The Lyrics

ORLANDO, Fla.--A NASA astronaut, Lisa Marie Nowak, was accused of trying to kidnap a romantic rival for a space shuttle pilot's affections and was charged with attempted first-degree murder Tuesday. Astronaut Colleen Shipman was romantically involved with astronaut William Oefelein, and when Nowak found out Shipman was flying to Orlando from Houston, she decided to confront her. Nowak raced from Houston to Orlando wearing diapers so she wouldn't have to stop to go to the bathroom. Dressed in a wig and a trench coat, she waited for Shipman's plane to land and then boarded the same airport shuttle bus Shipman took to get to her car. Shipman told police she noticed someone following her, hurried inside the car and locked the doors. Nowak rapped on the window, tried to open the car door and asked for a ride. Shipman refused but rolled down the car window a few inches when Nowak started crying. Nowak then sprayed a chemical into Shipman's car. Shipman drove to the parking lot booth and police were called.
She packed her bags to drive all night
To overpower his "friend."
She had gun, gloves, mace, a knife and wore Depends.
She loved him even though she is a wife.
This woman's a space case. . .
Was on a Shuttle flight.

And I think she's gonna do a long, long time
If the jury a guilty verdict finds.
She loves a man, but she is not alone´┐Ż"
Woe! Astro foe. 'cause the rocket man,
Rocket man's burning with desire for two who've flown.

Marie's plannin' to do her rival in
Because she's mad as hell.
She stalked, wearin' a trench coat and crazy grin.
She tried attack with Mace sprayed from a can.
Now she's in the can and can't speak.
To the rocket man. It's lockup land.

And I think she's gonna do a long, long time.
And I think this loon has got a long-gone mind.

This story could be our first "perfect storm" since the Cheney shooting. T-minus 5 and holding.

So this is what they mean when they call someone a "space cadet"? 555, and incidentally, there have been long been stories of the "zero-gravity club", a/k/a the "100-mile-high club".

I have to admit I like any song by Elton John as he is a true all out musician, your parody was no exception to as it matched almost perfectly to the original tune, I was able to actually sing it karaokee style--that's always a wonderful thing. 555

The soap opera story of that jealous astronaut is yet more proof that psychological testing is not an exact science.
