I want to be a space man Way up in the sky In a tiny little capsule Where I can bide my time Like a robomatic rocketboy Who journeys back into the stars To hang with all the angels Somewhere out beyond Mars.
Branded, stranded, but not alone Sent here, light-years, From my home 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 But there's so much work Left to be done Before we fly into the sun
Chorus I don't belong here Feel like I've come from outer space I don't belong here I'm only visiting this place
Listen for a transmission My radar pointed at the sun Do my best to do my duty TIll the day that he comes
Come in, come in Commander Cosmo May day Mission Command I'm a planetary pilgrim More than a mortal man
Elroy, spaceboy, son of a jet, Jedi's, moonpies, spacecadet 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 But there's much work Left to be done Before we fly into the sun Don't need a rocketship For me to fly My wings are waiting for me Heavenly home, up in the sky There's no place that I'd Rather be
When I've carried out my mission And my work on Earth is done Eternal life's fruition Will be given to me by God's only son
