Want to Be a Lunar Rover
Challenge to write a song about the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo moon landing today on the anniversary. This is a different point of view from a wanna be car-astronaut. Quick skirmish-like write and recording so marking it as such. Fun facts. My Smart fortwo was manufactured in Hambach France. The (Plymouth) Rambler and (Scottish Aviation) Scamp) were 1960's electric concept cars which could have been kids in the late 60's. Apologies for the (alt language) chorus to anyone who speaks French.
Grandpa was a Rambler and he watched the ’69 landing
50 years ago today
Grandma was a Scamp she missed the whole thing
Walked her own way on a sunny Paris day.
At night I dream I’m watching the universe
From a clear window on the moon
Want to be a lunar rover
Aiming my solar panels
Tracking the path of the sun
Want to be the first cabrio
On the moon
C’mon pick me Cannes I’m Smart enough for the space program
At home I do the maths cause I multiply all the time
And I know how to use a computer for climbing
Roaming craters all the time
I even en Francais
vouloir etre rover lunaire
visee mon panneaux solaires
Montrer do doight le soleil
vouloir etre le premier cabriolet
Repeat Chorus 1 twice
