​Witnesses' Waltz

This song is by Julia Ecklar and appears on the compilation Minus Ten and Counting (1983).

Come along Harry, and Marry and Joe
Pack up some lunches and everyone go
Fill up the camper, drive down to White Sands
And we'll pour the champagne when the space shuttle lands

Twelve-thousand, half million, million and more
Picnicking out on the warm waters shore
Nobody knows that we're always at hand
To watch all the spaceships that take off and land

It's the loveliest show on this earth that you'll see
It's living and real, not just tape-on-TV
So come to Canaveral, and bring lots of beer
When the space ship takes off we'll all stand up and cheer

Twelve-thousand, half million, million and more
Picnicking out on the warm waters shore
Nobody knows that we're always at hand
To watch all the spaceships that take off and land

Politicians ignores us, the media to, but if they don't notice, the ships always do
See her landing so lightly, you'd swear that she cares
That she flies on two wings, and a good million prayers

Twelve-thousand, half million, million and more
Picnicking out on the warm waters shore
Nobody knows that we're always at hand
To watch all the spaceships that take off and land

So come let's go witness the take off today
While the worlds biggest beach party cheers her away
We'll bang the drums proudly, and blow on the conch
Leave a sign on your door that just says "Out to Launch"

Twelve-thousand, half million, million and more
Picnicking out on the warm waters shore
Nobody knows that we're always at hand
To watch all the spaceships that take off and land
