           D                                    G              D
There are friends I see too seldom, there's so much I want to do
         C                                        D
See the sights and make strange music there, and better yet, with you
         D                              Bm             G
So I'll meet you in two weeks, in that exotic foreign clime
        D              Bm    Am  D   G D
If the last spaceship leaves on time.

           D                            G 
   If the ship's engines blaze without holds or delays--
             C           G           D
   Why that boat could amaze in its prime!--
            D                      C      G
   Fortune smiles on strays and audacity pays
           D              Bm    Am  D   G D
   If the last spaceship leaves on time!

In the rocket's mighty roar I hear the future's siren call,
From its earliest beginnings I have learned about it all
It's my last big chance to see it, giving up would be a crime--
If the last spaceship leaves on time.

So I'm hazarding adventure, though its nature does depend,
On the luck that follows travelers, not always as a friend,
But I'll dare the deal of fortune, even put it all in rhyme--
If the last spaceship leaves on time.
