Written for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing! Onward!!!

lyrics

July 16th, 1969
A Saturn V rocket took off for the skies
It orbited Earth, then left for the Moon
Armstrong, Aldrin, Collins too

Apollo 11 out to the moon!
They took Apollo 11 out to the moon!
They took Apollo 11 out to the moon!
They took Apollo 11 out to the moon!

20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind

Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!

In lunar orbit, Collins in control
The Columbia waited for the plan to unfold
Armstrong and Aldrin in the Eagle descended
Down to the surface as intended

The Eagle has landed, that's what I said!
I said the Eagle has landed, that's what I said!
I said the Eagle has landed, that's what I said!
I said the Eagle has landed, that's what I said!

20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind

Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!

(mission control dialogue)

20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
20 July 1969
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind

Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!
Whoo hoo!
