about

"Poyekhali!" (Let's go!)
- Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space, upon the launch of Vostok 1, April 12th, 1961

lyrics

A man sits atop a rocket
In a land devastated by war
In a hand-painted, still-wet helmet
They seal the capsule door

A classified, unannounced launch
Of a secret single-orbit flight
Only two of seven previous
unmanned capsules survived

At launch he yelled "Let's Go!"
It became became a rallying cry
108 minutes of history
Where science and dreams unite

Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
It isn't anything that you can't handle
So fix your problems and light this candle
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Climb aboard and get on with the show
Let's go!

Kindle your imagination
Until your dreams ignite
Unrelenting persistence
Is your price for paradise

Your countdown has begun
Your effort is inertial
It's T minus a lifetime
and guidance is internal

One small step or a giant leap
For yourself or for all mankind
You just have to find the place
Where effort and dreams unite

Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
It isn't anything that you can't handle
So fix your problems and light this candle
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Poyekhali!
Let's go!
Climb aboard and get on with the show
Let's go!
