"Spacer's Home"

Space is long and dark and empty, quite a ways ‘tween friend and friend
And you never know nobody when your journey’s at an end
So the place you’re gonna find me, ‘tween the times I have to roam
Is in the bar around the corner where they make you feel at home

Belly up to the bar, friend, have another round!
It’s long, cold, and lonely ‘tween the times we hit the ground
One day I’m gonna settle down, nevermore to roam
But for now the bar’s the spacer’s home so far away from home

Spaceport bars is commonplaces, here you’ll find the common men
Some as rough as three-day whiskey, some as bright as hidden sin
Soome as deadly as an adder, some is dumber than a stone
And when they’re not chasing starlets they make spaceport bars their home

Out on Mars, the Winking Lizard lies just left, beyond the gate
Lady Stella does the pouring and you never have to wait
For the rum that burns your gizzard and incinerates your brain
And you hear the tales of Mars before the city-slickers came

Belly up to the bar, friend, have another round!
It’s long, cold, and lonely ‘tween the times we hit the ground
One day I’m gonna settle down, nevermore to roam
But for now the bar’s the spacer’s home so far away from home

You know Ballast Three ain’t nothing, but the Jammer’s worth the trip
Though you better not cross Charlie or you’ll get a busted lip
But the folks there like their singing and their joking and their brew
And you’ll think you’ve gone to glory ‘for the evening’s halfway through

You’ve a friend at Finke’s Weight when you drop on Heaven’s Rim
Where they free-pour Irish whiskey and they let you tell them when
That’s where Angel watches over you, and when you’ve had enough
There’s a space back in the corner where he’ll let you sleep it off

Belly up to the bar, friend, have another round!
It’s long, cold, and lonely ‘tween the times we hit the ground
One day I’m gonna settle down, nevermore to roam
But for now the bar’s the spacer’s home so far away from home

There’s the Lone Star on New Texas where the chilli’s piping hot
And the Unicorn on Eros where the brandy hits the spot
And there’s Duck’s on Alta Seven and there’s Donna’s on New Rome
And there’s not one man among us who’s afraid to call them home

Space is long and dark and empty, quite a ways ‘tween friend and friend
And you never know nobody when your journey’s at an end
So the place you’re gonna find me, ‘tween the times I have to roam
Is in the bar around the corner where they make you feel at home

Belly up to the bar, friend, have another round!
It’s long, cold, and lonely ‘tween the times we hit the ground
One day I’m gonna settle down, nevermore to roam
But for now the bar’s the spacer’s home so far away from home
But for now the bar’s the spacer’s home so far away from home
