The First Girl on the Moon

Original Version 3:11

She was the first girl on the moon
She didn’t compromise
When she took off that cold afternoon
Heading for the northern skies

I told her I could come
That I could come along

She was the first girl on the moon
I think I was her only friend
She brought her raygun an old harpoon
Just in case of accidents

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she didn’t let me come along
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

She was the first girl on the moon
Standing tall, flag in hand
She looked around humming a tune
The strangest song known to man

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she never let me come along
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
