Surprise! – Gunnar Madsen

Beep beep beep beep…Hello there!
Sputnik sails giggling through the skies,
Red flags, red faces, jump into the race
As the space age begins with a surprise!

“Surprise!” by Leslie Fish, a song commemorating the rather abrupt kickoff of the space race. This version is sung by Gunnar Madsen, with Mitchell Burnside Clapp providing the backing Russian.

Lyrics can be found in the To Touch the Stars CD booklet, available for free download on the Prometheus Music website.
