The Plastic Spacemen



regret to announce that they are assuming control of the Earth with their catchy slice of electro-bubblegum

   
The Plastic Spacemen
Battle Hymn


An invasion six months in the making, using the most advanced musical techniques in the Universe, as well as a slide-rule, five rubber bands and some parts from a broken servo-rocket engine.

Just a simple polymer, that’s what you thought
That comes with that packet of cornflakes you bought
A harmless little toy that couldn’t hurt a nit
Except if you accidentally swallowed it

Chorus:
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks






Over the years our sentience has grown
And now a cornflakes packet no longer feels like home
All those months living without light
Made us angry we’re ready to fight


Victory is ours, the taste is so sweet
We’ll store you away and use you as meat
We’ll be kings of the world and all will be ours
We’ll rule like space-gods while the rest of you cowers






Chorus:
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks


So get out your bowl, get out your spoon
Our moment of triumph is coming soon
Out with the milk, you want sugar on top
You’ll get your biggest ever snap, crackle and pop





Human scum shall taste defeat
All is ready our plans are complete
You’re big and dumb and carbon-based
You haven’t a chance you’re right off the pace

Chorus:
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks
We’re the plastic spacemen, hiding in your cornflakes
Gonna take the world over, just as soon as dawn breaks





Overnight we shall feed on the flakes
And multiply rapidly, that’s all it takes
When you open up the pack
Out we’ll explode and eat you as a snack





Record companies and mobile ring-tone companies should welcome their new spacemen overlords and contact them immediately,
before some other toadies curry favour and become the favoured business lackies.
