LYRICS:

on April the tenth, Nineteen Twelve

a story began for which we must delve

out of the port of Southhampton the liner did leave

on a cruise to manhattan or so they believed

it was the largest boat man ever built

born from men who had breathed in the dust and the silt

the boat they had told us could never be sunk

whoever promised that had musta been trunk

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

Edward John Smith was the man in command

it was his vessell when it wasn’t on land

Murdoch at his side his crew was the best

hand picked for the cruise above all the rest.

Harland and Wolf had build the ship strong

to sail for many years and last very long

But when it came to lifeboats they could have used more

They just couldn’t imagine what they be needed for

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

The ship It was cruising straight to New York

While the millionaires ate caviar from the tip of a fork

And the immigrants huddled down in the hull

that big old boat was certainly full

Yes, the white star line was known for it’s greed

never tolerated stoways or people in need

the dining rooms decked out in silver and gold

while the tramps in steerage shivering and cold

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

Up in the crows nest – Fleet was perched

His duty was clear he just had to search

for an iceberg or anything that was clear

they only trouble was it was already too near

The berg tore into the side and caused a gash

while the people on deck were having a bash

The bow listed back and the people screamed

the impossible had happened or so it had seemed.

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

So many people plunged into the waters

many husbands and wives and sons and daughters

there were lifeboats for some who were lucky or greedy

to die cold and alone was the fate for the needy

The mast rose high and then sunk down

just to dissapear without a sound.

the Carpatia she eventually arrived

but it was much too late so many had died

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

[HARMONICA SOLO]

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

The director Cameron on the set of true lies

As the scene played out out he closed his eyes

a vision of his next film was becoming clear

the story of the shipwreck for all to hear.

DeCaprio was cast and Winslet as Well

LIttle did they know the shoot would be hell

Cameron pushed the limits of CGI

all the special effects really defied the eye

oh titanic – how could you let us down

oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

When the film premiered it blew the roof off the place

all the executives of smiles on the face

it went on to gross more than a movie ever had

for a flick about a shipwreck – that ain’t bad

it was a lock for the oscar it just couldnt lose

the academy never even had to chose

when cameron took the prize his head must have swirled

at the podium he said i’m the king of the world.

Then some years later when the timing was right

cameron dusted off his treasure like we thought he might

the story hasn’t changed nor either the cast

but options for cameron still were vast

see the original had always seemed kind of flat to me

so the master upgraded it to be seen in 3D
