$ Uncle Sam's on Mars $

Shoals of dead fish float on the lakes,

but Uncle Sam's on Mars

And scientists go on making the same mistakes,

but Uncle Sam's on Mars

No one down here knows how to pull the brakes,

but Uncle Sam's on Mars

Uncle

Sam's

on

Mars...


>> Listen to <  Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, he's on Mars   >UNCLE SAM <


Layers of smoke in the atmosphere have made the earth too hot to bear

Earth will be a desert soon - America has left the moon


Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, he's on Mars


What are they doing out there, Uncle Sam's up there, he's doing it

What is he up to...what is he up to...he's looking for life


Is there any life out there?

He's digging for dreams



in the red sands...
He got his bucket and



spade in his left hand...
He's looking for dreams...

>>He's looking for life <<

>> Listen to > (Recording of Nixon's speech to Armstrong and Aldrin): >> SAM, Richard & BOB <

This certainly must be the most exciting telephone

call ever made here on Earth.

I just can't tell you how proud we all are.

For every American this has to be

the proudest moment of their lives.

And for people all over the world, I'm sure they too

join with us in recognizing what a tremendous

achievement this is....

Is there any life out there?
life out there... ...is there any... life out there...
...to wipe out...        ...to grind down
Life out there
V
to destroy
...life out there... ...to finish.... Life out there
V
to stamp out
Is there ANY
Is there


ANY
?
LIFE

out there?

I hope you brought your credit card with you, and

I hope you know how to drive on these long, lonely

freeways and intersections we've got up here.

We've got two cars in the garage, two cars in the garage,

and drum-majorettes with batons twirling,

and white ankle socks on Sundays.

We've got stripes on the stars and Uncle Sam's on:

!! MARS !!
