Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I'm talking to the Prez
While I'm sitting on the moon
Not hearing what he says
Cause it's time for walkies soon

I tell them that we're ready
They affirm it's A-OK
And so, I scramble down the ladder
But before I touch the ground I say

It's a small step for Apollo guys, a small step
But it's a big schlep for you other guys, a big schlep*

I swing my lucky club, hit the ball
Goes a mile or two
I got a picnic lunch I can eat
(Just a tube of goo)
Yum yum

I'm strolling down the lunar plain, no returning yet
The sky's so starry
It's a view of heaven very few will get
But I can see...

A great day for Apollo guys, a great day
But it's a long way for you other guys, a long way

A great day for Apollo guys, a great day
I said it's okay for Apollo guys, it's okay
It's been a fun stay for Apollo guys, yeah
I said it's one way for Apollo guys, yeah

I'm eating cherry Pez
While I'm sitting on the moon...

*schlep: Yiddish for walk or trudge.

Thanks! I like that you used the word "good" instead of "bad."

Not sure why this one has got such a negative reaction? 4 people 1-bombed this? I just don't get it. It's not controversial, it's well-paced and it's a funny parody of a terrible original song (Can't stand those "Ay, Ay, Ay" parts (sound like a bunch of seagulls singing this song). Very good parody here.

Thanks! I think this got posted on a day when the 1-bombers were out in force. At least I hope that's why it got so many!

Not a huge fan of the OS but I love the title switch! Nice work!

Is it odd that I thought this was about Apollo Creed from Rocky?
Porfle Popnecker - December 27, 2011 - Report this comment
Only if you still thought that after you read it!
Nathan Forester - December 27, 2011 - Report this comment
Well then...no, I like it though.

(Ages) Great work...suddenly feel inspired about Neil Armstrong after reading this...as I sang your parody, I saluted the whole time. Well, it's one 5 steps for 5, and 5 giant leaps for mankind!!!

Thanks, I'm glad you had that reaction--I feel the same way about Neil and the Apollo guys too!

(Ages5) The 1-bombers are probably moon landing conspiracy theorists. Great parody here, even though I don't know that much about the moon landing (I'm more aware of the controversy surrounding it, like Buzz Aldrin punching that conspiracy nut in the face). 555!

Thanks, and go Buzz!

(AofA) Personally, I like the OS. This was paced to perfection and I love the originality, I thought it was good.
D-Mon - January 08, 2012 - Report this comment
(AofA) I also did a parody of this OS, it's a good song (IMO). This was pretty good, I thought it could've been funnier, but that's just me being nit-picky.

Ages...not super funny, but a nice little tribute to such a monumental moment in history! Well written, and a fun read. :)
