play Guess she  
play From the smiles and the look in their  
play Everyone's got a theory about the   one

play They're saying, "Mama never loved her much
play And daddy never keeps in touch
play That's why she   away from human affection
play But somewhere in a private place
play She packs her   for outer space
play And now she's waiting for
play the right kind of   to come"
play And she'll say to him
play She's sayin'

play "I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
play If you'll be my baby
play I've got a ticket for a world where we belong
play So would you be my baby?"

play She can't remember a time
play When she felt  
play If love was   then she was color blind
play All her

play Send a signal
play that she's hanging all her   on the stars
play What a pleasant dream"

play If you'll be my baby
play I've got a ticket for a world where we belong
play So would you be my baby?"

play Hold on, hold on

play "Mama never loved her much
play And, daddy never keeps in touch
play That's why she shies away from human affection
play But somewhere in a private place
play She packs her bags for outer space
play And now she's waiting for
play the right kind of pilot to come"
play And she'll say to him

play "I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
play If you'll be my baby
play I've got a ticket for a world where we belong
play So would you be my baby?"

play "I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
