The Lyrics

Well, you wonder why we always dress in black
why you never see bright colours on our back
and why our names are letters, just like a J or K
There's a reason for the way the things might be

We wear the black for anonymity
we keep the secrets men weren't meant to see
we take care of the aliens who are stranded here on Earth
from distant stars - or who were here from birth

We wear it for the gadgets that we use
Strange new technology to defuse
We keep those things from wrong hands, from punks and felonies
They're all too dangerous for you and me -

We wear the black 'cause diplomats are we
We keep the peace for entire galaxy
We're interstellar UN and we try to prevent wars
whether Daleks or the Emperors or Borgs -

We wear it for those peaceful aliens
Hardworking, honest earthly denizens
who came on this planet for safe refugee
Don't you think they could be just like you or me?

We wear it 'cause we no more have a past
Our suits are those which meant to be our last
And if you ever meet us and get to see our eyes
I'm sorry - but we'll have to neuralyze -

Well, there're things that should quite never be revealed
And things which are too dangerous to see
But till we make encounter we can no more deny
you never will see us to wear the white -

Oh, we'd love to wear the rainbow every day
Pretend to world that everything's okay
and we're alone in galaxy and we are well on track
But it aint so - thus we are Men In Black!

Not sure they'd want to "wear the rainbow", given the meaning that "rainbow" has taken on, at least in the US, but clever parody of an entertaining movie. Good choice and use of OS. Beaming Fives at you with my Ronald Ray-Gun.

Brings new meaning to the designation "Illegal Alien". ;D
