You dreaded those exams before each launch and after landing,
Producing all those body fluids doctors were demanding.
But space was out of reach of those mad scientists and docs
’Til we found a way to put one in a box.
It will rearrange your schedule to be sure to keep you busy,
Then watch your eyes glaze over as the hardware gets you dizzy.
To make sure you have no trouble getting sick in outer space,
We’ve equipped it with a friendly user interface.
We’ll observe how green you turn when you
Get a load of what’s on the menu!
Our instruments let nerdy types go into space in spirit.
We know you hero astronauts may never let us near it.
So here’s a camera to record your brave attempts at acting tough,
And a beaker to collect your spilled Right Stuff.
Press any key except Escape to be sick.
