I believe that 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 starts
Six
Five
Four
Three
Two
One
Zero
All engines thrust
Lift-off! We have a lift-off, 32 minutes past the hour
Three hundred and sixty-three feet of gleaming flight equipment
Being pushed up
Through the blue skies above
Hello, Neil and Buz
I copy 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, Buz Aldrin (sp?), Mike Collier (sp?)
Buz Aldrin, Neil Armstong, Mike Collier
Buz Aldrin, Mike Collier
This is Apollo control
Twenty-seven thousand feet per second
We confirm ignition, and the rest is 'go'
Everything is 'go'
This is Apollo control, at eleven hours, twenty-nine minutes
Apollo control, at twenty-two hours, forty-nine minutes
Eagle, you're looking great, altitude still looking very good
Altitude one-hundred thousand
Altitude forty thousand
Now thirty-three thousand five-hundred feet
Altitude now twenty-one thousand feet
Still looking very good
Altitude thirteen thousand feet
Still looking very good
Eagle, you're looking great
Fourteen-hundred feet
Altitude two-hundred feet
Eagle, you're looking great
The Eagle has landed!
It was beautiful from here
You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue
We're breathing again
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
Don't forget the depressurization
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind

One small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
We're reading you loud and clear
That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
This is the time of rejoicing
This is the time of rejoicing
In New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles
This is the time of rejoicing
Ticker-tape parades
This is the time of rejoicing
This is the time of rejoicing
This is Apollo control
This is Apollo control
This is Apollo control
One giant leap
For mankind
