THIS IS YOUR MAIDEN FLIGHT

This is your maiden flight;
come with me on this night
when stars are high in sky.
To join them we will fly.
All excuse to say No,
of Earth clothes we let go
invisible space suit
sufficient substitute.

Take no inhibition
with you on our mission.
when nothing you have known
will compare with this zone
we're about to enter.
Join me at the center,

I bid you climb on board.
Rocket's pointing forward
from deep below the paunch;
it is readied for launch.
Now the countdown's sounding,
heart engines are pounding,
sending off vibrations,
making new sensations.

We'll be above cloud nine
lost in a world divine
where you won't feel the weight
lost in ecstatic state,
The long hair on your head
around it I'll see spread
as up and down you go
while I'm on back below.
Forget all that is past,
the memory will last.
