Went to buy me a paper
At the local newsstand
And then I heard them
Laugh and say

"Look, they're gonna go flying
Way up to the moon now
Hey, what's it good for anyway?"
So I said, "Fellas
Like to ask you a thing if I may"

"What about Livingstone?
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed
Their lives to lead the way?"

"Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Traveling up the Nile?
Putting themselves on test?
Didn't that help the rest?
Wasn't it worth it then?
What about Livingstone?"

And all of those fellas
At the local newsstand
Didn't know what to answer
Or what to say

So I told them about him
That he was just like
One of those spacemen in his way
And if you laugh at them
Then there's only a thing I can say

"What about Livingstone?
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed
Their lives to lead the way?"

"Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Traveling up the Nile?
Putting themselves on test?
Didn't that help the rest?
Wasn't it worth it then?"

What about all those men
Who have sacrificed
Their lives to lead the way?"
