New World

Andy Lyle 1951 (Londonderry)



There was another planet out there
In a Galaxy far away
Where everything was dying
As its sun had gone astray

The Elder of the planet
Knew very well of their plight
That very soon no day would come
They would have only night

He picked the best out from his tribe
Placed them all in a craft
Shooting them off into Space
He hoped his race would last

And here is where it landed
All those light years ago
They formed the Human Race right here
On this planet Earth below

The Elders prayers were answered
Because Adam and Eve had found
A land that they could live on
With lots of food around

They prayed to their heavenly father
For having the insight
To send them from their planet
Where there was only night
