Standard orbit, steady as she goes!
We’re sailing in the sky where the solar wind blows,
And we’re all dressed up in aluminum clothes,
And it’s steady as she goes, as she goes,
Steady as she goes.

We’re all topsy-turvy and turning around,
Don’t know which way’s up and another way’s down
It’s nothing like having your feet on the ground,
And it’s steady as she goes, as she goes,
Steady as she goes.

Sundown, sunrise an hour away,
But it’s easy to take on an astronaut’s pay.
And Einstein says we stay younger this way. ...
And it’s steady as she goes, as she goes,
Steady as she goes.

Heads up, Florida, here we come
With a double sonic boom flying out of the sun!
We’ll pass around the jar when the job is done—
It’s steady as she goes, as she goes,
Steady as she goes.

Standard orbit, steady as she goes;
We’re sailing in the sky where the solar wind blows,
And we’re all dressed up in aluminum clothes—
It’s steady as she goes, as she goes,
Steady as she goes!
