Lyrics

Standing in the hall
of the great cathedral
Waiting for the transport to come
Starship 21ZNA9.

A good friend of mine
Studies the stars
Venus and Mars
are alright tonight

Come away on a strange vacation
Holiday hardly begun
Run into a good friend of mine
Sold me her sign
Reach for the stars
Venus and Mars
are alright tonight

Officially appears on
