“Armstrong” released by Reg Lindsay

Black boy in Chicago

Playin’ in the street

Not enough to wear

Not near enough to eat

But don’t you know he saw it

On a July afternoon

Saw a man named Armstrong

Walk upon the moon

 

Young girl in Calcutta

Barely eight years old

Flys ’round the market place

See she don’t get old

don’t you know she heard it

On a July afternoon

Heard a man named Armstrong

Walk upon the moon

Heard a man named Armstrong

Walk upon the moon

 

Rivers gettin’ dirty

Wind is gettin’ bad

War and hate is killin’ us

The only earth we had

But the world all stopped to watch

On a July afternoon

Watched a man named Armstrong

Walk upon the moon

Watched a man named Armstrong

Walk upon the moon

 

And I wonder if a long time ago

Somewhere in the universe

They watched a man named Adam

Walk upon the earth

Ooh-ooh-ooh…
