"There She Is/Godspeed Titanic"   real audio     

Barrett, Bride & Fleet:
(looking at the ship, overwhelmed)
There she is...
Towering high...
Broad and grand...
Ship of dreams!

Sailing Day!
Morning Bright!
Take your flight!
Ship of dreams!...

She strains at her lines,
The smoke from her funnels trailing.
Her prow like a knife.,
She'll cut through the waves unfailing.

Soon to be
Size and speed unexplored..
And I'll be aboard
That ship of dreams!

Can't wait to board that ship today,

Be with her when she pulls away

And takes her maiden sail,

I must get on that ship!

The largest grandest on the earth

And I've reserved a birth
to be aboard, now point me toward
that ship!

For the maiden voyage!

For the maiden voyage!

Get us all aboard!

Last call for boarding!
This is the very last call for boarding!

Lift up the ramp

Let go the lines

Raise up her colours and design!
Prepare for the casting off

And through the port we'll slip
Each person standing at the rail,
Let one great thought prevail,

One single prayer...
God bless this noble ship!

All ashore who are going ashore!
All ashore who are going ashore!

Farewell, Farewell

Godspeed Titanic...

From your berth glide free!
As you plough the deep,

In your arms I'll keep.

Safely West

May you carry me.

Sail On, Sail On

Great Ship Titanic...

Cross the open sea
Pray the journey's sound

Til your port be found
Fortune's winds

Sing Godspeed to thee...

Fortune's winds

Sing Godspeed

To thee!
