Rocket Scientist | Tray Eppes


=intro [A] x4  -verse-[[:D][Bm][A]%:]] D][E][A…]….]

I tell you my baby, she’s got what it takes 

to work it out in her head and make no mistakes.  

To figure what’s up, she’ll turn it inside out.  

My baby makes me want to jump and shout.  

She’s got looks and brains.  I can’t resist. 

  My baby’s a Rocket Scientist. 

The girl’s got style.  She’s got wit and grace.  One look sends me into outer space.  She could work for NASA.  I believe she does. 

Takes me for a ride in the wind tunnel of love.  

I dream at night of her jet-powered kiss.

If it’s brains you want, she’s got plenty.  Compared to her I don’t have any.

But when it comes to loving we do just fine.  I can’t believe that girl is mine.  

I’ve never known a love like this.  My baby’s a Rocket Scientist

I’ve got a rocket in my pocket and that girl’s got it lit.  My baby’s a Rocket Scientist

I told her I wanted to live on the space station.  She said she’d put me on the list.

I ask her to bring home a space suit just to see how it was going to fit.

Sometimes we go out dancing.  She likes to do the twist.

In the school of love she can pass any test.

I’m so glad she didn’t study to be a podiatrist.

We’re gunna end this song something like this.

note: 

I know a rocket scientist.  For security reasons I can’t reveal her name.  Kelly Murphy

Our mutual friend, Pat Ward, pointed out how could I not write a song when I actually know and admire a rocket scientist.   Kelly is also a musician and huge promoter of live music.  Long live Kelly Murphy and her house concert venue “Harris Creek Acoustic”.
