The Lyrics

Original ©1961 by Johnny Mercer (lyrics) and Henry Mancini (music)
Moon rover, first time in awhile,
Exploring it in style today.
Oh, they savor their hard labor,
To space now they’re going, their fact’ries will stay.

Polluters, tapping a new world, they found another world to spy.
They’re after the same selfish ends, while other countries bend
To keep them as a friend, fair-weather ally.

Moon rover, China’s now in space,
U.S. might lose the race real soon.
Oh, trade cheaters, Falun beaters,
To space now they’re going, exploring the moon.

Polluters, tapping a new world, they found another world to spy.
They’re after the same selfish ends, while other countries bend
To keep them as a friend, fair-weather ally.
Moon rover, game over, swoon!

I caught the reference to beating members of the Falun Gong religious movement. You don't hear much about that anymore. I don't think it's because the persecution has stopped, either.

Good to see you back, Mr. McVey. Nice summation of China's 'fair' trade practices and their 'loving' treatment of dissenters. Gotta love a double-standard.

To Deja vu - yes, same idea, though of course we are referring to completely different moon rovers. And your was good too!
