0:48:070:48:09

I must go down to the seas again.

I should be on holiday, not being propelled through space

0:48:110:48:15

0:48:340:48:37

0:48:400:48:42

Everyone, on the lookout for aliens that rhyme.

0:48:420:48:46

Sea.

0:48:460:48:47

Bee.

0:48:480:48:49

Hand-in-hand along the sand

0:49:130:49:17

Running and running and running

0:49:170:49:20

Under the sky, with clouds up high

0:49:200:49:23

Sunning and sunning and sunning

0:49:230:49:25

Then out with a shout Crabs come out

0:49:250:49:29

Jumping and jumping and jumping

0:49:290:49:32

We run far, playing at cars

0:49:320:49:36

Bumping and bumping and bumping

0:49:360:49:40

At the end of the day No time to stay

0:49:400:49:44

Slowing and slowing and slowing

0:49:440:49:47

Crabs, goodbye Sky, goodbye

0:49:470:49:51

Going and going and going.

0:49:510:49:54

Now that's what I call a holiday!

0:49:550:49:57

Oh! Well if it's a holiday you want, let's activate the soundascope!

0:49:570:50:03

0:50:480:50:53

Fast! Fast, fast, fast, fast! Fast! Fast! Fast! Save me, Commander!

0:50:530:50:58

I like this one.

0:51:420:51:44

I wonder how many rhyming pairs we'll see this time.

0:51:460:51:50

Sea. Bee.

0:51:500:51:52

There they are. They rhyme.

0:51:520:51:54

0:54:260:54:31

Said he was going shopping with my Auntie Pam to buy strawberry jam.

0:54:310:54:34

Never mind about your Auntie Pam and her strawberry jam!

0:54:340:54:38

What matters now is are we on course, Ditty?

0:54:380:54:41

Oh, yes, Commander. The rhymehole has boosted the rhyme in our tanks.

0:54:410:54:46

The rhyme-nav says we're on course for a climbing centre in Edinburgh.

0:54:460:54:51

-You've lost me.

-Not all earthlings are like you, Professor Poet.

0:54:510:54:55

They like active holidays.

Here you can learn to climb, abseil...

Professor Poet's holiday plans are put on hold when the team pick up a signal of rhyme activity from children in Edinburgh and blast off on a journey through the universe of words to join them.

As they zoom through space they pass a poem by Michael Rosen and have to try and rhyme their way out of a rhymehole full of space junk.
