The Lyrics

In case you didn't know, back in the 50s the US Air Force wanted to detonate a nuclear bomb on the moon. According to reports, officials believed such an act would 'boost' public morale in light of the Soviet Union's early lead in space exploration.
Bomb ba ba bomb
Ba Bomb ba bomb bomb
Ba ba bomb ba ba bomb
Ba ba bang a bang bang
Ba ba boom a boom boom

Ka-boom moon go boom
hit ta hit ta hit
Boom boom boom go moon
Hit ta hit ta hit
Boom boom boom go moon
Hit ta hit ta hit

Bomb ba ba bomb
Ba Bomb ba bomb bomb
Ba ba bomb ba ba bomb
Ba ba bang a bang bang
Ba ba boom a boom boom

Nuke moon
We think your glowing is doomed
You need atomical spark
That brings a thing that goes boom

Nuke moon
No lunar cops to impede chore
You need more craters, so therefore
Some holes, we’re hoping we’ll make more

We’ll launch our rocketry
A gift
We give thee
Ten megatons
We’ll send to greenish globe

It might sound nutty
Nukin’ cheese
A poor scheme
But better there
And not near our zip code

Boom moon
When blast on you is bestowed
You know that boom’s just a start
There'll be more bombs to explode

Bomb ba ba bomb
Ba Bomb ba bomb bomb
Ba ba bomb ba ba bomb
Ba ba bang a bang bang
Ba ba boom a boom boom

Ka-boom moon go boom
hit ta hit ta hit
Boom boom boom go moon
Hit ta hit ta hit
Boom boom boom go moon
Hit ta hit ta hit

Bomb ba ba bomb
Ba Bomb ba bomb bomb
Ba ba bomb ba ba bomb
Ba ba bang a bang bang
Ba ba boom a boom boom

Boom moon

Out of orbit. Those doo-wop throwaways actually mean something here. Pondering the consequences is scary, though.

The moon is the safest place to blow off fireworks....The world should take all their nukes there and it would be one hell of a show.....and we all would be the happier.

Sounds like the scheme to dig a new Panama Canal using atomic bombs. As recently as the 1970's I recall an atomic bomb being used to unlock a deposit of natural gas. Of course, the gas was contaminated with radiation, so it could not be used, but that didn't seem to matter to the kooks with the big firecracker.

LL- Happy accident with the throwaway lines from the original.
Dave- It would be a safer world for certain.
Patrick- We humans can't resist blowing crap up. The bigger the boom, the happier we are. Nevermind the consequences.

Thanks for the comments AFW, Leouh, Jonathan, and Meriadoc.
@Meriadoc - Not on my nefarious planetoid? No one marries nuclear podiatrists? Nominal ordnance minimizes noncompliant polygamy?
