NEIL ARMSTRONG

Tune: Oh Dear What Can The Matter Be?


Neil Armstrong went to the moon

Flew in a spaceship, not a balloon

Saturn Five went off in a zoooom

Fourteenth of July


“The Eagle has landed”, that’s what he said

When the capsule came down, heavy as lead

Everyone watching was late for their bed

Fourteenth of July


A fifth of the world watched it on TV

Moscow and Tokyo and Crathiee

To keep awake they drank coffee and tea

Fourteenth of July


“One small step for man”, he spoke so fine

“A giant leap for all mankind”

Up in the sky the Earth did shine

Fourteenth of July


Buzz Aldrin and Neil went for a walk

They put up a flag, the viewers did gawk

Buzz Lightyear was jealous, he watched from New York

Fourteenth of July

THE BEAST FROM THE EAST

Tune: Kalinka


As white as a snow leopard

An tough as ice

How dare you dare?

The stuff of a nightmare


The Beast from the East, what can it be?

A hare or a leopard or an eagle ir a bee?


As white as a cloud, or The Snowman in the sky

Very unpleasant and trampling on high


People who were driving had to stay in their cars

Waiting for the Beast to roar “Au revoir”


The TV and the radio said “Stay in your homes”

What kind of beast was it? We’ll ask Sherlock Holmes


As white as a winter hare, as fierce as a bear

As white as my teeth, as white as deeth


We’re begging for simmer

We’re praying for simmer

We’re calling to simmer, “Come soon!”


The beast, the beast, the beast from the east (go away!)

The beast, the beast, the beast from the east (go away!)

The beast, the beast, the beast from the east (go away!)
