Lyrics: Countdown


Hello, friends
I am Albert, the astronaut
They're counting down
Rocket engines are getting hot
When the time is right
They'll blast me into the atmosphere
Man, I'm dressed so nice
But I don't know what's going on in here

Listen, friends
To the things I want you to hear
The transmission's weak
Hope my voice is still coming in clear
The time is right
For me to meet my destiny
Don't worry for my life
This is the way it has to be

They said I'll be the first monkey in space
It's such an honor to be in this place
I'd like to thank the President, the cabinet, my monkey friends
I'll never see you again

Now, my friends
As time for the liftoff is drawing near
I want to thank you
For all you did to get me here
My human friends
They swear that I am a pioneer
But I don't understand
Why they don't put themselves in here

They want me to be the first monkey in space
It's such an honor to be in this place
I'd like to thank the President, the cabinet, my monkey friends
I'll never see you again

The folks at NASA know just as well as me
This voyage could be suicide
This stolen glory is a small step for man
When it really is a giant leap for monkey kind
