Lyrics

Satellite's gone

Up to the skies Things like that drive me Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while I like to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of

Satellite's gone Way up to Mars Soon it will be filled With parking cars

I watch it for a little while I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of

I've been told that you've been bold With Harry, Mark and John Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to Thursday With Harry, Mark and John

Satellite's gone Up to the skies Things like that drive me Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love
