Get ready for the blast off! 
And don't forget the hype! 
We're going into space. 

 Distinguished scientists
A pesky senator
And monkey turds leaking from the lab
All brought to us play-by-play by Howard Cosell 

You're going where no man has gone before  Because we owe you some favors 
And besides you're bright 
A little too bright 

Step one:
Senator, your vomit,
It's time to analyze it
For the folks back home 

Open the hatch, launch the war satellite 
That the commies aren't supposed to know about 
Our real challenge is to keep it a secret 
From the press back home 

You're going where no man has gone before 
Don't ask us where that is-we have no idea 

You're chosen for this great mission
 Because you're hearty and strong 
And make a lot of fuss
 Especially around us
We like you better when you're far away 

Have you noticed? 
You're gong the wrong direction 
We have,
But that's your problem 
We planned it that way
We had to dispose of all of you so
We can spoil the final frontier
How dare you question our Star Wars plans 
For the farce that they are? 

You're going where no man has gone before 
For rocking the boat
In our temple of doom 

You're on a one-way ticket to Pluto 
We wash our hands 
Of you and your lost ark
Don't forget to write: no no no no no 
No no no no no 
No no no no no
