I wrote this one for one of my little fans that came running into the concert hall before a show to show me his brand new rocket shoes. I remember loving excitement and promise of a new pair of shoes when I was a kid. . .and I never even had a pair with rockets on them!


These rocket shoes are real man, make no mistake
There’s a picture of a rocket ship right on the toe
Bright lights flash with every step I take
The lights blink faster, the faster I go

I fly, I fly, right up in the sky
I run real fast and that lights the fuse
I fly, I fly, way up in the sky
Every time I wear my rocket shoes

They might not look like much to you
But when I wear these shoes, I can fly through the air
If you don’t believe it’s true
I’ll wave next time I’m way up there

Ten, I tie my laces tight
Nine, I then begin to run
Eight, I get my speed just right
Seven, six, five, four, three, two, one

I’ve got the fastest shoes in this galaxy
Next time I take off I’m gonna shoot for the stars
There’s no doubt that I’m gonna be
The first kid ever to land on mars
