Daniel Johnston - Rocket Ship Lyrics




Rocket ship
Rocket ship
Going on a trip far away
I'm leaving today
I'm leaving today

Rocket ship
Rocket ship
My bags are packed I'm ready to go
My bags are packed I'm ready to go
10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1!
The stars are blurry; we're going fast!

Rocket ship
Rocket ship
Planet X
There's this girl there
Her name is X
I say, "Hello, you don't know me but I don't know you either"

Rocket ship
Rocket ship
Our bags are packed we're ready to go
Our bags are packed we're ready to go
10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1!
The stars are blurry; we're moving fast!

We're going on a trip far away
We're leaving today
Our home is our rocket ship

    Sorry entertainer is my favorite DJ song. How many people you know can take a guitar completely and utterly out of tune and make it into a believable song?

    Yeah Matt Groening is a big Daniel Johnston fan. He was personal friends with Frank zappa and even wrote a book about The Residents. He's a big proponent of strange and good music.

    "I say hello you don't know me, but I don't know you either."
