Cruisin’ the Galaxy

(Honorable Mention (read: Last Place) in Denvention’s Contest)

Deimos and Phobos, ooo I raise a toast to
Perseid, Leonid they’re so very splendid
Orion, defyin’ gravity and flyin’

Part of Ursa Minor, is the north star Polaris
That’s what we use to guide our steps, as we journey forth
Explore the Milky Way, see the comets looping round and round
Shoemaker-Levy Nine, felt a tug, had its orbit decay, Into Jupiter

Lyra and Vega, ooo I am amazed at
Perseid, Leonid they’re so very splendid
Orion, defyin’ gravity and flyin’

Ooo let’s find that asteroid
Worried about impact by NEO?
No need to be annoyed – Missile launch; it’s destroyed

To Betelgeuse, nova lettin’ loose

Hop to Ganymede; then to Io we’ll proceed
If we find E.T., our explorations will succeed
Fly through Saturn’s rings, find lots of frozen things
View Dwarf Ceres, Seven Sisters, the Pleiades
Cruisin’ the Galaxy

Venus, Uranus, ooo I wanna gaze at
Perseid, Leonid they’re so very splendid
Orion, defyin’ gravity and flyin’

Ooo let’s find that asteroid
Worried about impact by NEO?
No need to be annoyed – Missile launch; it’s destroyed

Pluto, wow, it’s not a planet now

Orion Nebula, part of the great constellation
book your space vacation, and get away from it all
What’s your destination?

Alpha Centauri, ooo see the glory of
Perseid, Leonid they’re so very splendid
Orion, defyin’ gravity and flyin’

Ooo let’s find that asteroid
Worried about impact by NEO?
No need to be annoyed – Missile launch; it’s destroyed

Deimos and Phobos, ooo I raise a toast to
Perseid, Leonid they’re so very splendid
Orion, defyin’ gravity and flyin’
