"If Thou Were A Space Craft" was a common folk song that derived from the later stages of The Sailing Age. Though originally a song of civil resistance, the tune became popularized in common times as a children's melody.


If thou were a space craft, a shiny giant ship,
The gods would kiss thy smelly hull, if just for one small trip.

If thou had large star sails, that fanned about high-ho!
Every ruler wouldst present a seat beside their throne.

But, if thou were a spacecraft, the best advice to heed
is to never be a being like me, a thinking, feeling breed.
