Harry Nilsson – Spaceman
Lyrics

Bang, bang, shoot ’em up destiny
Bang, bang, shoot ’em up to the moon
Bang, bang, shoot ’em up one, two, three (one, two, three, four)

I wanted to be a spaceman, that’s what I wanted to be
But now that I am a spaceman
Nobody cares about me
Hey, Mother Earth, won’t’cha bring me back down safely to the sea?
Around and around and around and around is all she ever say to me

I wanted to make a good run, I wanted to go to the moon
I knew that it had to be fun
I told ’em to send me real soon
I wanted to be a spaceman, I wanted to be it so bad
But now that I am a spaceman I’d rather be back on the pad

Hey, Mother Earth, won’t’cha bring me back down safely to the sea?
Around and around and around and around is just a lot of lunacy (yeah)
(Yeah)

‘Round and around and around and around and around (so bring me back down)
‘Round and around and around and around and around, safe on the ground

Hey, Mother Earth, better bring me back down safely to the sea
But around and around and around and around is all she ever say to me, yeah

You know I wanted to be a spaceman
That’s what I wanted to be
But now that I am a spaceman nobody cares about me
Say hey, you Mother Earth, you better bring me back down
I’ve taken just as much as I can
Around and around and around and around is the problem of a spaceman
