"India" as written by Richard/butler Butler and Roger Nicholas/kilburn Morris....
On!
Sailing on!
To our fate!
To India

Above the seas with the wind we are flying high
Our wings are sails and our trail means no second try
Golden and silver the future will be
When we're at the aim

Forward we sail into the unknown
We have no fear we're sacred
We're going to where no one has gone before
Keep on till we have reached the sunset
There will be no withdrawal
We're heading for the the treasures of India

Stars show the way through the night, we don't look behind
Water supplies getting low but we're strong in mind
Power and Glory will come to us all
When we're at the aim

Once there was a vision to find
A new land behind the horizon
When we chased the sun
A whole new world was born

My dearest wishes they will be fulfilled
When we have reached our destination

Forward we sail into the unknown
We have no fear we're sacred
We're going to where no one has gone before
Keep on till we have reached the sunset
There will be no withdrawal
We're heading for the the treasures of India

    General CommentActually it's about going to America!

    It describes colonists heading out to the "new world". Columbus thought he was heading to India when he sailed to the Americas.

    General CommentWHY no comments? This is a great song, especially for running...

    I suppose it's simply about going to India. The lyrics don't mean much to me, it is so catchy though. Really quite good.
