I Want to be an Astronaut

**We've always been very interested in outer space, which makes it pretty surprising that we didn't have a song about space before this. I started writing this while I was walking back from class one day. I sang what I had for Bob and we eventually finished it together. Dave recorded the guitar solo on the album.**

I wanna go to outer space (x2)

I could float around with a smile on my face

And no one would even care at all

 

I wanna take a rocket to the sun (x2)

I would get a tan and it would be real fun

And no one would ever care at all

 

Donít you think that itíd be great

If we wouldnít suffocate outside the atmosphere?

Thereís nothing bad about space

Itís the most exciting place outside the Southern Tier

 

I wanna ride a shooting star (x2)

I would hold on tight and we would go real far

And no one would even care at all

 

I wanna venture to the moon

It wouldnít take too long and I would get there soon

And no one would even care at all

 

Donít you think that itíd be great

If we wouldnít suffocate outside the atmosphere?

Thereís nothing bad about space

Itís the most exciting place outside the Southern Tier

 

I wanna be an astronaut

Thatís the job for me

I wanna be an astronaut

Thatís what I wanna be
