The Lyrics

This is my 1st Total Recall parody of a song from "Wind & Wuthering." This is the beginning of an album parody based on the Arnold version of Total Recall. This song parody is about when Doug, Arnold's character, argues with his so-called wife, Lori, over his obsession with Mars. This is before Doug would go to work and sneak into a place called Recall. By the way, "There's Something About Mars" is a wordplay on "There's Something About Mary." The funny thing is the "y" is switched with the "s."
I had a dream I was travelling on Mars
Which is a world where the sky is red
I fell down the mountain and my helmet got broke
Both of my eyes were....sucking outta my head
Last night’s dream about Mars
A red planet so damn far
Honey! Oh honey, believe me!

I know that we live on this planet called Earth
But I remember a girl in my red dream
That girl in my dream is nobody at all
I really do not know....why I fell down and screamed
Down the mountains of Mars
A red planet so damn far
Honey! Believe me! Believe me!

Look at the news on our TV
Crime rates are high in the colony
Built on the surface of Mars
Way too many fights in bars
The factions keep on fighting
In stations over revolutions

Honey, where shall we go,
If you want us to go on a trip?
I know that you don’t want me going to Mars
A planet that doesn’t look hip
So you want us to go somewhere on Earth?

You tell me not to get my ass to Mars
You claim that it’s full of lazy mutants
I know those creatures keep killing each other
But I will not be killed....I am a resistant
There’s something about Mars
A red planet so damn far
Honey! Tell me why! Tell me why!

Time for me to go now
To the place of work
I really love you
I’m not such a jerk

I’ll be back home with pay
With a big bonus
I know you really think
Mars is so bogus

But I get the funny feeling
That my dream is not revealing
About what I could be trying
I’d hate to lay on Mars dying

Honey, where shall we go,
If we’re going outta town?
Tell me why we can’t go
To the faraway Martian town
But at least, you are not alone

The entire colony in the red world
Have rival factions in bloody wars
But when the hell is it ever going to end?
There’s too many deaths, but could there be more?
The colony on Mars
A red planet so damn far
Believe me, believe me, believe me....
HONEY!

(While the music ends, Doug says “I’ll be back” in the usual Arnold accent and leaves home to go to work.)
"Laurie" is my grandpa's name, and that's why i chose I put in "honey" instead of "Lori." "Lori" sounds like "Laurie." If I had put in "Lori," I would feel really weird making it sound like I'm typing in my grandpa's name. Anyways, one song parody down, many more to complete the Total Recall album.

I DKTOS, let alone the album, and I have Minimal Recall of the movie (arr!arr!). But the lyrics here are quite stylish, if not altogether funny. Keep that tone throughout and I think you will make a very grand prog opera based on the movie!
