I've found a bunch of these scattered around the forum, and I believe they deserve to be consolidated into 1 place.

I've seen this one by Sather....
Bong in the winter and blue motor cases
Children at launches with bright smiling faces
AQM Jayhawks with big orange wings
These are a few of my favorite things


4F black powder in Wisconsin state parks
Thermite igniters in CTI skidmarks
18 inch parachutes tied on with strings
These are a few of my favorite things


(chorus)
When the fins strip
When the chute burns
When I zipper G-10
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I go launch again


PVC tripods and fields without big trees
Wading in water way up over my knees
White Lightning propellant and dirty O-rings
These are a few of my favorite things


Stainless steel quick links and launch pads in straight rows
Aerotech reloads and giant mosquitos
N-powered mach shreds and gravel paint dings
These are a few of my favorite things


(chorus)

I've seen this one by JStarStar and ThirstyBarbarian:
Ogive me a home
With a pointy nose cone
Where my motors and engines all light
And if you build it right
with an LED light
You can still launch your rockets at night

Home, home on the range!
Where all of the rocketeers play
And never is heard a discouraging word
Except "CATO" and "lawn dart" all day
If a CATO occurs
It's a problem for sure
And your rocket will probably be trash
It's a sad episode
To see your motor explode
And it costs you some serious cash.
Are there any others out there?

Deep Space Offl (Puns & Jokes) *IS* a themed rocket parody. OFFl is pronounced "Awful" as the last letter is a lowercase "L", and not an exclamation point. The entire rocket's decal is covered in one pun or joke after another. It was my response to all the Mega Mosquitoes that were being built after Estes dropped the price on them, and all those build threads started popping up. There's a possibility that it may have been inspired by ThirstyBarbarian's crack about using DEET to spray one of those rockets. I thought, with all these Mosquitoes, we're going to need deep woods... no... Deep Space OFF! to keep them at bay. OFF! rapidly evolved into OFFl when I realized the awful possibilities it posed.

The NARHAMs section newsletter Zog-43 has published many rocket songs and song collections over the years. Some of them may be online at http://www.narhams.org/zog-43 but the collection is far from complete.

I do not have a copy of the lyrics for "PD in the Sky with Mylar" or "Col Kuhn's Lonely Rocketeers' Club Band".
