Monkey on a Rocket Lyrics

Monkey on a Rocket
2007 Grant Maloy Smith
The stars are really out tonight
Must be in honor of my maiden flight
It’s a long way down
But they keep me occupied
With the knobs and switches
That make this baby fly

I was chosen from a thousand
Trained for years to fly
Above a million houses
But now, up here
It’s not what I expected
I wish that I had never been selected

NASA can you reach me?
I think this thing is leaking
I’m only flesh and bone
And I’m running out of air

NASA hear me calling
This tiny capsule’s falling
and I can’t seem to stop it
It’s no use - I’m a monkey on a rocket
Monkey on a rocket

When I was just a baby boy
Climbing branches was my purest joy
No cares – three squares
Life was so simple then
No cords no clips no cables
Hanging from my head then

I’m no rocket surgeon, am I?
I’m just an ordinary, unassuming man
I don’t have one clue
how to reprogram anything
But me and my banana
We know how to swing

NASA can you reach me?
I think this thing is leaking
I’m only flesh and bone
And I’m running out of air

NASA hear me calling
This tiny capsule’s falling
and I can’t seem to stop it
It’s no use - I’m a monkey on a rocket
Monkey on a rocket

It’s only make-believe
When you live in a tiny machine
So far away from where we came
It seems like magic
Toto, don’t pull that curtain away
We’re all prisoners inside
this fantasy life

NASA can you reach me?
I think this thing is leaking
I’m only flesh and bone
And I’m running out of air

NASA hear me calling
This tiny capsule’s falling
and I can’t seem to stop it
It’s no use - I’m a monkey on a rocket
Monkey on a rocket
