I’ll be travelling through space very soon,
Right up there with the stars and the moon.
Earth’s a wonderful place
When you view it from space.
Yes, I’ll be flying through space very soon.
They’ll all scream with delight as I fly -
As I hurtle myself through the sky.
When I end all my days
In a breathtaking blaze,
I’ll screech as I wish them goodbye.
I’ll shoot up to the heavens at night,
Then I’ll light up the sky very bright.
I’ll hear the 'oohs' and the 'aaahs'
As I head for the stars.
What a truly spectacular sight!
I’ll impress everyone with my colours,
With my brilliant sisters and brothers.
As I shoot through the night
As a vision of light
I’ll surely outshine all the others.
My journey’s at last in my sight.
For I’m now awaiting my flight.
Let me rocket away
In a dazzling display
As I wish all you children goodnight.
