Baby, you've been away out there

tell us what you brought back home to share

while touching the edge of the universe

and putting silver and gold stardust in your purse.

Did you drink from the big and little dippers

try on Virgo's dress or fit in Gemini's slippers

You couldn't pass those galactic space yard sales

without weighing everything in Libra's scales.

Up and at them before the break of morn

buying Christmas presents around Capricorn

Shooting one of Sagittarius's arrows through hell

striking a few notes on one of Satan's bells

and then taking a ride on the very back of Leo

to seventh heaven you let Saint Peter know.

Baby, you've been a fairy dancer

catching stars and dodging in and out of Cancer

flying so fast you split Saturn's rings

escaping Scorpio you suffered through the stings

Fighting valiantly with furies around Taurus the bull

like lightening within Aries you felt the Earth's pull.

One last stop to splash down beneath the seas

out of double trouble you blast away from Pisces

in a ship made to order and carry all of your stuff

you're on your way back home my sweet Aquarius.

Baby, you've been away out there

tell us what you brought back home to share

while touching the edge of the universe

and putting silver and gold stardust in your purse.

Did you drink from the big and little dippers

try on Virgo's dress or fit in Gemini's slippers

You couldn't pass those galactic space yard sales

without weighing everything in Libra's scales.

Up and at them before the break of morn

buying Christmas presents around Capricorn

Shooting one of Sagittarius's arrows through hell

striking a few notes on one of Satan's bells

and then taking a ride on the very back of Leo

to seventh heaven you let Saint Peter know.

Baby, you've been away out there...
