Titanic was a ship, she was on a maiden trip,
She sailed across the Atlantic ocean wide,
Must have been a pleasure trip, millionaires aboard the ship,
But some never lived to reach the other side.
Titanic, was her name, the Atlantic, was her fame,
She sank about five hundred miles from shore,
Sixteen hundred were unsaved, sink down in the angry waves,
Sink down beneath the angry waves to rise no more.
It must have been an awful scene, just like an awful dream,
To see so many perish beneath the waves,
Husbands, children, and their wives, were all pleading for their lives
But they all sink down beneath the angry waves.
Mr. and mistress used to stroll, the husband and the wife,
They were to each other, noble, brave, and true,
As they sang their evening hymn, she prepared to die with him,
And they both sink down beneath the angry waves.
It was a dark and startling night, there were not a gleam of light,
To light them through the darkness o'er the sea,
Must have been a solemn sound, just as the sun went down,
To have heard the band playing, "Nearer My God, To thee",
It was an eager, waiting crowd, that had gathered like a cloud,
To watch the ocean steamer as she came,
But the captain and the crew, sink down in the ocean blue,
And they never, never, heard them call their name.
