[i]Old Moc the Mechanic, I remember him well
He once built a rocket, or so they will tell...
From an old winding engine he found on the dole
It was built in the Rhondda and powered by coal.
And when it was finished, he painted it red,
and he called it Bethania... or so it is said.
And they took it up a mountain on a night late in June
To get that bit closer, said Morgan the Moon.
Sleepy Treorchy was bathed in white light
when the shuddering hulk, took off in the night.
A deafening scream and then a great roar as up passed the houses old Morgan did go!
His heatshield was glowing... like anthracite coal!
And we prayed down in Cardiff, in mission control.
And the barrow wheels dropped
As was previously planned and old Morgan prepared for Bethania to land.
He landed like linen in a crusty old crater,
Dai said he'd get there lunar or later!
So off Morgan went in the moon's swirling dust
To collect some rock samples from the crater's hard crust.
A strange piece of rock soon old Morgan found,
It was lying there shining on the dust covered ground
He picked it up closely and he let out a call...
'Cause written right through it in Welsh was Porthcawl![/i]
