"Supersonic Rocket Ship" as written by and Davies....
Let me take you on a little trip
My supersonic ship's at your disposal
If you feel so inclined. Well alright.
We're gonna travel faster than light
So do up your overcoat tight
And you'll go anywhere you want to decide. Well alright.
Too many people side by side
Got no place to hide.

On my supersonic rocket ship
Nobody has to be hip
Nobody needs to be out of sight. Out of sight.
Nobody's gonna travel second class
There'll be equality
And no suppression of minorities. Well alright.
We'll take this planet, shake it round
And turn it upside down.
My supersonic rocket ship.

It ain't no magic, ain't no lie,
You'll laugh so loud you'll cry.
Up and down, round and round
On my supersonic rocket ship.

Let me take you on a little trip
My supersonic ship's at your disposal
If you feel so inclined. Well alright.
Nobody's gonna travel second class
There'll be equality
And no suppression of minorities. Well alright.
Let me take you on a little trip
On my supersonic rocket ship.

    General CommentCan't believe I had to add this song. This songs awesome. Although light-hearted it has a political edge I feel, the supersonic rocket ship is a metaphor for a better society, a future where there is "equality and no suppression of minorities". Fantastic song from a fantastic band, a band only bettered probably by The Beatles. Yet no-one gives them much notice. So for God's sake stop listening to The Kooks and The View and the bloody Arctic Monkeys and all that crap and start actually listening to some decent music like The Kinks!!!

    General CommentI love the way The Kinks hide deep political ideas behind catchy little tunes and silly things... like rocketships.
