The Lyrics

A Kerbal Space Program/NASA parody
Solid booster, delta wing
Heat shield, gimbal ring
Supersonic, rapid unplanned
disassembly
Canard, rudder, elevator
Solar panel, radiator
Northern mohole, southern mohole
Instability

Rendezvous, aileron
RCS, clamp-o-tron
Oxidizer, kerosene
And dimethyl hydrazine
Chamber pressure, corkscrew
Rocket, cockpit, Eeloo
Kilopascal, engine failure
Emergency landing!

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater

Duna rover donut
Flight computer input
Megajoule, liquid fuel
Bring a big snack
Zero-g, gravity
Atmospheric entry
Stall speed, airfoil
Angle of attack
G-force, turbojet
Tank of monopropellant
Kilometer Gilly jump
Open cycle turbopump
Capsule, tailplane
Hybrid rocket fuel grain
Parachute, pressure suit
Rolling scissor, flat spin

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater

MechJeb, delta-v
Terminal velocity
Navball, solar sail
Transonic vapor trail
Battery, fatal falls
Vacuum bag of meatballs
Stock vessel modified
Autopilot override

Hypersonic intake
Skydiving, lithobrake
Thermal tile, Hohmann
Afterburning turbofan
Core stage, cargo bay
Orbital death ray
Matt Lowne, Nexter, Manley
Hazard-ish and Danny

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater

Hydroplane, T-tail
Surface scanner, airmail
Minmus, Moho
Liftoff is a no-go
Parking orbit, aerospike
Magic boulder over Ike
Fuel, check
Snacks, check
Asteroid redirect
Prograde, retrograde
Squeeze bag of lemonade
Service bay, EVA
What else do I have to say?

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater

Separatron, ISP
Wernher in the VAB
Mün shot, hatch blocked
Engine start, liftoff
Seven-year round trip
Terror on the spaceship
Engine testing was a blast
We lost 50 of our staff
Deadly diving into Jool
Ill-fated midair refuel
Tried to land, mission canned
Then I blew up the pad
All the missions that I’ve tried
All the pilots that have died
All their names escaped my mind
Scientific genocide!

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
But when you are gone, we will still fly on
And on
And on
And on

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater

We didn’t buzz the tower
We were always flying since the sun’s been shining
We didn’t buzz the tower
We were on your radar, but we left a crater
(Fade out)

Whew! Quite an effort - good rhyming.

There's a list of epic songs on this site called "The Big Seven" which set a standard for being a song parody master -- songs like The Major General's Song; Wreck of the Edmund FitzGerald; American Pie .... Your song isn't on the Big Seven, but it should be. It's definitely more difficult than "Bohemian Rhapsody" ... So, to see a newbie start off with a good parody of "Fire" is amazing

I've done Bohemian Rhapsody five times. I made a start on "Fire" with a political parody called "We Didn't Heart The Liar" but I threw in the towel because it was too much work. So I know how difficult this OS (original song) is. You need to have one hell of a lot of info on any given subject to get this parody done ..... What are you, Dude -- Chief Engineer on the Kerbal project?
