Destination Moon
The Ames Brothers Lyrics


Come and take a trip in my rocket ship
We'll have a lovely afternoon
Kiss the world goodbye and away we fly
Destination moon

Travel fast as light 'til we're lost from sight
The earth is like a toy balloon
What a thrill you get ridin' on a jet
Destination moon
We'll go up, up, up, up
Straight to the moon we two
High in the starry blue
I'll be out of this world with you

So away we steal in a space mobile
A supersonic honeymoon
Leave your cares below
Pull the switch, let's go
Destination moon

Destination moon
Destination moon

There once was a time when the colorful thing to do
Was to call for a date on a bicycle built for two
But cars and trains and even planes all have had their day
Now the time is due to call for you in the modern atomic way

We'll go up, up, up, up
Straight to the moon we two
High in the starry blue
I'll be out of this world with you

So away we steal in a space mobile
A supersonic honeymoon
Leave your cares below
Pull the switch, let's go
Destination moon

This record was part of my family's LP collection for as many years as I can remember. This is a great song. I'm writing this on the weekend where we mark the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. This record was in the early years of the space race, around the time of Sputnik. It is amazing to think that only about 10 years later, man had set foot on the moon. We had indeed reached "Destination Moon."

Same here. This was a part of my family's album collection, and I always thought it was such a catchy tune.

This song got stuck in my head from somewhere. It must've been some documentary about the early days of the space program.

I have heard the Diana Washington version a lot of times on radio station KIXI out here in Seattle WA. This is the first time I've heard this one.

This song and this version appears in the documentary "Mission Control, the unsung heroes". Another version by Dinah Washington appears in the HBO miniseries "From The Earth To The Moon".
