From the recording Makeshift Spaceship

Lyrics

We got a brand new dishwasher.
It was all shiny and chrome.
And that was the day that something amazing
First entered my home.
 
I'd never seen such a big cardboard box.
I got my scissors and my paint.
And all that day I scissored and painted,
Until it got real late.
 
I made a makeshift spaceship.
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
With my makeshift spaceship,
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
 
I can see a dozen galaxies
In less than an hour.
No more need for baths,
Just passed a meteor shower.
 
I’ve met some really cool aliens,
With forty-seven eyes.
And I don't need to talk to them,
'Cause they can read my mind.
 
I made a makeshift spaceship.
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
With my makeshift spaceship,
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
 
My new friends point out their weird animals,
Like zoopers and cralingers.
Cralingers have a hundred horns,
And zoopers sound like opera singers.
 
The aliens act so proud
When they show me all around their planets.
And when I give them a lift in my spaceship,
They say, "This is fantastic!"
 
We visit their many moons,
And fly by their several suns.
I never thought a cardboard box
Could be so much fun...
 
I made a makeshift spaceship.
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
With my makeshift spaceship,
Now I can go anywhere.
When I play with my makeshift spaceship
I blast through the atmosphere.
