Dance Band On The Titanic

Harry Chapin

Dance band on the titanic
Sing "nearer, my god, to thee"
The iceberg's on the starboard bow
Won't you dance with me

Mama stood cryin' at the dockside
Sayin' "please son, don't take this trip"
I said "mama, sweet mama, don't you worry none"
"even god couldn't sink this ship"

Well, the whistle blew and they turned the screws
It turned the water into foam
Destination sweet salvation
Goodbye home sweet home

I'm in the dance band on the titanic
Sing "nearer, my god, to thee"
The iceberg's on the starboard bow
Won't you dance with me

There was a trombone and a saxophone
The bass and drums were cookin' up the bandstand
And i was strummin' in the middle with this dude on the fiddle
And we were three days out from land

And now the foghorn's jammed and moanin'
Hear it groanin' through the misty night
I heard the lookout shout down "there's icebergs around"
"but still everything's all right"

Oh, the dance band on the titanic
Sing "nearer, my god, to thee"
The iceberg's on the starboard bow
Won't you dance with me

They were burnin' all the flares for candles
In the banquet they were throwin' in first class
And we were blowin' waltzes in the barroom
When the universe went crash!

"there's no way that this could happen"
I could hear the old captain curse
He ordered lifeboats away, that's when i heard the chaplain say
"women and children and chaplains first"

Well, they soon used up all of the lifeboats
But there were a lot of us left on board
I heard the drummer sayin' "boys, just keep playin'"
"now we're doin' this gig for the lord"
