An Artist's depiction of Martian Girl in the supermarket

A song dedicated to a creature who is both Martian and Girl: Martian Girl, who hails from Planet V. The song chronicles young love centered around a carnivorous alien who has a preoccupation with meat and who has stolen the heart of the singer, though not in a literal sense. She is apparently humanoid in appearance, though there are many traits that she does not share with a normal human such as her green skin, big orange eyes, and blue hair. Martian Girl also apparently does not have a human sense of modesty, as in all versions of the song about her, she wears nothing but silver underwear.

This song is one of three songs (the others being Idiot Box and Playdough (secret song)) to appear both on The Return of the Aquabats! and The Fury of the Aquabats!. While the most popular, and more frequently performed, version is the one from The Fury, Cadets of Old and Young alike still enjoy the older version with its trombone slides and slightly different chord resolution.

In different versions of the mythology, Martian Girl has appeared in a band of three Martians who were listed as allies on the old version of The Aquabats' website. The band was called Planet V, making Martian Girl from Planet V (The Band).


Appearance in The Aquabats in Color! Edit

The classic segments Last Week and Next Week of the 1999 attempt at creating an Aquabats Television show, The Aquabats in Color!, feature a band of Martian Girl and two other girls from Planet V playing a show for The Kids near a mountain lake that is revealed to contain a large Godzilla-esque lizard monster which ruins the beach-side show. Their role is minimal, but a sample of the music played by the band, Planet V, can be heard during their screen time. Unlike the version of Martian Girl that appears on both albums, this version of Martian Girl wears more than silver underwear, making her appear much more adapted to human customs.

LyricsEdit

Here's a story that must be told
It's kinda new, not very old
About a female Martian with a wild grin
Big orange eyes and green skin
Blue was her hair
She came from way up there
She wore silver underwear
Almost naked but she didn't care

(Chorus)

Why, oh why, did she come from Planet V?
I dont know wo wo wo
Martian girl from Planet V
Will you marry me?
Wo wo wo wo wo
She came from outer space
She came to see
If earth was good
Wo wo wo wo wo
In the supermarket she got distracted
In the meat department
Wo wo wo wo wo
She's looking at me
She's looking hungry
Think she's gonna eat me!
Wo wo wo wo wo
Well, She's not a bird
She's not a plane
She's got green blood
Pumping through her veins.
Saw a light in the sky
And then I found her
Now I'm having my own close encounter
She smiled at me as she fixed her hair
And then she kissed me
Right then and there
I started bleeding,
Thats the weirdest part
'cause this alien's teeth were razor sharp!

(Chorus)

Whoa, oh baby, aw yeah
What a wacky alien she was
I'll tell you why, its just because
She had an appetite that couldn't be beat
She came from space to eat people meat
I guess I didn't taste good anyway
'cause when she kissed me,
She flew away!

(Chorus)

Why oh why did she come from Planet V?
Well now we know wo wo wo

(Chorus)

LyricsEdit

Well, Here's a story that must be told
It's kinda new, not very old
About a female Martian with a wild grin,
Big orange eyes, and green skin
Blue was her hair
She came from way up there
She wore silver underwear
Almost naked but she didn't care

(Chorus)

Why oh, why did she come from
Planet V?
I dont know wo wo wo
Martian girl from planet v
Will you marry me?
Wo wo wo wo wo
She came from outer space
She came to see
If earth was good
Wo wo wo wo wo
Well, She's not a bird
She's not a plane
She's got green blood
Pumping through her veins.
She smiled at me
That's the weirdest part
'cause this aliens teeth were razor sharp!

(Chorus)

In the supermarket she got distracted
In the meat department
Wo wo wo wo wo
She's looking at me
She's looking hungry
Think shes gonna eat me!
Wo wo wo wo wo
Well, What a wacky, nutty, alien she was
I'll tell you why kids, it's just because
She had an appetite that couldn't be beat
She came from space to eat people meat
I guess I didn't taste good anyway
'cause when she kissed me,
She flew away!

(Chorus)

OkHandSign
This is a hand signal you do at a live show during the "Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo." It is made by making a cicle with your index finger and your thumb, and sticking up your middle, ring, and pinky fingers.
The up fingers are the 'W' and the circle is 'O'. You rotate your hand 180 degrees every "Wo."
