I just found out yesterday that linda goes to mars
Every time I sit and look at pictures of used cars
She'll turn on her radio and sit down in her chair
And look at me across the room, as if I wasn't there

Oh my stars! my linda's gone to mars
Well I wish she wouldn't leave me here alone
Oh my stars! my linda's gone to mars
Well, I wonder if she'd bring me something home.

Something, somewhere, somehow took my linda by the hand
And secretly decoded our sacred wedding band
For when the moon shines down up on our happy, humble home
Her inner space gets tortured by some outer space unknown.

Repeat chorus:

Now I ain't seen no saucers 'cept the ones upon the shelf
And if I ever seen one I'd keep it to myself
For if there's life out there somewhere beyond this life on earth
Then linda must have gone out there and got her money's worth.

Repeat chorus:

Yeah, I wonder if she'd bring me something home.

    General CommentCountry songs are often about a cheating spouse. This song came out in 1993 - the book "Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars" came out in 1992. My guess is that the author is saying that he ignored his wife (staring at used cars) so she had an affair. He doesn't seem to be too terribly upset about it. He indicates that he might have an affair too, but if he does "he'll keep it to himself". All in all, a pretty sad country song along the same lines as "Your Cheatin' Heart" but funny because it's in "code".
