100 Years

Lyrics and Song Sample from HERE.

 the rich folks decided to take a trip on the finest ship that was ever built. the captain persuaded the people to think that the titanic too safe to sink


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 


the ship left the harbor at a rapid speed, carrying everything that people need. she sailed six-hundred miles away, met an iceberg in her way. 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 


 the ship left the harbor, was running fast. it was her first trip and her last. way out on that ocean wide an iceberg ripped her in the side. 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 


 up comes bill from the bottom floor said the water was running in the boiler door. go back bill, and shut your mouth, we got forty-eight pumps to keep the water out! 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 

 just about then the captain looked around, he saw the titanic was sinking down. he gave orders to the men around: "get your life-boats and let them down" 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 


 the men standing around like heroes brave, nothing but the women and the children to save; the women and the children are wiping their eyes, kissing their husbands and friends good-bye. 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down! 


 on the fifteenth day of may nineteen-twelve, the ship wrecked by an iceberg ocean dwell. the people were thinking of jesus of nazarene, while the band played "nearer my god to thee." 


 chorus: out on the o-o-o-ocean the great wide o-o-o-ocean the titanic, out on the ocean, sinking down!

I don't know that one! We had the other Titanic song as our camp song (and it sort of makes me squeamish today to think about the joy we had as campers singing that song -- about other people's death!). The one that goes, "it was sad, it was sad, it was sad when the great ship went down to the bottom of the... husbands and wife, itty-bitty children lost their lives, it was sad when that great ship went down."
