This is Space Command to Zoom

Every year on my birthday, Captain Zoom makes an appearance in some way, shape or form - thanks to my lovely Mom. Sometimes over the phone, sometimes in person, one time it was even sent Zoom to Andy at work to have him sneakily play it in my office. I'm curious how he'll make his appearance today for the BIG 2-7!

Through a little research, I've learned that Captain Zoom visited many children of the late 70s and early 80s on their birthday. He's been visiting me almost my ENTIRE life. And I love him. He's the best. To my surprise, I found out the Zoom visited Joe when he was little too! Can you believe that?!

I'll leave you with the amazing lyrics of the Captain Zoom song, but feel free to listen to the audio here.

This is Space Command to Zoom
All systems are go for your message to Erika!
Hey, Erika! It's your birthday!
I'm in charge of the stars and I'm here to say,
Hey, Erika! You're the big star today!

My name is Zoom and I live on the moon
But I came down to earth Just to sing you this tune
‘cause Erika, it's your birthday today!
A present for you I wanted to find, an outerspace creature, a one of a kind!
A wild whop or a kukelchoo, an apple drop or a buzzardstew
Or maybe a 3-eyed tickleshay for your birthday.

Did you ask: "uh, what's a kukelchoo?"
Well, up on the moon it's nothing new but that won't do for you. On your birthday!
I searched behind the clouds and stars I even zoomed my bike to Mars
And met my friend the saucer man and he said:
"Hey Zoom I got the bestest plan! What your friend needs is something new,
So how about a song, just from YOU?"

And so tonight when you're in bed
I'll be singing to you as I zoom overhead
Singing, Erika! Happy Birthday
Singing, Erika! Happy Birthday
Singing, Erika! Happy Birthday, to you!
Happy Birthday, Erika! See you next year!
