It's okay, Joe
You'll get it right next time around
Don't let it bring you down
Don't let it bring you down

So you shot the rocketship a little left of Mars
Calculating inches to the nearest star

Don't forget the glory days
We beat the Russians to the moon
And not a second too soon
Not a second too soon

So we lost our crown to the information age
With all the glam and glitter left out of space

It's okay, Joe
It's okay, Joe
It's okay, Joe, what's a million trillion dollars for?

This one goes out to the Hubble Telescope
And all the Mars lunar lander probes
And all the grounded shuttle fleets beneath Cape Canaveral stars
Like all those laid off workers in the Detroit bars
With their GM cars

It's okay, Joe
It's okay, Joe
It's okay, Joe, what's a million trillion dollars for?
What's a million trillion dollars for?
What's a million trillion dollars for?
What's a million trillion dollars for?
What's a million trillion dollars for?
(This is ground control to Major Tom
Don't know exactly where you are
We're still working on it)
