Blast -off into space, in my big spacecraft.
I look out at the Earth as it disappears below.
Traveling through the solar system
Planets passing by, the instrument panel’s lights
Are like the stars in the sky.
Oh, I am a spaceman,
And I travel from planet to planet,
Oh I am a spacemen,
And I live in the Milky Way!
I took a left turn at Mars,
And landed on Saturn’s rings
I look back at the Earth’s bright glow,
It seems so far away!
I wonder sometimes about space.
And life as an astronaut!
But I know I’ll be on my way back home,
Very soon!! – CH.
