Come Take a Trip In My Airship

I once loved a sailor / Once a sailor loved me
But he was not a sailor / Who sailed on the wide rolling sea
He sailed in an airship / Free as a bird on the wing
And every Sunday evening / He'd fly past my window and sing

Come take a trip in my airship / Come let us sail to the stars
Come let us fly of to Venus / Come take a trip around Mars
No one will see when we're kissing
No one will know when we spoon
Come take a trip in my airship / And we'll visit the man in the moon

One night while sailing away from the crowds
We passed through the milky white way
While idly drifting and watching the clouds
He asked if I'd name the day
Just by the dipper I gave him my heart
The sun shines on our honeymoon
We swore to each other we never would part
And we'd teach all our babies this tune....
