I could sing his praises for longer than you'll live
I could quote his phrases and fill a book with them
You never woulda guessed it from his humble avatar
But he could grant more wishes than a thousand shooting stars
Yes, he could grant more wishes than a thousand shooting stars

When I had nowhere to sleep he put a blanket over me
And I knew that we would be friends for life
When I had nothin' to eat he brought sandwiches for me
I'll love PB&J till the day I die

Marty had moved into a dorm up on campus
The one where all the cool kids and all the weirdos went
Thank the lords of chaos and the ladies of fate
So did Sam and that's how me and him met

He told us about the five years he spent
In the prison made by the aliens
They had taken him away to that horrible place
On the dark side of Mars when he was a kid

And they called it Planet X
Yeah they called it Planet X
It took him years to figure out exactly where he was kept
'Cause they just called it Planet X

And I must admit that I didn't believe his story
But I believed in him
And he's never let me down and I've never had to worry
About having a true-to-the-end take-a-bullet-for-you best friend

And that September night
Was such an important part of my life
And sometimes new worlds can be made
When two lives collide

There would be good times
And there would be bad, bad times
But now we know we're not alone
We'll face them side by side
