On back of single it reads:-
Sarah Brightman, 18 years old, is regarded as one of the greatest English  talents of the last years. Together with her dancing group Hot Gossip she is seen very often in the Kenny Everett Video Show. They are the regular dancers and singers of this show. Sarah has just begun to write her own material but this song “I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper” was written by the guys who years ago had a world-wide hit with their self-penned song “Barbedos”

Lyrics

I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper

 (Written by Calvert, Hughes) Released 1978 Aroila Records
thanks to Joe for missing lyrics on Starship Trooper & Do Do Do

Arcaida X-ray X-ray delta niner niner zero.
This is Starfleet control, You are clear to go
hyper space, Acknowledge,
Affirmative, star com We have situation go,
Niner niner zero, roger, You’re looking good for trans-flight.

I lost my heart to a starship trooper Oh
I lost my heart to a starship trooper Oh…

Oh Doctor Strange Won’t you be my lover?
You’re the best thing That I’ve ever discovered
Flash Gordon’s left me, He’s gone to the stars
And evil Darth Vader he’s been banished to Mars
Tell me, Captain Strange Do you feel my devotion?
Or are you like a ‘droid devoid of emotion?
Encounters one and two Are not enough for me
What my body needs Is close encounter three!!

Chorus:-
I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper,
Flashing light in hyper space Fighting for the Federation
Hand in hand we’ll conquer space

Listen, Captain Strange What’s our destination?
The scanners seem to Indicate a small deviation
Static on the “con” It’s Star Fleet Command
Requesting your position . . . it’s their final demand
You’re intentions are known They’ve found out at least
So if you’re gonna take me please make it fast
Touch me, Feel me Do what you will,
I want to feel That electric thrill. 

CHORUS:-
I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper,
Flashing light in hyper space Fighting for the Federation
Hand in hand we’ll conquer space

Niner niner zero This is Star Comm We got a problem
On your vector. Request status check Over Oh, baby… Arcadia ,
This is strategy control , You have course deviation, At five mark
six, Acknowledge (I love you… ) Arcaida We show condition
red Confirm . . .Love me… What’s going on out there??

Oh… I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper
Flashing light in hyper space
Fighting for the Federation
Hand in hand we’ll conquer space
I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper Oh…

My space suit is lying On control room
Pulse rate increasing as the heat factor soars
Take me make me feel the force
Ignore the computer we’re locked on course

I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper
Flashing light in hyper space,
Fighting for the Federation
Hand in hand we’ll conquer space,

I lost my heart to a star-ship trooper
Flashing light in hyper space
Fighting for the Federation
Hand in hand we’ll conquer space

REPEAT AND FADE THE ABOVE WITH
Niner niner zero – be advised,
you have serious vector deviation,
I repeat, Serious vector deviation.
Arcadia, Niner niner zero, Do you copy?
This is Starfleet Control to all ships in sector five,
be advised, Arcadia niner niner zero is OFF COURSE.
All should ????
Starship Arcadia, this is Starfleet Control…

DO DO DO

(written By T Clark, B Prebble) Released 1978 Aroila Records

b side to I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper

When you’re down you can feel so low
When you’re up everything is go
But at night looking in a glass time will pass.
I know music can bring you pain
So I’m gonna win again.
Gonna stick to my plan and do the best I can.

I hear the rhythm of the rain on my windowpane.
(I hear the rhythm, I hear the rhythm)
I stand alone with only dreams that might have been.

Do Do Do

Well I’m looking for love and hope
Cos I know that I just can’t cope
With a kinky sponge and soap on a rope

I hear the rhythm, I hear the rhythm)
When you’re down you can feel so low
When you up everything is go

Do DO DO DO DO DO
Do DO DO I hear the rhythm
REPEAT TO FADE
