Description

The Titanic
Oh they built the ship Titanic, and when they had it through,
They thought they had a ship that the water would not go through;
But the Lord’s almighty hand said that ship would never stand.
It was sad when that great ship went down.

Chorus:
Oh it was sad, it was sad, it was sad when that
great ship went down (hit the bottom, brother)
Husbands and wives, little children lost their lives;
it was sad when that great ship went down.

Oh they sailed from Enga-land, and they headed for the shore,
But the rich refused to associate with the poor.
So they sent them down below, where they were the first to go.
It was sad when that great ship went down.

[Chorus]

Oh it was an awful time for the people on the sea,
And the band struck up with “Nearer My God to Thee.”
The captain tried to wire, but the wire was on fire;
It was sad when that great ship went down.

[Chorus]

(The following verse was added after it was written for one of the first Seafarer talent shows.)

So the moral of this story, as you can plainly see,
Is to wear a life preserver when you go out to sea.
Little children lost their lives as the waves came o’er the sides
It was sad when that great ship went down.

[Chorus]
