Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you today
This incredibly unusual aeronautic display
The vehicle in front of you has been uniquely designed
To leave our planetary system behind
In fact, in only a matter of hours
You’ll be out of reach of this sun of ours
Sir and Madam, ensure your seatbelts are tight
For you are about to travel at the speed of light
Has light got a texture? You betcha! It’s coarse
And this craft is designed to hook into it of course
Please don’t shudder when we start to beam
Consider it a canoe upon a stream
There are some rapids around the asteroid belt
Then we turn left at Jupiter and we’ll be at full pelt
Sit back and relax, we’ll be serving free beers
We land in Andromeda in one million years
