OOC: Space Girl


My Mama told me I should never venture into space
But I did, I did, I did
She said no Terran girl could trust the Martian race
But I did, I did, I did
A rocket pilot asked me on a voyage to go
And I was so romantic I couldn't say no
that he was just a servo robot how was I to know?
But I did, I did, I did
She told me never venture out among the asteroids
But I did, I did, I did
She said the milky way was something to avoid
But I did, I did, I did
She said that venus was too hot and saturn not much fun
And bug-eyed monsters tended to be just a trifle dumb
She said i'd need a blaster and I'd need a freezer gun
And I did, I did, I did.
My mama told me never trust a space engineer
But I did, I did, I did.
She said freefall and superdrive would surely cost me dear
And they did, they did, they did.
I've been as far in hyperspace as anybody can
I've travelled through the timewarp in a cycloplan
They say a gal must travel for to find her superman
And I did, I did, I did.
(E. MacColl)
