The Queen of Night

Farewell to sun-scorched inner worlds
And Terra's burning sky
On sails of shining gossamer
Back to the night we fly;
Past Jove the ruler of the sky
Toward Saturn his fair Queen
Most beautiful of all the worlds
That any man has seen.
    Outward bound, outward bound 
    We're outward bound for Saturn
    With her crown of golden light
    Homeward bound, homeward bound
    Where my own lady is waiting 
    In the court of the Queen of Night
On a liner called the Queen of Night
For Saturn we are bound
With Earth and Sun behind us now
And bright stars all around.
With passengers and cargo
On the outward course we'll steer
For my home and for my lady
All the things that I hold dear.
Drink another bag of coffee
Take the morning watch alone.
Even now the rings are blazing
In the sky above my home.
Though Terra's hills are green and fair
They are not home to me;
My lady's face against the sky
Is all that I can see.      
My true love has a wedding ring
That covers half the sky
Too long I've been a-roving
Now back to her I'll fly
My Princess of the Darkness
In the court of the Queen of Night
It's all the love she holds for me
That makes the rings so bright.
