To the Moon & Back / Doctor Who Filk

Originally By Savage Garden, rewritten by ailaG.

Based on S05E01: The Eleventh Hour.

She's taking her time, making up the reasons

Why he left her all alone that night

Guess she knows, from the smiles and the look in their eyes

Everyone's got a theory about the Scottish one

They're saying,

Someone must've hurt her such, that

Amy never makes sense much

She talks about a man who eats fish and custard

But somewhere in a private place

She's packed a bag for outer space

And now she's waiting for the Raggedy Doctor to come

'Cuz he said to her

I will fly to the moon and back and I'll be,

And I'll be five minutes

Gonna take you on my magic ship, come along

I will just be five minutes

She can remember the night she sat and waited

To leave her back yard and real life behind

All her shrinks, bitten for a reason

They said he only lived in her mind

She says, he

Travels all through time and space,

And talks at such a crazy pace

About a library that swims in a blue box

So Amy wait another five, the

Funny man's bound to arrive

Stop your wall from whispering scary things in the night

(It even talked to him)

He's saying

I will fly to the moon and back and I'll be,

And I'll be five minutes

Gonna show you some amazing things, come along

I will just be five minutes

Hold on... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Santa helped her out that night

Brought the Doctor, set things right

But left her waiting all night long for her saviour

(The) ship just needed some repair

Girl who's waiting, don't despair

The days are coming that you will never ever forget

(and he said to her)

[chorus (normal)] (skipped in the karaoke version & in link above)

I will fly to the moon and back and I'll be,

And I'll be five minutes

All of time and space, so come along, miss Pond

I shall return for you... five minutes!


Bonus: Add "Maybe more" at the end, instead of the gibberish in the original song.

Self-nitpicking: The 5 minutes were the first time around, the moon - second time (after the whole prisoner zero story)
