Parody Song Title:

"Fly Back To The Moon"

Parody Written by:

Laurence Dunne

The Lyrics

Dubya's latest wild and reckless spending borrowed money project ...
Fly back to the moon
let's go play among the stars
and if our kids are so inclined
we'll jet them off to mars
the deficit, can be damned
the nations debt, more than planned

China's getting strong
so we must lead forever more
Mars is what we long for,
All we worship and adore
In other words, Chink's be damned
In other words, mars we'll land

Fly back to the Moon
and let us pray we get there first
before the red flag's planted
let's make sure the commie's cursed
We'll claim the moon, USA
The others will, have to pay

How will we afford
to beat China to the stars
offshore contracts let us
beat the communists to mars
And who's the best, to outsource to?
Hey China man, we love you!!!

It makes wonder what took 32 years to consider flying back to the moon. Great job!

I think this Mars trip thingy is just the whole administrations secret retirement plan if Hillary Clinton should become president in 2008... :-)

Laurence-it's nice to see someone write parodies to an old classic; I agree with what "Mancow" said on the Fox morning show-there's people here on the earth that need houses to live in and to send their kids to school-Mars doesn't seem so important somehow.

The Russians are planning a manned trip to the sun so they can again be first at something. When asked how they will survive they simply said - "Iz easy - Ve go at night! "

Great parody Laurence.

Good job, Lawrence, and I ditto Royce's comment. There's a goldmine of material from the days before parody writing became popular. High Flyin' Fives (and fives to Guy for the ruskie humor).

5-5-5! I can certainly see how this song was chosen for your parody. I think that it's always important to chose songs that others will recognize. If you look at other songs and check out how many comments are left and how many people voted, you can tell...the more well known songs...the more votes. As I check which new songs to look at each day...I only go to those songs where I know the original, parodied song. How else can I possibly judge pacing, etc.? Still, there are just songs like this one...where the main words (the title, or the first line) draw you right to your topic. Nice job.

Very good Laurence - much better than Frank's yawning version!

Wonderful ideas of Bush - now he going to cut Hubble! Also, if I'm not mistaken there was some UN resolution passed in 1967 forbiding governments from owning land in space, but Bush has already shown that the UN doesn't matter. Great parody too!!!!!
