The Lyrics

Endeavour flew her maiden voyage
In May of the year "Ninety-two"
This shuttle for space..Challenger, did replace,
When that ship exploded and lost all it's crew
Key parts from Discovery, Atlantis,
Were used to assemble this bird
Eighteen years it would live, great service to give
But there now comes a time when farewell is the word..

And so the fat lady sings for Endeavour,
Endeavour's endeavor was then
Now astronaut men..won't hang from it on a tether
Nor astronaut women..take space journeys with the men
Here's to it's long life, so faithful
No more sightings reflective at dawn
Flown piggy back to a Cal. science center,
Forever Endeavour is gone

The last pilot, Commander Mark Kelly
Gabby Gifford's husband, well known
Cargo'd in the bay..a high detect cosmic ray
On a sixteen day journey, to the space station flown
Everything on it's last flight went flawless
In history, it now, earns a place
Val'dictory address..legacy to impress
For logging one-twenty-five million miles out in space

And so the fat lady sings for Endeavour
Endeavour's endeavor was then
Now astronaut men..won't work from it on a tether
Nor astronaut women..take space journeys with the men
Here's to it's long life, so faithful
It has finished it's duty on high
And shall remain in a Cal. science center,
Forever Endeavour, goodbye

No more trips in space forever and ever,
Forever Endeavour
Forever Endeavour
Forever Endeavour, goodbye

Very nicely done. I'm just a bit verklempt right now. I cast my three 5's for this from my desk at Johnson Space Center.

Some country singer should use your parody. That's in the spirit of country music.

Appreciate it, Doc...and 2Eagle...The original was country, so my aim was to maintain the spirit...I hail from the midwest..so I've always been grass roots country..preference is more for classic and than modern..because that's what I grew up listening to..the old earthy originals..like Tex Ritter, Ernest Tubb, Hank Thompson, and Roy Acuff

Agreeing with 2Eagle, definitely some country spirit. A little sad about the Endeavour's passing, but glad it helped further space exploration and science.
