FireBall XL-5

This picture is the prompt for Monday’s Child prompt #13. But I could not write anything of my own, because this picture started off the theme song tune of Fireball XL-5 in my head.. a 1960s cartoon, which I used to watch passionately as a kid! And I felt this song was so RIGHT for this picture!

I wish I was a space man
The fastest guy alive
I’d fly you round the universe,
In Fireball XL-5
Way out in space together,
Compass of the sky,
My heart would be a fireball,
A fireball,
Everytime I gazed into your starry eyes.

We’d take the path to Jupiter,
And maybe very soon
We’d cruise along the Milky Way,
And land upon the moon.
To our wonderland of stardust,
We’ll zoom our way to Mars,
My heart would be a fireball,
A fireball,
If you would be my Venus of the stars.
