Be An Astronaut Lyrics

Declan McKenna – Be An Astronaut Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Daniel, do you remember?
You were in such a state
The boys who wait outside your house
Have got your number
And are not afraid to use it

[Verse 2]
They'll probably give it out
To anyone they see, including me
They'll probably make up your mind
As if you want them to

[Chorus]
Oh, you
Those boys tell you what to do
All of the time
On then later on
You said I could be just what I wanted
They said "Stop lying"
For you were born to be an astronaut
And you'll do that or die trying
What a way to live and die

[Post-Chorus]
And you wonder why the boys will cry
Boys will be boys, they should listen
Do as their mothers tell them

[Verse 3]
If you know what's good for you
Behave yourself this time, for me
If you know what's good for you
Don't lay around complaining all day
Oh my, the boys that wait are on the line
And they're not crying

[Chorus]
On and later on, they will tell you what went wrong
They'll say "Stop lying"
For you were born to be an astronaut
And you'll do it or die trying
There'd be nothing wrong with that

[Interlude]
Oh, you waste your time
Come waste mine!

[Chorus]
Oh my, the boys that wait are on the line
And they're not crying
Oh, later on, you'll tell them what went wrong
And they'll say you're lying
Well, you were born an astronaut
And you'll do that or die trying
There'd be nothing wrong with it, ah
