"What About Livingstone" lyrics

What About Livingstone

Went to buy me a paper
At the local news-stand
And then I heard them
Laugh and say
Look, they're gonna go flying
Way up to the moon now
Hey, what's it good for anyway
So I said
Fellas, like to ask you a thing if I may

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelling up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then
What about Livingstone

And all of those fellas
At the local news-stand
Didn't know what to answer
Or what to say
So I told them about him
That he was just like
One of those spacemen in his way
And if you laugh at them
Then there's only a thing I can say

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelling up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then

What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way
Tell me, wasn't it worth the while
Travelling up the Nile
Putting themselves on test
Didn't that help the rest
Wasn't it worth it then
What about Livingstone
What about all those men
Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way
