  1. If I Were an Airplane

    If I were an airplane, flying way up high,

    (hold arms out straight at shoulder level for wings)

    I’d tip my wings,

    (tip body and arms side to side)

    To make a turn,

    (turn around once with arms tipped to side)

    As I go zooming by.

    (make the ZOOM! sound) 

  2. Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

    Zoom, zoom, zoom

    We’re going to the moon

    Zoom, zoom, zoom

    We’re going to the moon

     If you want to take a trip,

    Climb aboard my rocket ship

    We’re going to the moon

    In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, BLASTOFF!!!

    Fun, fun, fun, we’re going to the sun

    Far, far, far, we’re going to the stars
