Theme Song Lyrics

I wish I was a spaceman,
The fastest guy alive.
I'd fly you 'round the universe
In Fireball XL5
Way out in space together
Conquerors of the skies
My heart would be a fireball, a fireball
Every time I gaze into your starry eyes
We'd take a path to Jupiter
And maybe very soon
We'd cruise along the Milky Way
And land upon the moon
The wonderland of stardust
We'll zoom away to Mars
My heart would be a fireball, a fireball
'Cause you would be my Venus of the stars.
