It is a love song to a star. Epsilon Eridani.


You are such a young star,
you look so close and you know that you are
beautiful, beautiful. Oh let's go, come on make me.
I like your stellar winds, but you redshift as you head away.
I ‘ve got the blues for your blueshift,
in my spaceship. Oh let's go, c’mon take me.
They say you are a 5, but you're really a 10.
It's not ‘If I orbit,’ but how and when.
I'll take the bow shock, the heliopause.
Oh let's go, c’mon shake it.
Unseen companion means nothing to me.
He's so much dust in the infinity.
Yeah you got a date with Luyten 726-8.
But that's so far away. so far away.
We can meet for a picnic on Eridani b.
I'll get some sandwiches and turn off the TV.
You've the asteroid belts, and ooh what else?
C’mon shake it up.
