Little Spaceman

(Bob Nolan)

 

(You are listening to the song as performed by Dave Bourne)

 

Goodnight, little spaceman, on your way,

Watch out for the shooting stars.

It’s a four-point-nine until takeoff time.

Away you go

With a blast off full to the gravity pull.

Away you go!

 

All the way up there in the stratosphere air, go sailing.

I can follow your flight by the rocketing light you’re trailing.

 

Watch out, little spaceman, check your course

On the calculate freefall run

 Through the earthbound orb like a satellite sword

And dream and dream

 Of a starlit ride with the universe guide

And dream and dream

 Of a starlit ride with the universe guide,

And dream and dream.

 

Good night, little spaceman, off to bed.

(Whoop! Pardon that earthly phrase.)

I forgot your bed was a meteorite sled.

Away you go!

On your nightly trip in your interworld ship,

Away you go!

 

Keep your pentylene feed up to all of that speed of soaring

Like a fiery force in a solarly course, go roaring.

 

Watch out, little spaceman, once again

It’s a freefall, run back home.

How I wish that I were a part of your sky

Of thrill, I will

For perhaps someday in a magical way,

I will! I will!

For perhaps someday in a magical way,

I will! I will!
