The Lyrics

I teach an astronomy class for a community college, and love to write/sing parodies for my students. This one describes some of the trials that Wernher Von Braun probably had to go through when testing out his new rocket designs.
Hey, Von Braun, you've got a lovely rocket.
Looks like it will climb into the sky.
But it's sad, it won't be lifting off,
For I'm afraid that it's a danger to my field.

Hey, Von Braun, you've got a lovely rocket.
Look at all those tubes of gasoline.
Just one match, and a strong gust of wind
And your machine will be burning up all my fields.

That small engine
Carries quite a load,
But, if it burns, then
I'm afraid it'll explode.

Hey, Von Braun, you've got a lovely rocket. (lovely rocket)
It's too bad that I will tear it down. (tear it down)
But I must, it's only for the best,
I've got to save my house and protect all my fields.

Hey, Von Braun, you had a lovely rocket. (lovely rocket)
Hey, Von Braun, you had a lovely rocket. (lovely rocket)
Hey, Von Braun, you had a lovely rocket. (lovely rocket)
Hey, Von Braun, you had a lovely rocket. (lovely rocket)
