Raise the bottle to the long-gone space cadet
He's resting himself there
In the bottom of a glass boat

Sweet William, in the valley of the rocket ship
When the booster's blasting off
Don't you listen, don't worry

All the air in the long-gone atmosphere
Draws the strangest colored lights
And the sun, she goes darkly now

Oh, the starlight/sunlight, when you die
Is so pretty in the sky
In the belly of the glass boat

Take good care of yourself
I wish you well
Darling William, when you're lonely
Think of us back on Earth

And I will dig my hole
Every time I think I can hear you
Somewhere out in the dark
