ROCKET

JOE BENNETT & THE SPARKLETONES
(ABC-PARAMOUNT 45-9867, 1957)

Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
Well, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space
Oh yeah, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space

Well, I made me a rocket form an old peach crate
And I souped it up like an eighty-eight
I grabbed my baby and I started to hop
Look out Mars, you're our next stop

Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
Well, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space
Oh yeah, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space

When we passed through the Milky Way
Now my baby didn't have too much to say
She grabbed my hand and she started to flip
She said, honey don't you wrech this ship

Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
Me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space
Oh yeah, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space

Well, when we landed on the moon
We met this fellow, who's name was goon
He started to bop and he ain't no square
Rock 'n' roll is everywhere

Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
Me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space
Oh yeah, me and my baby, we're movin' to outer space
Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
Oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket, oo-oo-ooh, hot rocket
