    Kat,
    Great find. I’d like to see the lyrics to this song. I saw her once in Berkeley while I think she was signing a disk, we spoke. She was so kind. I recall she put her hands over mine to show she cared. I get mailings from her so she is doing concerts online.
    You can check on FB or google her site.

      My mama told me I should never venture into space
      But I did, I did, I did.
      She said no Terran girl could trust the Martian race
      But I did, I did, I did.
      A rocket pilot asked me on a voyage to go
      And I was so romantic I just couldn’t say no—
      That he was just a servo robot how was I to know?—
      So I did, I did, I did.

      My papa told me never trust a space engineer
      But I did, I did, I did.
      He said freefall and superdrive would surely cost me dear
      And they did, they did, they did.
      But I’ve been as far in hyperspace as anybody can,
      I’ve travelled through the time warp on the Psycho Plan.
      They say a gal must travel forth to find her superman
      And I did, I did, I did.

      They warned me not to go around among the asteroids
      But I did, I did, I did.
      They said I’d make those class-three mutants dreadfully annoyed
      And I did, I did, I did.
      They said that Saturn was too hot, Venus not much fun
      And bug-eyed monsters tended to be just a trifle dumb.
      They said I’d need a blaster and a needle-freezer gun
      And I did, I did, I did.

      They said to find a man out there and try to settle down
      So I did, I did, I did.
      They said my kids might grow up one-eyed, green, or bald, or round,
      And they did, they did, they did.
      My cosmic husband died of mumps a hundred years ago
      My daughter’s in the Milky Way a’trackin’ down a beau
      And I’m so old and dodderin’ I’ve nothing for to show
      What I did, I did, I did.
