All of the astronauts
Champagne in plastic cups
Waiting for the big hero to show

Outside the door he stands
His head in his hands
And his heart in his throat

What can he tell them now?
Sorry I let you down
Sorry, it wasn't quite true

But don't get hung up on it
Just solider on with it
And good luck with shooting the moon

Shooting the moon
Shooting the moon, the moon
Shooting the moon

All of the principals
Generals, admirals
And the podium lit with the spotlight

The crowd buzzes quietly
Waiting expectantly
Like it's opening night

What can he tell them now?
Sorry I let you down
Sorry it wasn't quite true

But don't get hung up on it
Just solider on with it
And good luck with shooting the moon

Shooting the moon
Shooting the moon, the moon
Shooting the moon
