"In The Record Book" is a song from "Super Sonic Jay Jay". It's performed by Jay Jay, with occasional backups by Tracy and Herky, as he flies through the air using Savannah's supersonic jet fuel. The song starts out with a sense of excitement and optimism, but as Jay Jay starts to go out of control near the end, it degenerates into chaos.

This song serves as the thirteenth track of Disk 2 on the album "Jay Jay the Jet Plane: Musical Parade".


Jay Jay: We have contact!

Runnin' down the runway,
I'm headin' for the sky.
I found a fun way,
To fly fast and hi-i-i-i-igh!
Tracy and Herky: Let's take a look...

Jay Jay: I wanna be...
In the record book!
In that record book!

No matter how it happens,
I'm thinkin' maybe I might...
Set a new record,
For the fastest fli-i-i-i-ight!
Tracy and Herky: Yeah, then they'll write...

Jay Jay: Jay Jay...
Had the fastest flight!
Had the fastest fl -- YIIIIIKES!!!
Tracy and Herky: Oops, maybe not quite...
Something's not right...


  • The phrase, "We have contact," is a shortened version of the term, "Houston, we have contact," which is used generally in flights to the moon.
