  • Only came outside to watch the nightfall with the rain
    I heard you making patterns rhyme
    Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is planet Earth you're looking at planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet Earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is planet Earth you're looking at planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop This is planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop Calling planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop Looking at planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop This is planet Earth Writer/s: Andy Taylor, Fernando Gonzales De Canales, Jaime Martinez Stinus, Javier Gurruchaga Iriarte, John Taylor, Luis Alberto De Cuenca Y Prado, Nick Rhodes, Roger Taylor, Simon Le Bon
