser or what?) 555s here

Two comments: Considering how fast fashion wear fads change, chanses are that what they start of with will be as hip as grunge is today once they get back. :-)

The female astronauts should go as scantilly clad as possible and be allowed to join the Miss Universe contest as the first ever Mars contestants. :-)

K1chyd - The problem with the female beauty contest is you can guarantee that the next rocket out would take "Miss Mars" as an instruction ;-)
Must admit, if I liked the original more, I might have continued with another parody idea "Is my Wife on Mars?"... don't know if anybody else wants to pick that one up and run with it, I'm not that much of a Bowie fan, and this was quite hard work, comparitively speaking. Anyway, thanks all :-)
