"Lovely Day" as written by Ronald/richie Lapread and Clarence Scarborough....
At the station, at the border an aggression to the exterior law and order
Upward plantation
I remember your red dress
Like a field full o' poppy

You were making me dreamy
Stunned by a love got to do what your head says
Could not let it stop me
They got one leaving today

And it's going away
Got my feet in the stirrup
It can be kind of banal
But I dream of your red dress

Riding down these dry canals
Oh baby it's not Europe
But I'm sending you money
I'm sending you lots of money

So you can buy a ticket
You will be my Martian honey all the day
They got one leaving today
And it's going away.

    General CommentIts about a guy who travels to Mars, but its so desolate and boring there that all he can do is think about his girl and being with her again, so hes sending her money to come live with him on Mars.

    General CommentI always (still do, actually) thought the line was "Thank God we're leaving today," like they just want the hell out of wherever. Mexico, it sounds like, but Puerto Rico probably, knowing Frank Black.

    General CommentSounds like he's talking about a long distance relationship. Mars being a metaphor maybe
