it's the safest way
i promise you
it's the only way to fly
my daddy said as he pointed up
at the great grey thing
in the sky
the great grey thing
in the sky
pal he said
(he called me pal)
we'll ride in that big balloon
some day we'll fly to londontown
we'll soar like
the silv'ry moon
we'll go to spain
and portugal
we'll fly to paris france
didya' know that ship
has a ballroom hall
where it's big enough
to dine and dance
with colored lights
and saxophones
oh yes dad
tell me yesyesyes
and didya' know
every night for dinner pal
the people have to wear
full dress?

wah wah wah
wah wah wah
wah wah wah
wah wah

i loved to hear him
talking talking
the safest way to fly
my daddy promised
and i trusted him
despite his
terrible eye
despite his
terrible eye
for i had not yet
felt his wrath
when i gazed at the grey balloon
and i dreamed of
going off with him
by the light of
the silv'ry moon

we ran inside the house
to hear on the
big brown radio
the actual real live
landing broadcast
the big ship was coming in slow
ladies and gentlemen
here she comes
the announcer gaily exclaims
she's gliding in like
a great grey bird
oh god
it's burst into flames
my god
it's burst into flames....
