Today at school my teacher said,
I wonder what you’ll be?
When time has passed and you’ve grown up,
And the world is yours to see.
Right then and there I stood straight up,
And looked her in the face,
And said with pride and confidence,
I plan to live in space.
Like pirates of so long ago,
My ship will take me far,
Around the moon and back again,
And to a distant star.
So when you talk about the world,
And say it’s yours to see,
I believe I’ll have the greatest view,
Upon the cosmic sea.
