She takes a shower in a small town
Near Birmingham
Though here clothes are
Unfashionable
They have a timeless feel
Is she real?

She leaves the building
And walks through
The housing estate
It's 7.30
A state grey sky
But in spite of this
She turns and blows a kiss

She's leaving this earth again
There's a shuttle bound for take off
11.45 a.m. she'll be there
She's special
Oh so special
Knows enough about science
To get married to a millionaire
She'll be there

He'll comb his hair
In a high rise apartment
On the river Tyne
Though his neck is scarred
He has a strong and handsome face
A human face
He leaves the building
And walks to his electric car
It's 7.30 there's a bitter wind
But in spite of that
He turns and tips his hat

He's leaving this earth again
There's a shuttle bound for take off
11.45 a.m.

He'll be there
He's so special oh so special
Knows enough about science
To forget about his morning prayers
He'll be there

I'm leaving this earth again
There's a shuttle bound for take off
11.45 a.m. I'll be there
I'm special oh so special
I was chosen by the captain
Of a spaceship in Trafalgar Square
And I promised I'd be there or be square!
