Touchin' Down in Old Maui

To: "Rolling Down to Old Maui" - traditional.

It's rough tough life of toil and strife
We spacemen undergo
And we don't give a damn when the work is done
How far the earth below
For we're surface bound from the higher ground
For a good weeks leave or three
And we'll give a damn if there is no rum
When we touch down in old Maui

Touchin' down in old Maui, me boys
Touchin' down in old Maui
We're surface bound from the higher ground
Touchin' down in old Maui

Once more we blast to orbits past
The rocks and space debris
The moonlit bays, them tropic days
We soon will feel again
Countless time has passed fast away
In the cold and sunless sea
Falling down past the speed of sound
We're touchin' down in old Maui

Touchin' down in old Maui, me boys
Touchin' down in old Maui
We're surface bound from the higher ground
Touchin' down in old Maui

Once more we blast our engine's last
Our falling now to slow
Our fuel is gone, our trip is done
Once more the ground to know
Our heat shield is burnt away
We pay it no more heed
The wind is roaring in our ears
The sound is all we heed

Touchin' down in old Maui, me boys
Touchin' down in old Maui
We're surface bound from the higher ground
Touchin' down in old Maui

Now we bob on waves of warmth and light
Now the blackness all has gone
The retrieval crews have done their job
We're almost on firm ground
Watching now we can see our girls
Waiting for us at the dock
Waiting eager for our pending berth
Gazes fixed and bright eyes locked

Touchin' down in old Maui, me boys
Touchin' down in old Maui
We're surface bound from the higher ground
Touchin' down in old Maui

Now we're finally docked and on on the beach
Margaritas in our hands
Soft relief within our arms
Few men can understand
The days we spend lying in their beds
We wish would never end
But there's only a brief respite
Till we ship back out again

Touchin' down in old Maui, me boys
Touchin' down in old Maui
We're surface bound from the higher ground
Touchin' down in old Maui
