An Or, Orbit Bit

Chorus
   They say,
   What goes up,
   Must come down,
   But, what about things,
   That go round and roun'?

Yeah,
What about,
The "if's, but's, and or's?"
Yeah,
What about,
"... they come down,
Or, orbit a bit?"

Chorus

As an astronaut,
Alan B. Shepard Jr,
Wanted to know for sure,
Whether or not,
A golfball could be hit...
Into orbit,
And, though he couldn't quite get to,
V=((2*G*M)/R)(1/2), [escape velocity]
He did hit it a mile or two,
But, beware of your curiosity,
For if your swing has a follow-through,
You just might launch you, too.

Chorus

Yeah,
They say,
What goes up,
Must come down,
They say,
It's the only way,
Luckily, for me,
The Earth's still spinning around,
On it's axis... around and around,
And, about the sun... it turns around,
As the sun goes where it's bound,
Traversing the galaxy and universe,
What do you think is our course?
Do you think,
We're all falling down?
Do you think,
We're on the brink,
Of impact,
Are we getting ready to hit?
Or, do you think,
We'll orbit a bit?
