"Yuri" as written by Lennie Breslaw, Nik Ammar, Leo Bryant, Stephen Levi, Jonathan Walton and Sophie Solomon....
"This is Moscow speaking, all radio transmitters in the soviet union are broadcasting.
We have received news from the state news agency Tass about the world's first flight of man in space."

I am a rocket
The power of the system
It's bullet-proof technology
Oh we're going to a new world
Going to a better place

This is just the first step
And everyone will follow me
Hold me up as an example
There's no need to watch my back
'Cause my friends have got it for me

I'm gonna go down in history
As the man who made a difference
Call me egotistical
Well how dare you care you call me selfish
I'm doing this for mankind

'Cause I am a rocket
A child of the motherland
Pioneer for humanity,
I'm a wholesome superhero
For the worldwide society

We're heading out to outer space
We're going forth for the human race

'Cause I am a prodigy
A part of the master plan
A symbol of equality
Blasting out into the future
I'm a man defying gravity

They'll build me a monument
Name everything after me
Schools and hospitals
Armies of boys and girls
I'm gonna live forever
Immortality is mine!

We're heading out to outer space
We're going forth for the human race

We're heading out to outer space
We're going forth for the human race

"The cosmonaut pilot of the space ship Sputnik Vostok
is the citizen of the Soviet Union of Socialist Respublics,
pilot Major Yuri Alexeyevich Gagarin."
