Well, Almost No Room

(We're off to the Moon for the Weekend)


Farewell to the Creeks

Temperance Union
MIDI
The words to this song are by Kay Shapero and Lee Gold. It can be sung to two different traditional tunes, "Farewell to the Creeks" (this is the pipe tune that "Banks of Sicily" is based off of) or "Temperance Union". The lyrics can also be found on Kay's website, along with the "Childish Ballads" a collection of traditional kid favorites. Check them out!

Dad cycled the airlock, and Mom pulled it to,
Then looked at her hand which was covered with goo.
So that's where my chewing gum disappeared to!
We're off to the Moon for the weekend.



Chorus for "Farewell to the Creeks":
So fare you well, green grass and gravity,
We won't be back til Sunday night.
We left kitty home, 'cause there's no room to swing her
We're off to the Moon for the weekend.




Chorus for "Temperance Union":
Hurray, hurray for Zero-G
For Zero-G, for Zero-G
Hurray, hurray for Zero-G
We're off to the Moon for the weekend!


While making a sandwich my brother has found
That untethered honey jars wander around.
The galley is now a nice warm sticky brown...
We're off to the Moon for the weekend.

Chorus

My sister revised the computer and we
Do not seem to be where they want us to be.
Two shuttles just missed us. Whoops, no make that three!
We're off to the Moon for the weekend.

Chorus

To add to the noise, Baby's started to cry.
I don't like the look Mommy has in her eye.
And Daddy is swearing that next time they'll buy
A Spaceship with No Room for Children!
