So as we fought the French the Indians joined in, All because of what land-stealing jerks we had been, Things were looking grim until ol' William Pitt, Said "War cost, forget it, England'll pay it!" At the Treaty of Paris, France said "Au revoir," To most of it land in North America, Colonists happy and they want to explore, The land they had won in the French and Indian War!

We had the technology, Others nations could only dream, Until 1949, the Ruskies go nuclear, '57, Dread on our face, They launch Sputnik into space, We are now in second place, Silver medals ain't enough for U.S. It ain't only about science, There's a problem this feat creates, Now the Russians could launch missiles, All the way into outer space, They could hit any target, in the United States, With Sputnik, this has started... the Cold War's Space Race Well we also got a rocket, called the Vanguard TV3, But when we tried to launch it, it blew up on live TV, It's time we founded NASA, in 1958, We're in Space Race, baby. Go USA! I'll say this for Germany, Their scientists really knew their thing, After Allied victory, A bunch were working for us but Also for the Russians and in 61', Yuri Gagarin, Became the world's first spaceman, (Oh no!) JFK knew catching up, To the Soviets wouldn't do, America had had enough, We needed to take the lead, So in an awesome speech he made, He pledged during that decade, America would take first place, We will land a man on the moon before you can! Now it's time to step our game, with Mercury and Gemini, $26 Billion later, it's July 1969, Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins, are strapped in to place, There goes Apollo 11, into outer space, Three days later Armstrong, took a small step for a man, But a giant leap for mankind, he was followed by Buzz Aldrin, Don't forget Michael Collins, who flew them to the moon, We're winning the Space Race, baby, 'Cause that's what we do. Twelve men have made it to the lunar surface, Only America has gone and done this, Conrad, Bean, Shepard, Mitchell, Cernan, and Schmitt, Irwin, Young, Scott and Duke, have also done it. The race could've went forever, but in 1975, The U.S. and Russia, had a much more friendly vibe, Apollo and Soyuz craft linked up in outer space, This signifies the end of the Cold War Space Race, You may ask was it worth but you can thank the Space Race for, Satellite navigation, and the joystick on your PS4, Thousands of daily products were made for outer space, So the winner was really the whole human race.
