Amelia Earhart

print

Oh a ship out on the ocean just a speck against the sky
Amelia Earhart’s flight was set that day
With her partner Captain Noonan on the second of July
Her plane fell in the ocean far away

   There’s a beautiful beautiful field
   Far away in a land that is fair
   Happy landings to you Amelia Earhart
   Farewell first lady of the air

A half an hour later an s.o.s. was heard
The signal weak but still her voice was brave
In shark-infested waters her plane went down that night
In the blue Pacific to a watery grave.

Now you have heard my story of that awful tragedy
And prayed that she might fly on safe again
In years to come when others blaze a trail across the sky
We’ll never forget Amelia and her plane.
