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.
