The Ballad of Bill Arceneaux

With apologies to Paul Henning...

Come and listen to a story about a NASA engineer named Bill
A poor JSC guy, he tried to hold the line until,
One day he was tryin to make a real rocket success,
And up through the phone came a bubblin mess.

Emperor callin that is, fumin, DC style.

Well the first thing you know ol Bill's lost his chair,
Kinfolk said "Bill, move away from there"
Said "Testing is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to T&E.

Testin, that is. Rocket ships, space capsules.

Well now its time to say good bye to Bill and all his kin.
He's been told to pack his bags again.
Tried to hold the line on testin before PDR is reality,
Going to become the king of operability.

Doing nothing that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?.
