Far from our solar system
In the outer reaches of space
There is a planet where everything is opposite
And is a very peculiar place.
Drivers take the fuel out of cars
And cooks unpeel potatoes, I'm told
Your food goes in the oven
And comes out nice and cold.
Dishwashers work very hard
Only to give you a dirty dish
And players enter the stadium yard
When the match is about to finish.
You know when something bad happens
People laugh and don't cry
Every day they grow shorter
And greet you by saying, 'Goodbye.'
