The song and accompanying video are the result of a collaboration between Allan Stewart and Scottish director Ryan Dewar, and have been shared widely on social media.
It was released as a tribute to inspiring captain Tom Moore, 99, who raised over £ 18million for the NHS by pledging to walk 100 laps around his Bedfordshire garden ahead of his 100th birthday.
He completed that challenge on Thursday, which prompted Prince William’s congratulations and a petition for the veteran to be knighted.
