Did you ever see a rocket[edit]

Tune: "Have you ever seen a lassie?"

Did you ever see a rocket,

a rocket, a rocket?

Did you ever see a rocket go

this way and that?

Go this way and that way, go

this way and that way,

Did you ever see a rocket go

this way and that?

I'm a Little Rocket[edit]

Tune: "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little rocket,

Tall and thin,

Here is my nose cone,

Here is my fin.

When I get all fired up,

Launch begins.

Watch me rise,

And see me spin!


Rocket, rocket in the sky[edit]

Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Rocket, rocket in the sky,

Flying fast and flying high,

Off to find the ISS,

What's inside? Can you you guess?

Rocket, rocket in the sky,

Flying fast and flying high.
