The Lyrics

the shuttle miss america was shining like a brand new GM car
and I'm gonna give'er all the throttle, through the space we'll roar
I'll be a spaceman, spaceman,
going up to see,
just like a spaceman spaceman
watching those on earth waving their families..
and I will be their spaceman

my travelling companion is nine years old
he is a a monkey in his space carriage
I have reason to believe
bananas are his needs a spaceman

they count down, they tell me that we're gone
(as if I didn't know that)
as if I didn't have my own head
as if I'd never noticed
the way the air rushed by my flat forehead
and I thought cruising up,
is like a window on the world
everybody has the flags unfurled
everybody waves as we go

I'll be a spaceman, spaceman,
going up to see,
just like a spaceman spaceman
watching those on earth waving their families..
and I will be their spaceman

and my travelling companion
says ooks and eeks in rockets
I need to save my empties
and I have reason to believe
we both will be received as spacemen

there's a russian in the skylab,
says her name is Olga Trampoleen
and sometimes when we're kissing, playing,
and fumbling in weightless, I say..
oh this is what you mean?
she just loves bouncing on a spaceman
and I thought cruising up,
is like a window on the world
everybody has the flags unfurled
everybody waves as we go

a spaceman, a spaceman,
I'll be a spaceman
for reasons I cannot explain
there's some part of me that wants to be a spaceman
and I may be obliged to defend,
my trip as it is ending
maybe there's no landing plans now...
but I have a reason to believe
I will be well received
a spaceman
