Lyrics

Moon By Way of Minnesota

We're going to the Moon By Way of Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon, that's where we want to be,
We'll sing a little tune of lovely Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon, no lunatics are we,

We're going to the Moon By Way of Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon, via St Louis Park,
A lovely afternoon to drive to Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon By Way of Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon, and there we'll disembark,

We've traveled through a million million particles,
We can be amorphous here,
Minnesota's halfway to the moon,
But unlike the moon it has atmosphere,

Moon...By Way of Minnesota,
We're going to the Moon, with stops along the way,
It seems so opportune to stay in Minnesota,
Not Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota,
To the Moon By Way of Minnesota!
