Apollo

from the album

Well in nineteen-sixty-nine
A giant leap for mankind
Was a small step for a man you all should know
Neil Armstrong was his name
And the world's not been the same
Since he went to the moon in a ship called Apollo

Apollo flew from Earth to the great big moon
The spacecraft landed safe on a lunar dune
For a long time we had wondered
About this orb that we live under
So we built a ship and trained an able crew
Apollo flew from Earth to the great big moon

Well Neil brought his friend Buzz
To the moon with him because
A trip to the moon can not be done alone
Michael Collins waited high
Up in the lunar sky
And watched Neil and Buzz explore the great unknown

Apollo's crew
Was a select few
Who traveled from the earth to the great big moon

When the Eagle landed
The men would not be stranded
Ground control would help them get back home
And all the folks at NASA
Helped Apollo past the
Stratosphere to land safely in sea foam
Apollo led the world to the great unknown

Apollo flew from Earth to the great big moon
The spacecraft landed safe on a lunar dune
For a long time we had wondered
About this orb that we live under
So Michael, Buzz, and Neil got a closer view
Apollo flew from Earth to the great big moon
Apollo flew from Earth to the great big moon
Apollo flew from Earth...
