Harps in Space

Description

There are actually a lot of musical instruments on the International Space Station (ISS) , but, to date, no harp. And, yeah there is or was a gorilla suit up there that belonged to Astronaut Scott Kelly.


A day or two after I wrote this song I did notice a harp on the USS Discovery (Star Trek: Discovery) in a lovely scene in which two of the characters play cello and piano together —neither played the harp, but it was there in space. However, this series takes place 1100+  years into the future, so we have a long way to go! And you have no idea how hard it is to get Martians to be in a harp video!

Lyrics:


They’ve got gear

They’ve got tools

They’ve got satellites and space suits just in case

They’ve got tanks

Full of air

But what astronauts are missing, they just don’t have harps in space.


There are mice, and guitars

Lots of plants, all those stars

There’s a pizza printer up there in that place  

But they’re not very sharp

‘Cause they don’t have a harp

Can’t excuse it for their music needs a harp in outer space.


There’s a wrench

And a bench

A gorilla suit is somewhere in the place

Telescopes

Isotopes

But what astronauts are missing, they just don’t have harps in space.


There are mice, and guitars

Lots of plants, all those stars

There’s a pizza printer up there in that place  

But they’re not very sharp

‘Cause they don’t have a harp

Can’t excuse it for their music needs a harp in outer space.


Harps in space, harps in space,

Harps in space are full of grace

Harps in space, harps in space

Harps in space, would set the pace

Harps in space, harps in space

Harps in space, should have a place

Harps in space, harps in space

Harps in space, there’s not a trace


They’ve got habs

They’ve got labs

They’ve got instruments that measure and that trace

But for song

It’s all wrong

‘Cause the instrument they’re missing there is harps in outer space.


There’s a didgeridoo to toot.  (di jr ee doo)

Bagpipe, keyboard, sax, and flute

And a koto and a trumpet have their place

But if I’m the one to choose then

For the best celestial muse you

Can’t excuse it for their music needs a harp in outer space.


Harps in space, should have a place
