Lippy kids on the corner again
Though I never perfected that simian stroll

Build a rocket boys!

And cursed on cue
Stealing booze and outlawing hungry kisses
Nobody knew me at home anymore
Build a rocket boys!
Lippy kids on the corner again
And I never effected that simian stroll, no
Do they know those days are golden?
Build a rocket boys!
One long June I came down from the trees
You were freshly painted angel walking on walls

Build a rocket boys!
