OMC - How Bizarre

Brother Pele's in the back, sweet singers in the front
Cruising down the freeway in the hot, hot sun
Suddenly red blue lights flash us from behind
Loud voice boming " please step out onto the line"

Pele breathes words of comfort, Seena just hides her eyes
Policeman taps his shades, Is that a chevy 69?

How bizarre, how bizarre, how bizarre

Destination unknown, as we pull in for some gas
A freshly pasted poster reveals a smile from the pack

Elephants and acrobats, lions next monkey
Pele speaks righteous, Sister seena says funky

How bizarre, how bizarre, how bizarre

Ooh baby, (ooh baby), it's making me crazy, (it's making me crazy)
Everytime I look around, (look around)
Everytime I look around, everytime i look around
It's in my face

Ringmaster steps up, says the elephants left town
People jump and jive, and the clowns inch back around
T.V. news and cameras, there's choppers in the sky
Marines, police, reporters, ask the where, for and why

Pele yells "we're outta here", Seena says "right on"
Make your moves and starting grooves, before they knew we're gone
Jump into the chevy, headed for big lights,
Wanna know the rest? Hey, buy the rights

How bizarre, how bizarre, how bizarre

Refrain (3x)

"How Bizarre" is a song written and performed by New Zealand musical group OMC. It was released in December 1995 as the lead single from their only album of the same name and went on to top the charts of at least five countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand. Outside New Zealand, OMC is generally considered a one-hit wonder. They had a further few successful singles in New Zealand, including "On the Run" and "Land of Plenty". A music video was released to help promote the single. The video has lead singer Pauly Fuemana driving a 1968 Chevrolet Impala. It also pictures him dancing, rapping, throwing around money and breathing fire. The video was directed by Lee Baker and was released very late in 1995, just before "How Bizarre" went to number one in New Zealand. Shot on a soundstage in Ponsonby and at Ellerslie Racecourse for a budget of $7,000 from NZ On Air, it was shown on US networks about 15,000 times in 1997 and 1998. Besides Pauly, it features backing vocalist Sina Saipaia, and a Filipino man named Hill who stood in for Brother Pele.
