I believe this nation
Should commit itself
To achieving the goal
Of landing a man on the moon
And returning him safely to the earth

Ten, nine, ignition sequence start
Six, five, four, three, two, one
Zero, all engines running
Lift off, we have lift off
Thirty five minutes past the hour

Three hundred and sixty five feet
Of gleaming white equipment
Being pushed up through
The blue skies of Florida

Hello Neil and Buzz
I'm talking to you by telephone
From the oval room of the White House
For every American
This has to be the proudest day of our lives

Neil Armstrong
Buzz Aldrin
Mike Collins

This is Apollo control

Twenty seven thousand feet
We confirm ignition
And the thrust is go
Everything is go

This is Apollo control
At eleven hours twenty nine minutes
Apollo control and twenty two hours
Forty nine minutes

Eagle you're looking great
Altitude still looking very good
Altitude three hundred thousand
Altitude forty thousand
Altitude now thirty three thousand five hundred feet
Altitude now twenty one thousand feet
Still looking very good
Altitude thirteen thousand five
Still looking very good
Eagle you're looking great
Fourteen hundred feet
Altitude three hundred feet
Eagle you're looking great

The Eagle has landed

It was beautiful from here
You've got a bunch of guys
About to turn blue
We're breathing again

It's one small step for man

One giant leap for mankind

This is the time of rejoicing
In New York, Chicago, Los Angeles
This is the time of rejoicing
Ticker tape parades

This is Apollo control
This is Apollo control
This is Apollo control

One giant leap for mankind
