Who was that sneaking up the stairs
Taking a hairpin from her hair
Vision of the locks falling down
Crushed my mind and played with the sound
Of tapping, gentle tapping at my morning starship

The crystal glint of the turning glass
The creaking sound of the rusted glass
As she slowly opened the door
The darkness told me nothing more
Except to say that she was near my morning starship

She stood within the threshold silently
A ray of moonlight caught her eyes
Without a word she said, "Could I come in"
And I said, "Well, you're in already
You might as well sit down, and stay awhile"

She made her way across the room
Her golden hair eclipsed the moon
The perfect head framed in silver blue
Find its way to the mind and I knew
The girl, the girl, the girl heads for my morning starship

Ah, lala lala la
Lala lala la
La la la la, la la la
Ah, la la la
Lala lala la
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la, la

She's gone away, what can I do
She took the keys, she's got the clue
Mysteries unfold with the lights
What she knows I'll never forget
The girl, the girl, the girl heads for my morning starship
Yeah, she travels with me now in my morning starship

Boom boom boom
Morning starship
