Space Shanty
(Stan Kelly)

Well, Daniel Dare was a pilot bold
And he went to the moon so I've been told.
And he found them craters stuffed with gold,
Keep her on the orbit, son.
Whip jamboree, whip jamboree
Momentum equals sigma mv
Them three-legged gals are the ones for me.
Keep her on the orbit, son.


As we sailed into the Lunar base
The man in the moon had a smile on his face
He shouted this warning to the human race
Keep her on the orbit, son.
Whip jamboree, whip jamboree
Momentum equals sigma mv
Them three-legged gals are the ones for me
Keep her on the orbit, son.


And now it's back to the Earth again
There's only one thing that gives me pain
To leave them yalla gals on the lunar plain
Keep her on the orbit, son.
Whip jamboree, whip jamboree,
Fiddle yer cathodes and straddle yer probes
And we'll beam right back to the Earth we love
Keep her on the orbit, son.


Pretty close to what I remember!! It was written before Yuri Gagarin became the first ever spaceman...
