Sailing on a Spaceship to Mars
    Linkby Audrey A. Robinson-Seurig
    LinkRouget De Lisle Award contest results


Long ago, when sailors crossed the oceans,
They discovered continents unknown.
These explorers, sailing on their seaships,
Did uncover places of their own.

They were sailing, sailing, sailing on their seaships,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.
They were sailing, sailing, sailing on their seaships,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.

And they sang:
…We'll sail into the night.
…We'll follow the lights.
…We can see the stars.
…We're following our hearts!

Now today, we have the opportunity
To explore the planet next door.
By cooperating internationally,
We can make this giant leap for humanity!

We'll be sailing, sailing, sailing on a spaceship,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.
We'll be sailing, sailing, sailing on a spaceship,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.

And we'll sing:
…We'll sail into the night.
…We'll follow the lights.
…We can see the stars.
…We're on our way to Mars!

Will you join us, sailing on a spaceship,
To explore the planet next door?
The Martian frontier offers opportunities
For us to understand more about the universe.

We'll be sailing, sailing, sailing on a spaceship,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.
We'll be sailing, sailing, sailing on a spaceship,
Sailing, sailing over the ocean blue.

And we'll sing:
…We'll sail into the night.
…We'll follow the lights.
…We can see the stars.
…We're on our way to Mars!
