Canadians in Space
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, blast off!
Lancement est une réussite!

Canadians are astronauts
Well, whoever would have thought?
We're not just in insurance or in banks
From Cape Kennedy to space
And back to Edwards Air Force Base
Now it's Mark Garneau and not Tom Hanks

Canadians are not impressed
By how the astronauts are dressed
The sealed suit a space walk does require
In winter we all dress that way
So when we see them what we say
Is: "you can buy those at Canadian Tire!"

Ooh, I'm a spaceman
Way up in the outer atmosphere
Ooh, I'm a spaceman
I think I can see my house from here

It's only natural, I thought
To want to be an astronaut
If that's what we really want to do
Ready now to take our place
Way out there in outer space
We'll see things from Preston Manning's point of view

Ooh, I'm a spaceperson
All my life I've been a space cadet
Ooh, I'm a spaceperson
Sitting here beside Julie Payette

Ooh, I'm a spaceman I think I can see my house from here
