The Lyrics

Usually when I write a parody, its too fresh in the minds of people to be funny (e.g. "Binnie Laden and the Jets"), but I think enough time has passed on this one...
A DAY IN THE LIFE (of a shuttle)

I heard the news today, oh boy
About some astronauts who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

They blew their mind out in a shuttle
They didnt notice that the sky had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen this sight before
Nobody was really sure
If it was Challenger once more

I saw a film today, oh boy
The Columbia had just blown to bits
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way to the kitchen and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my hidden stash and had a smoke
Somebody spoke and I fell into a dream

I read the news today, oh boy
4,000 pieces spread across Texas
And though debris was rather fried
They had to find it all
Now they know how many wrecks it takes
To see that NASA died
I'd love to turn you on.....

"but I think enough time has passed on this one..." maybe not, judging from the votes. a good rule of thumb is to wait ten years after a tragedy to try to parody it. not bad, just way too soon
