Figure out what each line is referring to, put them together, and then sing it loud for all to hear.

I create and repair, but don't often destroy. You use my eye but I cannot see.
Who? Me. When? Now. Why? Because. Where? ...
A man who looks after the pennies, is very wise indeed.
Look into the night sky, a blinking light you will see, its not a UFO, but the __, yippee!
Once you've figured out the next line, tell me the name of the important women in his life.
This man hates figs and Romans.
On Earth, we have weight, but in space, we don't. However, our __ remains constant.
