Lyrics

So then you've found your place
You say:
 "I wanna be the first stand-up comedian in outer space"

Foot down in a fantastic bird, fantastic bird
Space is gonna thrill you
Space could even kill you
But space will never love you like I do

Reflecting light down to earth
Oh, yes - and then some humor, too
Just enough to make us know we don't miss you

Have you checked suspension in the fantastic bird, fantastic bird?
Science engulfs you
Science then propels you
But science will never love you like I do

What brings you down to earth?
- Oh, yes, of course -
Yes, yes, it was a lack of applause

Scrap metal for a fantastic bird, fantastic bird
Science propelled you
Science still engulfs you
But science will never love you like I do

'Cos when you land
All you want to hear is my voice:
 "Hello, well done, I love you"
Don't you see?
Don't you see?
