Never running from a real fight
She's the one called

Sailor Moon.

She's the one can make the sun begin to glow
The mailman, the grocer, and even school kids know
It's worth their while to stop and watch that smile

Well you all may think my story
Is more fiction than it's fact
But believe it or not, my Mother dear
Decided she'd come back
As a car

Where things are poppin' the Philadelphia way
