Lady take a ride on a Zeke 64, Jerry wants to be a rockette
That's a popular misconception, says we haven't seen anything yet
Laying down the lifeless corpse of President 35
The lady crying by his side is the most beautiful woman alive

SATURN 5, YOU REALLY WERE THE GREATEST SIGHT
STRETCHING OUT ON A SUMMER'S DAY
HOUSTON, IT'S CALLING ME BACK TO HER

Lady take a ride on a Zeke 64, Jerry wants to be a rockette
That's a popular misconception, says we haven't seen anything yet
Laying down the lifeless corpse of President 35
The lady crying by his side is the most beautiful woman alive

SATURN 5, YOU REALLY WERE THE GREATEST SIGHT
STRETCHING OUT ON A SUMMER'S DAY
HOUSTON, IT'S CALLING ME BACK TO HER
AN EAGLE LANDS, AND A PLANET FULL OF PEOPLE RAISES it's HANDS
ALL HAIL THE MEN WHO WILL WALK UP IN HEAVEN TODAY

Monochrome TV, all the things you ever represented to me
Take me once more, take me to heaven again

SATURN 5, YOU REALLY WERE THE GREATEST SIGHT
STRETCHING OUT ON A SUMMER'S DAY
HOUSTON, IT'S CALLING ME BACK TO HER
SATURN 5, YOU REALLY WERE THE GREATEST SIGHT
STRETCHING OUT ON A SUMMER'S DAY
HOUSTON, IT'S CALLING ME BACK TO HER

    In my opinion it is about 60's american. Zeke 64, rockettes etc represent the time. As does the death of jfk (us 35th president) with jackie o as the most beautiful woman alive.

    Saturn 5 is a space shuttle launched a few times in the 60's where everyone watched from around there black & white (monochromatic) tv's.

    The rest is pretty much self explanitory.
