"I Wanna Be" is the opening song from Starship sung by the characters Bug (Joey Richter), Roach (Brant Cox) and the cast. It is the first track on the soundtrack album.

The song was also the opening number performed on The Space Tour and appears on the album and DVD.


Bug: I wanna be a Starship Ranger I wanna have the things they've got I could be a Starship Ranger But there's just one little thing they are I'm not

All of my life I've pictured them out there Keeping the peace in outer space I may not be up there with 'em But I've got what it takes

I've got a hunger and thirst for adventure I wanna travel the galaxy The future is now, so I don't see how The time isn't right for me

And I'll admit It's all in my head But who says it can't be real? They may be far away But I can safely say It doesn't change the way I feel

I wanna be a Starship Ranger Even if it might sound strange Maybe now, I'm not a Ranger But all of that is right about to change

Roach: All of your life you've had your head stuck Up in the gaseous atmosphere Don't forget that dirt is solid And clouds can disappear

When you're an insect, you have a purpose Like it or not, from a fly to a flea Need I remind you, leave that stuff behind So you can find what yours can be?

'Cause the needs Of the many bugs... They outweigh the few And everybody knows It's just the way it goes And there's nothing you can do

You wanna be a Starship Ranger? Discover worlds far and near Who gives a crap about Starship Rangers? The greatest life to live is found right here

(Spoken) Come on! Last one there is a delicious rotten egg!

Chorus: (Alternating) Dirt eater! Exoskeleton polisher! I wanna build honeycombs! The bug that ruins your picnic! A fly on the wall!

We've all got a job to do And it's how we all survive By giving our lives to the hive...

'Cause the needs Of the many bugs... They outweigh the few

Bug: I know today's the day

Chorus: Today's the day

Bug: (Chorus:) I will find what I'm meant to do... (We will find what we're meant to do...)

Bug: The queen will surely see I'm not like anyone else She'll take one look and know my rightful calling She'll understand that I just can't be Living my life for the hive

And I can finally...

Chorus: Finally...

Bug: Know what it's like to be alive...

Chorus: I wanna be something that can Serve the greater good of our race I'll do whatever I can To make our world a better place

Bug: If only I could get to outer space!

I wanna be a Starship Ranger It doesn't matter at all where I'm from So look out, Starship Rangers Cause here I am...

Chorus: Here I am...

Bug: ...And here I come!

Chorus: (Alternating) Dirt eater! Exoskeleton polisher! I wanna build honeycombs! The bug that ruins your picnic!

All: It's what I wanna be!
