Lyrics: Henk Westbroek

Dutch English

You can drive a car full speed into the ocean
Only to find that car will sink while still in motion
That’s why someone sometime somewhere built a boat
Because a boat, you’ll notice, always stays afloat

Most people realise we can’t control the weather
And they accept they’ll never sprout a single feather
They simply put up an umbrella when it rains
And fly across the sky in aeroplanes

We’re sending spaceships on a journey to the moon
We’re turning night time into day when darkness lingers
Tulips for Christmas and a mistletoe for early June
We’ve turned the world into a hothouse
Now we’re bound to burn our fingers (Burn our fingers)

With a scientist, a mouse can try his games on
He will manipulate its genes until the brain’s gone
When the little mouse is twice its normal size
The scientist will go and win the Nobel prize

We’re sending spaceships on a journey to the moon
We’re turning night time into day when darkness lingers
Tulips for Christmas and a mistletoe for early June
We’ve turned the world into a hothouse
Now we’re bound to burn our fingers

If we keep on trying
We may well blow up the universe
If we keep on trying
We may end up like Einstein in reverse
Woah, oh…

We’re sending spaceships on a journey to the moon
We’re turning night time into day when darkness lingers
Tulips for Christmas and a mistletoe for early June
We’ve turned the world into a hothouse
Now we’re bound to burn our fingers
