Rocket Trip - Jackie Lowell

Rocket Trip

Jackie Lowell

(J. Elliot, BANDBOX 266, 1961)

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
I'm gonna take a trip on a rocketship
I'm gonna blast outta here about noon
To get away from it all
I'm gonna have a ball on the backside of the moon
I'm gonna build a shack
I ain't a-comin' back to the place I came from
Well, it's just like this
I'll either hit or miss, and have a hard time on the sun

Either way it'll be, you can take it from me
I'm gonna have a real big time
I'm on a one way track, I ain't a-comin' back
'Cause I'm a-goin' to the end of the line
Now here's a tip, why I'm takin' this trip
I wanna get satisfied
I wanna live it up, I wanna rock it up
And get out of this world alive

I'm gonna take a trip on a rocketship
I'm gonna blast outta here about noon
To get away from it all
I'm gonna have a ball on the backside of the moon
I'm gonna build a shack
I ain't a-comin' back to the place I came from
Well, it's just like this
I'll either hit or miss, and have a hard time on the sun

Either way it'll be, you can take it from me
I'm gonna have a real big time
I'm on a one way track, I ain't a-comin' back
'Cause I'm a-goin' to the end of the line
Now here's a tip, why I'm takin' this trip
I wanna get satisfied
I wanna live it up, I wanna rock it up
And get out of this world alive
