[Verse 1]
Countdown is commencing
Pretty soon I'll be saying, "Goodbye Earth"
A rocket ride on a bucking bronc
At seventeen thousand miles an hour
It's only seven months to Mars
Give or take a light year or two (Or three)
And I wanna, I wanna be an astronaut
I wanna, I wanna, wanna

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Starting lift-off procedures
All systems standing by, over
Over?

[Chorus]
Blast-off, I'm on my way, I'm a shooting star
A man on a mission
I hang with the man on the moon, I'll be there soon
A man on a mission to Mars

[Verse 2]
I headbang on the gangway
Say my prayers, cross my heart and hope to die
Open a window for the Seven Sisters of Pleiades
"Hello ladies" ("Hello Moon Man!")
Three hundred million miles to Mars
It doesn't seem so far away (Yes, it does)
And I wanna, I wanna be an astronaut
I wanna, I wanna, wanna

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Starting landing procedures
All systems standing by, over
Over?

[Chorus]
Blast-off, I'm on my way, I'm a shooting star
A man on a mission
I hang with the man on the moon, I'll be there soon
A man on a mission to Mars
Blast-off, I'm on my way, I'm a shooting star
A man on a mission
I hang with the man on the moon, I'll be there soon
I'm a man on a mission to Mars
