  1. From the intro to Jean-Michel Basquiat! Love this video! What a timeless classic. They came and did what they were suppose to and went to another dimension! How cool is that? What a blessing. The very first rap song was by a white woman! LOL

    Toe to toe

    Dancing very close

    Barely breathing

    Almost comatose

    Wall to wall

    People hypnotized

    And they're stepping lightly

    Hang each night in Rapture

    Back to back


    Spineless movement

    And a wild attack

    Face to face

    Sadly solitude

    And it's finger popping

    Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture

    Fab Five Freddie told me everybody's high

    DJ's spinnin' are savin' my mind

    Flash is fast, Flash is cool

    Francois sez fas, Flashe' no do

    And you don't stop, sure shot

    Go out to the parking lot

    And you get in your car and you drive real far

    And you drive all night and then you see a light

    And it comes right down and lands on the ground

    And out comes a man from Mars

    And you try to run but he's got a gun

    And he shoots you dead and he eats your head

    And then you're in the man from Mars

    You go out at night, eatin' cars

    You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too

    Mercury's and Subaru's

    And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars

    Then, when there's no more cars

    You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet

    Face to face, dance cheek to cheek

    One to one, man to man

    Dance toe too toe

    Don't move to slow, 'cause the man from Mars

    Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars

    Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall

    He's gonna eat 'em all

    Rapture, be pure

    Take a tour, through the sewer

    Don't strain your brain, paint a train

    You'll be singin' in the rain

    I said don't stop, to punk rock

    Well now you see what you wanna be

    Just have your party on TV

    'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars when the TV's on

    And now he's gone back up to space

    Where he won't have a hassle with the human race

    And you hip-hop, and you don't stop

    Just blast off, sure shot

    'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars

    And now he only eats guitars, get up!

  3. Go ahead Debra!!! This song NEVER went as far as it should have!!! Lord, this was the true confusion of the eighties!!! Top coat and tails meets punk rap jazz!!!
