• Oh,it will be fine
    To rocket through space
    And see the reverse
    Of the moon's dark face,

    To travel to Saturn
    Or Venus or Mars,
    Or maybe discover
    Some hidden stars,

    But do they have anything
    Better than we?
    Do you think, for instance,
    They have a blue sea

    For sailing and swimming?
    Do planets have hills
    With raspberry thickets
    Where a song sparrow fills

    The summer with music?
    And do they have snow
    To silver roads
    Where the school buses go?

    Oh,I'm all for rockets And worlds cold or hot,
    But I'm in love with the world we've got!
