David wrote this song in 1992 when there was a lot going on related to the 500th anniversary of Columbus' voyage.  He was thinking about what it would be like to "be discovered."

One day - some strangers came to Jaimie's door;
    stranger than he'd seen before,
    with antennas on their heads.
They said - that they came all the way from Mars;
    they came here in their spaceship cars,     
    which looked like great big beds.
They came to prove to all the Martians,
that the universe was really curved (not round!)
They were looking for a short-cut to Pluto
and here is what they found!

Jaimie - was polite and said hello,
    he didn't tell them they should go
    back to where they came from.
The Martians - said "We have found Pluto.
    We are smart and so we know
    exactly where we've come."
Jaimie tried to tell them that they were wrong;
he'd always called the Earth his home
But they wouldn't listen, they called him primative;
and then they told him he would have to go.

Jaimie - didn't really want to fight;
    they were so sure they were right
    that Pluto was what they'd found.
So he - sat down on his front porch step
    and tried to figure how the heck
    he could turn this thing around.
Jaimie remembered how the Indians
believed that the Earth was here to share.
We should all live together peacefully
upon this little planet, so fair.

Jaimie - took the Martians by the hand;
    he explained that there was land
    enough for everyone.
They learned - that they could get along;
    play some games and sing some songs
    and have a lot of fun, and have a lot of fun,
    so they had a lot of fun!
