To the Moon, Alice! To the Moon!

The Final Trip

They stepped upon the moon
In nineteen sixty-nine,
Everything was looking good,
Everything was doing fine,

One small step for man,
One giant leap for mankind,
Then Neil and Buzz went off to see
Just what they might could find,

They bounced around on the Rover,
Picked up some rocks and dust,
Then jumped back in that Lunar-Lander
And took off for Earth or bust,

Near fifty years have come and gone
And don’t it seem quite strange,
We’re still fighting wars and such
And not much has seemed to change,

Wouldn’t it be nice one day,
No matter which party makes you swoon,
That we could put them all on board
Shoot them to the moon.
