And she spread her wings and she flew
Yep the nation was flying now taking to the air
In a few hours time you could fly over all those trails blazed by the pioneers
Phonographs were playing the hit songs of the day
Alexander's Ragtime Band and My Mother Was A Lady
And here's a song my mama sang back about 1910 or 1950

Come take a Trip in my Airship,
come take a trip around the stars!

Come take a sail around Venus,
Come take a sail around Mars!
No one to watch while we're kissing
No one to see while we spoon.
Come take a Trip in my Airship,
We'll visit the Man in the Moon!
