Dressed up for a big date
Like Halloween day but it was fourth of July now
A car crash with a suitcase and a painted face
She was one of a kind

She wears a plastic crown like Cinderella
And roller skates in bed
Crash rides the greyhound from his hometown
When he comes around 'cause they don't let him drive now
Mixed up as a milkshake

But make no mistake
They're shooting for the stars

You and me
We're invincible, together
We can be so tragical, whatever

Dressed up just like Ziggy but he couldn't play guitar
Captain crash and the beauty queen from mars
Share a toothpick, trading lipstick
Watching traffic for days at the diner
Holding hands, making big plans
Playing superman, he was wearing eyeliner
Another local legend and his longtime lucky charm

You and me
We're invincible, together
We can be so tragical, whatever
Dressed up just like ziggy but he couldn't play guitar

Captain crash and the beauty queen from mars
They're drunk on love as you can get
Getting high on lust and cigarettes
Living life with no regrets
At least they're gonna try, to fly

You and me
We've invincible, together
We can be so tragical, whatever

We're Sid and Nancy
Fred and ginger
Clyde and Bonnie
Liz and Richard
Kurt and Courtney
Bacall and Bogie
Joltin' Joe and Ms. Monroe
Here's captain crash and the beauty queen from mars

    General CommentWhen it says "They were shooting for the stars" I'm pretty sure it's "Crash is looking like a star", too.

    I love this song, it expresses some of my views on life and also has a funky tune which is rather addictive to listen to. "Yooouu aaand mee, we're invincibleee, togetherrr!" Yeah I piss off my class mates lol.

    Anyway I think this is partly metaphoric. But it can be literal. I've had relationships like this. Crash & The Queen are both a bit misunderstood is all. They're just doing what they want rather than trying to "fit in", with the "normal" people. And then when they meet, fall in love, it's like BAM. They created an amazing story to tell. They're a bit, in want of a better word, "weird". But this is o-to-the-k. They also love each other.

    I don't think it's about sexuality, "The Beauty Queen From Mars" for me just represents a girl. Who is beautiful. A bit "odd". Hence, "From Mars". But deep down she's a beautiful queen. Whether she thinks so or not.

    Crash, to me, represents a guy from the 70's, or 80's maybe. Or perhaps it's about them living like it's the 70's or 80's, whereas it's not. (This song was released 2000?) And this might be why the song represents them as different. Regretfully, I was born far too late for my liking, and living in the wrong generation, I didn't get to enjoy live through the 80's. But Crash's just a guy who is doing what he wants - wearing eyeliner, "playing superman", wearing lipstick. They also "share a toothpick", which to me shows that they are very close in a really cute kind of way.

    Dressed up for a big date (Crash and the Queen are going to a first date together.)
    Like Halloween day (They're a bit eccentric - dressed up crazy as if it's Halloween.) but it was Fourth of July now (...But it's an ordinary day.)
    A car crash (She's looking like a mess. In a good way, though.) with a suitcase (carrying a suitcase, as cool as she is, i assume.) and a painted face (a lot of heavy make up / crazy make up.)
    She was one of a kind (Well, she was UNIQUE.)
    She wears a plastic crown like Cinderella (comparing to the fairytale, of course, maybe the fact that her royalty is not legitimate. her imagination.)
    And roller skates in bed (who doesn't wear rollerskates in bed? she must like them. again reference to the 70's theme.)

    Because the lyrics make examples of Crash & The Queen, (the names towards the end of the song), this leads me to believe they represent noone in particular. Maybe it's just an example of when two crazy people fall in love. Also, because of the names, it shows that all these people are weird in their own way. Not literally everything it says in the song.

    Another reason I believe it's not about sexuality it the names. If it was about two gays, wouldn't it give examples of gay couples, not straight ones?

    THis has been long... Lol. And Bon Jovi has never "copyed" anyone, because they are kind of like the start of it all. But similarities can be put down to coincedence. May I take this opportunity to say ILY BON JOVI, Rock on <3
