The Invaders

They called us the Invaders, as though we came from another world
And a man from immigration
Shouted out “Hey Punk you a boy or a girl”
“Hey tutti fruitti give us a kiss,” the custom man proclaimed
’Cos the world as he knew it turned upside down and things would
never be the same
The day the Invaders came

They called us the invaders, like creatures from the black lagoon
Said that we were dangerous, like space invaders from the moon
We just came to see the world and entertain America
We just came to get a break not to turn into enemies of the State
’Cos the world as he know it turned upside down and things would
never be the same
The day the Invaders came

They called us illegal aliens as though we were poncing off the state
And as we walked through immigration
They heard me speak and shouted out “You wait”
Hey buddy get back in the line, his eyes were full of hate
’Cos the world as he knew it turned upside down and things would
never be the same
The day the Invaders came

They called us the Invaders like barbarians full of hate
Said that we were dangerous, like warriors sent to pillage and rape
We all dance to a different tune, they didn’t like my attitude
Cultures clash like chalk and cheese,
misunderstood in the land of the free
’Cos the world as he knew it turned upside down and things would
never be the same
The day the Invaders came
Yes the world as we knew it turned upside down and things will
never be the same
The day the invaders came
