Ship Titanic, The


Oh, they built the ship Titanic to sail the ocean blue
And they thought they had a ship that the water would never leak through
But the Lord's almighty hand knew that ship would never stand
It was sad when the great ship went down

Oh, it was sad, it was sad; it was sad, it was sad
It was sad when the great ship went down, to the bottom of the ..
Husbands and wives, little-bitty children lost their lives
It was sad when that great ship went down

Oh, they sailed away from England, and were almost to the shore
When the rich refused to associate with the poor
So they put them down below, where they were the first to go
It was sad when the great ship went down

The boat was full of din, and the sides about to burst
When the captain shouted "Women and children first!"
Then the captain tried to wire, but the wireless was on fire
It was sad when the great ship went down

So they swung the lifeboats out o're the deep and raging sea
The band struck up with 'Nearer My God to Thee'
Little children wept and cried, as the waves swept, o're the side
It was sad when the great ship went down

Oh the moral to be gained from this tale of woe and pain
Is that if you're rich you should not be so vain
For in the good Lord's eyes, you're the same as other guys
It was sad when the great ship went down

Oh they built another ship they called, "Titanic II."
They were sure this time that the water would never leak thorough
So they launched it with a cheer, and it sank right off the pier
It was sad when the great ship went down
