Neil Armstrong song (to the tune of She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain

I wrote this song because I could not find a song about the great American, Neil Alden Armstrong that children could sing to help them remember facts about him. I have included the lyrics and have no problem with school or anyone in education using this for a performance or assembly. If you do use it please remember to ask permission from the parents if you film it and put it on social media. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
