lyrics

[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones

[verse1]
Who wanna get into space?
light ’em up, turn up the bass
The Cape my launching place
missiles are my favorite shape
For every accctttion
opposite re-accction
equal is how I get my
satisfaction
like Saturn? Take V
night launches make ya’ll blind
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Go for launch, let’s light this candle
[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones

[hook]
Jump! x7 (you a rocket)
Go! x7 (for launch)

[verse2]
got budget for launches
whatever the cost is
liquid fuel, secret sauces
rocket science, Wernher’s the bossest
mind running fast, call it Flo Jo`
launch abort and I say Oh No
let’s go with abort to orbit
OMS burn when I say floor it.
Commander Funk on this mission
stay in your seats, no switchin’
80’s kid and I still say Yo Joe
let loose til i say MECO
[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones
