Starblazers Theme, 20 October 2006
Author: Sean Soo from Hong Kong

Lyrics for Starblazers Opening Theme (1st Season)

We're off to outer space We're leaving Mother Earth To save the human race Our Star Blazers

Searching for a distant star Heading off to Iscandar Leaving all we love behind Who knows what danger we'll find?

We must be strong and brave Our home we've got to save If we don't in just one year Mother Earth will disappear

Fighting with the Gamilons We won't stop until we've won Then we'll return and when we arrive The Earth will survive With our Star Blazers

Opeming Theme for Second Season

We're off to outer space We're leaving mother Earth To save the human race Our Star Blazers

A cry for help, a desperate plight Makes our Star Force reunite As we rush to meet our fate The Comet Empire awaits

We must be strong and brave To stop its evil ways If Zordar's plot should work He'll destroy the universe

We'll fight the Comet Empire Battle through the raining fire Filled with the hope that Earth will survive We'll keep peace alive with Our Star Blazers
