Care if Singing Science Records
Lyrics by Hy Zaret and Lou Singer
Performed by Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans
Zoom a little zoom in a rocket ship,
Off we go, on a trip!
Headin’ for the moon at a rocket clip,
We’re gonna zoom-zoom. . .rocket!
Zoom a little zoom, now we’re almost free, from the Earth’s gravity.
Zoomin’ to the moon at terrific speed, because there is no friction.
Soon, we’ll see if the moon is made out of green cheese, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Zoom, we’re here at the moon, let’s see what the moon is like.
Spoken: Look at those high mountains and wide craters and jagged peaks. . .and
look at that great big moon up there.
That isn’t the moon. . .That’s our Earth.
We’ve landed! I feel so light. Watch me jump. . .Thirty feet, a world’s record!
Oh, that’s easy on the moon. Keep your suit on, remember there’s no air around here.
Zoom a little zoom in a rocket ship, home we go, on a trip!
Comin’ back to Earth at a clip. We’re gonna zoom-zoom, rocket!
Anyhoo these are just the character and BG layouts. NOW I have to animate Soleil Rocketship like crazy for the Ottowa deadline.
Hm..it seems that I can stop trying to chase Tom Glazer’s estate for the rights to his song according to Wikipedia’s article on Rocketbom
Rocketboom’s opening theme music is “Zoom a Little Zoom”, from the 1959 album Space Songs (written by Hy Zaret and Lou Singer), a public domain recording because of a lapsed copyright. The theme is sung by folk musician Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans with music by Tony Mottola. The song is available for downloading from the Singing Science website.
