Lyrics
Well I wonder why it is

that we have rascals rogues and losers

We've got roustabouts rapscallions and a bucket load of boozers

We've got balladeers and blowhards of all sorts

We've got poets priests and pirates

but we have no astronauts



They say there was a space race

if there was I think I missed it

From the earth up to the moon and back,

doesn't that take the biscuit

Well I wouldn't mind a little ride in zero gravity

as long as they could promise I'd be home in time for tea



[chorus]

I've got me two good legs if I wanna take a trip,

I've got no use for a rocket ship

I walk if you don't mind

It's how I always get around

I might be staring at the stars

but I keep both feet on the ground

both feet on the ground

I've got both feet on the ground



There's a great big giant vacuum

up there in the sky

Ah but where's the place to plug it in

I think it's all a lie

I've heard of Halley's Comet

And I'll tell you what I think

It's just a kind of chemical for cleaning out the sink






[chorus]

I've got me two good legs if I wanna take a trip,

I've got no use for a rocket ship

I walk if you don't mind

It's how I always get around

I might be staring at the stars

but I keep both feet on the ground

both feet on the ground

I've got both feet on the ground



We've got no use for Sputnik

We've got sponge to go around

And you'll never see the shuttle land

on the streets of Newlyn Town

Well in the fields of "Vatimbly"

there's not a launching pad in sight

We've got no "Mersa voyageurs"

and we turned out all right



[chorus]

I've got me two good legs if I wanna take a trip,

I've got no use for a rocket ship

I walk if you don't mind

It's how I always get around

I might be staring at the stars

but I keep both feet on the ground

I keep my both feet on the ground

I've got both feet on the ground
