[Verse 1]
   G              Em           Am7            D7 [*Riff]
I wish I was a spaceman, the fastest guy a - live,
     G                Em         Am7            D7 [*Riff]
I'd fly around the universe in Fireball X - L - 5,
     G                 Em         Am7             D  D   C C  C    D
Way out in space to - gether, conquerors of the skies!

My heart would be a fireball,  a fireball,
       C                D7              G     D7 [*Riff]
Every time I gazed in - to your starry eyes!


[Verse 2]
       G                Em          Am7       D7 [*Riff]
We'd take the path to Jupiter, and maybe very soon,
       G               Em             Am7          D7 [*Riff]
We'd cruise along the Milky Way, and land upon the Moon,

To a wonderland of stardust, we'd zoom our way to Mars!

[Chorus]
                       G           Em
My heart would be a fireball,  a fireball,

'Cause you would be my Venus of the stars!

[Verse 3]
       G                 Em       Am7            D7    [*Riff]
But, though I'm not a spaceman, famous and re - nowned,
     G                 Em                 Am7                D7  [*Riff]

It's all imagi - nation, I'll never reach the stars!

My heart is still a fireball,  a fireball,
       C               D7              G    D7 [*Riff]
Every time I gaze in - to your starry eyes,
   G         Em
Fireball,  fireball, 
       C               D7              G    D7 [*Riff]
Every time I gaze in - to your starry eyes!

Hi Gilman,I agree, cool song. I just supplied the guitar tab, all the other features are set up by the site owners, I don't have any control over those. But the play feature I think is to do with 'Guitar Pro' which is another way song tabs can be sent to the site, but needs a software download. The Dexter theme is just a demo sample to show you what the program can offer.However if you look at the top of my tab I included a link to Youtube where you can hear the full song. DJ
