Circle Sidewalk 2 Mars

I was wrong, there's cars on Mars, but it's too late I'm there.
There are even Martian bears!
I'm being chased by one right now, and if it catches me, "POW! POW!"
It's driving a car and it's getting quite dark.
I wish I was back on Earth, back to the planet of my birth.
But it's too late now, I'm Martian bear bait!!!
