I Wanna Be (A Starship Ranger) - lyrics

I wanna be a Starship Ranger
I wanna have the things they've got
I could be a Starship Ranger
But there's just one little thing they are
That I'm not

All of my life I've pictured them out there
Keeping the peace in outer space
I may not be up there with 'em
But I've got what it takes

I've got a hunger & thirst for adventure
I wanna travel the galaxy
The future is now, so I don't see how
The time isn't right for me

And I'll admit
It's all in my head
But who says it can't be real
They may be far away, but I can safely say
It doesn't change the way I feel

I wanna be a Starship Ranger
Even if it might sound strange
Maybe now, I'm not a Ranger
But all of that is right about to change

ROACH:
All of your life
You've had your head stuck up in the gaseous atmosphere
Don't forget that dirt is solid
And clouds can disappear

When you're an insect
You have a purpose, like it or not, from a fly to a flea
Need I remind you, leave that stuff behind so you can find what yours can be?

'Cause the needs of
The many bugs-

ROACH & BUG: they outweigh the few

ROACH:
And everybody knows it's just the way it goes
And there's nothing you can do

You wanna be a Starship Ranger?
Discover worlds far and near
Who gives a crap about Starship Rangers?
The greatest life to live is found right here

Now come on! Last one there is a delicious rotten egg!

CHORUS OF BUGS:
Dirt eater!

Exoskeleton Polisher!
I wanna build honeycombs!
The Bug that ruins your picnic!
.... A fly on the wall!

We've all got a job to do
And it's how we all survive
By giving our life to the hive

'Cause the needs of
The many bugs
They outweigh the few

BUG: I know today's the day
CHORUS: (Today's the day)

EVERYONE: I/we will find what we're meant to do...

BUG:
The Queen will surely see I'm not like everyone else
She'll take one look and know my rightful calling
She'll understand that I just can't be living my life for the hive
And I can finally
(Finally)
Know what it's like to be alive!

CHORUS OF BUGS:
I wanna be something that can
Serve the greater good of our race
I'll do whatever I can
To make our world a better place

BUG:
If only I could get to outer space!

I wanna be a Starship Ranger
It doesn't matter at all where I'm from
So look out, Starship Rangers
Cause here I am

CHORUS:
Here I am

BUG:
And here I come!

CHORUS:
Dirt eater!
Exoskeleton polisher!
The bug that ruins your picnic!

ALL:
It's all I wanna
Be!
