Sun Ra Rockets to Mars

Sun RA Rockets to Mars/Tony Adamo/2000

Sun Ra  rockets to Mars/ landing with his Arkestra by way of his supersonic  jazzhip ship/
The red dust be a  flyin’ below his dancen’ feet/
The heliocentric  world of Sun Ra  comes to the red planet

Sun Ra is a true jazzophonic citizen and the first musician to probe deep space/
He is a high tech hitchhiker among the stars with knowledge of the heavens above taken  from the Egyptian pyramids below/
Get on board the Sun Ra space cruiser/
Get on board we’ll travel the space ways together/
Get on board for bebop, jazz and beyond/
Dig the flight with Sun Ra leading  the way/

Message from Sun Ra calling from  Saturn and the milky way/
Message from” sonny”/
I’ve long left my earthly ways at Delmark,ESP,Saturn and Black Saint records/
My free jazz spacealicous music can be heard in between the layers of cosmic space to the galactic beyond 
I bring you the healing force of the universe/
Space is the place

Oh yeah man talkin bout Sun Ra
The first space cruiser  to dig outer space
That cat was beyond heavy
We don’t even know if he was born on this planet earth
 Sun-Ra the first space cruiser to dig outer space
The first galactic man

See that sun  a shinnin’
Right in back of your face
Sun-Ra space is the place
Yeahh Sun Ra doin his thing  now
That creazy kind of  galactic  tripped out music
Bumpin  ya  rollin  ya
ad lib vamp out (sing)Space is the place
Words from Tony Adamo’s CD,Miles of Blu
