Because It's There

We built a giant rocket
and we sent it to the moon
with an astronaut
a cosmonaut
a dog
and a baboon
Tell the aliens on Jupiter
that we're coming soon
and we're coming
just because the stars are there

[chorus]
Because it's there
Because it's there
Because we could
Because we should
Because we dare
Because it's there
We'll pack some flares
but we're going to the [stars, bottom, top]
because they're there

We built a little submarine
upon the ocean waves
We're taking it to the bottom
to Davey Jones' grave
Through miles and miles of jelly fish
a sailor must be brave
but he's going
just because the bottom's there

[repeat chorus]

We climbed the top of Everest
We said a silent prayer
to the ones who came before us,
who couldn't make it there
And yes, the going's treacherous
and yes, we must take care
but we're going to the top
because it's there

[final chorus]
Because it's there
Because it's there
Because we could
Because we should
Because we dare
Because it's there
We'll pack some flares
but we're going to the bottom
Going to the top
Going to the stars
because they're there
because they're there
because they're there
