Lyrics
Wanna be the ruler of the galaxy
Wanna be the king of the universe
Let's meet and have a baby now!
Wanna be the empress of fashion
Wanna be the president of Moscow
Let's meet and have a baby now!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
Hey, I'm Fred the Cancerian from New Jersey
I like collecting records and exploring
The cave of the unknown
Hello, I'm Cindy, I'm a Pisces
And I like Chihuahuas and
Chinese noodles
Wanna be the first lady of infinity
Wanna be the nicest guy on earth
Let's meet and have a baby now!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
La! La! La! La! La!
Now! Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!
Now! La! La! La! La! La!
Hi, my name is Ricky and I'm a Pisces
I love computers and hot tamales
Hey, I'm Kate and I am a Taurus
I love tomatoes and black-capped
Chickadees
Hey, my name is Keith and I'm a
Scorpio from Athens, G-A and I like
To find the essence from within
Wanna be the captain of the Enterprise
Wanna be the king of the Zulus
Let's meet and have a baby now!
Wanna be the daughter of Dracula
Wanna be the son of Frankenstein
Let's meet and have a baby now!
Wanna be mother-father
Wanna be daughter-son
Wanna be captain
Wanna be ruler-king and empress
