Lyrics:

They call us that good old capsule crew
And men of our courage are few
We live like a mole way down in that hole
That good old capsule crew!

Well, at Hotel Flight, way out in the sticks
Lived a crew commander named Mean Gene Hicks
He'd watch his missiles 'til the sun went down
And he'd sing right out with a joyful sound:
"Oh, missile duty's pleasing, I never will be leaving
Ooh, ooh, ooh... I love it!"

Was the third of June, that fateful day
Gene went on alert so far away
Then the fuel shortage hit, it still hasn't passed
Now you'll never be relieved, 'cause there isn't any gas!
"Yeah, missile duty's pleasing, but I NEVER will be leaving!
Ooh, ooh, ooh... I love it!"

Well, I asked Mean Gene why he called his crew
The "Titan Twos" instead of 102
When he kissed his deputy, it all came clear:
Missile duty made Mean Gene queer!
"Listen, missile duty's pleasing and I never will be leaving...
Oooh! OOH! AH! I love it."

Sky-cops, OSI, CIA
They're all chasing Mean Gene
Trying to put him away
They're looking, trying to book him
But Mean Gene kept on trucking!

They call us that good old capsule crew
And men of our courage are few
We live like a mole way down in that hole
That good old capsule crew!
Oh yes, we live like a mole way down in that hole
That good old capsule crew!
