    Listen to my story. Got two tales to tell.
    One of fallen glory. One of vanity.
    The world's roof was raging, but we were looking fine;
    'Cause we built that thing and it grew wings,
    in Nineteen-Fifty-Nine.

    Wisdom was a teapot; Pouring from above.
    Desolation angels
    Served it up with Love.
    Ignitin'[g strife] like every form of light,
    then moved by bold design,
    slid in that thing and it grew wings,
    in Nineteen-Fifty-Nine.

    ****************
    It was Blood, shining in the Sun;
    First: Freedom!
    Speeding the american claim:
    Freedom; Freedom; Freedom; Freedom!
    ******************

    China was the tempest; [And] Madness overflowed.
    [The] Lama was a young man,
    and [he] watched his world in flames.
    Taking Glory down by the edge of clouds;
    It was a cryin'[g] shame.
    Another lost horizon. Tibet the fallen star.
    Wisdom and compassion Crushed, in the land of Shangri-La.
    But in the land of the Impala, honey, well,
    we were lookin' Fine,
    'cause we built that thing and it grew wings;
    In Nineteen-Fifty-Nine.
    'Cause we built that thing and it grew wings;
    In Nineteen-Fifty-Nine.

    It was the best of times, it's [was] the worst of times;
    In 1959; 1959; 1959; 1959; 1959; 1959; 1959.
    It was the best of times; It was the worst of times.
    [In] Nineteen-Fifty-Nine.
