Kepler-186f

I'm building a spaceship in my garden shed From old bits of second hand cars It's due to depart in a couple of months Not to Uranus,Venus or Mars But far further away in the cosmos Lies a planet quite similar to Earth With an atmosphere simply to die for Yes it's Kepler dash 186f There room for at least a dozen or so And I'm currently making a list Of some of my friends who might fancy the trip But I think I will have to insist That they bring some warm clothes for the journey Some sandwiches, cakes and a flask 'cause five hundred light years is quite distant But I think they'll be up to the task I'm obliged to ask Peter and Suzy Well they asked us for Christmas last year And Bill and Claudette from the Alderman's Arms I could put them in charge of the beer There's Mary and Phil, they're already an item There's Vera McKinlay and Brent Then there's Tommy and Sue, I just had to invite them As Tommy's the one with the tent I've ensured that they're all of childbearing age And I'll pair them all up from the start And I'll seat them together to help them get familiar before we depart Then as soon as we land on the planet We'll get down to the business in hand And in no time at all there'll be hundreds of us To develop our new wonderland So I'll soon have the craft fit for lift-off And I've filled up the rockets with gas And I'm sure they'll withstand the explosion Cause I've used only best fibreglass Then as soon as my crew are assembled And the satnav is fitted and primed We'll be heading for Kepler dash 186f And one more giant step for mankind

That was a fun piece of writing, I'm sure you'll be up for a Darwin award in no time at all!
