And though they were sad,
They rescued everyone
They lifted up the sun
A spoonful weighs a ton

Giving more than they had
The process had begun
A million came from one
The limits now were none

Being drunk on their plan,
They lifted up the sun

Forcing it off with their hands
The trap door became undone
