[Verse 1]
   Dm                          Gm           Dm
My mama told me I should never venture into space,
      F      A      Dm
But I did, I did, I did,
    Dm                        Gm                Dm
She said no Terran girl could trust the Martian race,
      F      A      Dm
But I did, I did, I did.
  Gm                        Dm
A rocket pilot asked me on a voyage to go,
    Gm                        F            A
And I was so romantic, I just couldn't say no;
     Dm                        Gm           Dm
That he was just a servo robot how was I to know?
      F      A      Dm
So I did, I did, I did.

[Verse 2]
   Dm                           Gm            Dm
My papa warned me never trust a space engineer,
      F      A      Dm
But I did, I did, I did.
   Dm                                 Gm             Dm
He said freefall and superdrive would surely cost me dear,
         F         A         Dm
And they did, they did, they did.
         Gm                           Dm
But I've been as far in hyperspace as anybody can,
Gm                                          F     A
I've travelled through the time warp in the Psycho Plan.
     Dm                           Gm       Dm
They say a gal must travel for to find her superman
      F      A      Dm
And I did, I did, I did.

[Verse 3]
     Dm                         Gm        Dm
They warned me not to go around among the asteroids,
      F      A      Dm
But I did, I did, I did.
     Dm                                  Gm         Dm
They said I'd make those Class 3 Mutants dreadfully annoyed,
      F      A      Dm
And I did, I did, I did.
     Gm                            Dm
They said that Saturn was too hot, Venus not much fun,
    Gm                             F             A
And bug-eyed monsters tended to be just a trifle dumb;
     Dm                            Gm             Dm
They said I'd need a blaster and a needle-freezer gun,
      F      A      Dm
And I did, I did, I did.

[Instrumental]
Gm F A

[Verse 4]
     Dm                               Gm            Dm
They said to find a man out there and try to settle down,
      F      A     Dm
So I did, I did, I did.
     Dm                                   Gm                 Dm
They said my kids might grow up one-eyed, green, or bald, or round,
         F         A         Dm
And they did, they did, they did.
   Gm                             Dm
My cosmic husband died of mumps a hundred years ago,
   Gm                            F               A
my daughter's in the Milky Way a-tracking down a beau,
    Dm                            Gm             Dm
And I'm so old and doddering I've nothing for to show,
      F      A      Dm
But I did, I did, I did.
      F      A      Dm
Oh I did, I did, I did.
