The Lyrics

This is my 3rd Total Recall parody of a song from "Wind & Wuthering." This takes place after the part where Douglas Quaid is told to get his ass to Mars. Though, there is no scene of the film where Douglas enters a spaceship on Earth. If this song parody comes to life, Douglas would be singing it in front of a fake spaceship on Broadway.
At last, I lost the bad guys
I removed the red ball from my skull
I’m going to Mars and I won’t die
This big spaceship is no bull

I’ve been on the run for two hours
Since I left my so-called wife behind
Yes, I’ll take this ship to blast off to Mars
Though, I am not a Martian kind

I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
By blasting off to space on my own way to Mars
If this trip is missed....I will be pissed

I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
Right outta this Earth to start my trip
With my own spaceship
But I will....I will be back

Later, I will open my mind
To figure what treasure hides behind
It could be beneath the surface of Mars
Maybe an unusual kind

I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
By traveling my own way to Mars
And I could stay there for just two weeks
Right near the red peaks

I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
By leaving this world that has so much seawater
But I will be back....I’ll be back

The girl in my dreams could be real
She could be in the Mars colony
That is why I have to go to Mars
That girl could be a help to me

I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
By blasting to space....on my way to Mars
I’ll, I’ll take the old-fashioned way
By flying to Mars for a mission
To find what’s on my mind, but I will....
I will soon be back
In case you've been reading the lyrics, a few statements try to say the famous Arnold catchphrase "I'll be back." That will remind you that "I'll be back" here to release six more Total Recall parodies to complete the album, one at a time.
