lyrics

I built an atom bomb
I shot it into space
Forgot one minor flaw:
The laws of physics dictate what goes up must soon come down

It hit the planet Mars
It did not detonate
It then bounced off Jupiter
And back to Earth it ricocheted

Please tell me it's okay
I swear I'm sorry and it won't happen again
One bad idea shouldn't haunt me 'til the end
Which, by the way, according to my math is not far off

Please tell me it's okay
I swear I'm sorry and it won't happen again
One bad idea shouldn't haunt me 'til the end
Which, by the way, is in, like, twenty minutes
