If he was from Venus, would he feed us with a spoon?
If he was from Mars, then that'd be cool
Standing right on campus, would he stamp us in a file?
Hangin' down in Memphis all the while

And children by the million sing for Alex Chilton
When he comes 'round
They sing, "I'm in love
What's that song?
Yeah, I'm in love, with that song"

So we will rape and pillage in a village of his choice
Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice
Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face
Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place

And children by the million sing for Alex Chilton
When he comes 'round and 'round
They sing, "I'm in love
What's that song?
Oh, I'm in love, with that song?

I never travel far
Without a little big star

Runnin' 'round the house, Mickey Mouse and tarot cards
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on
And if he was from Venus, would he meet us on the moon?
If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool, babe

And children by the million wait for Alex Chilton
And come around 'round
They sing, "I'm in love what's that song?
I'm in love, with that song
I'm in love, what's that song?
Yeah, I'm in love, with that song?

Oh
Come on
