The most inspirational scientist of the 20th Century gets the ballad treatment. Raise a glass to Carl Sagan! (Featuring Cal Frontier and the Tone-Deaf Caroleers.)

lyrics
The Ballad of Carl Sagan

He was born and raised in Brooklyn where he wondered ‘bout the stars
Insatiably curious about this universe of ours
Universe of ours, universe of ours
Everywhere he went he always tried to understand
The mysteries of the stars and the conundrum that is man
Conundrum that is man, conundrum that is man
Straight outta Brooklyn like a comet to the stars
Carl’s mind wandered from this pale blue dot of ours

He had ideas about the planets that tested quite well
Launched a bunch of missions when he worked with JPL
Worked with JPL, worked JPL
Mariner, Galileo, Viking, Voyager 1 and 2
He even lent a hand to the manned mission to the moon
Manned mission to the moon, manned mission to the moon
Straight outta Brooklyn like a comet to the stars
Carl’s mind wandered from this pale blue dot of ours

He went on TV and pointed to the sky
Said we’re probably not alone but need a skeptical eye
Need a skeptical eye, need a skeptical eye
He used Drake’s equation to calculate the chance
That somewhere there’s a planet with impressive intelligence
Impressive intelligence, impressive intelligence
Straight outta Brooklyn like a comet to the stars
Carl’s mind wandered from this pale blue dot of ours

For a man who spent such time with his eyes fixed above
He kept his two feet planted on the planet that he loved
Planet that he loved, planet that he loved
Carl surely proved that a skeptical mind
Could still be filled wonder and the mysteries of mankind
Mysteries of mankind, mysteries of mankind
Straight outta Brooklyn like a comet to the stars
Carl’s mind wandered from this pale blue dot of ours
(Tim P. Ryan)
