S.O.S.

  • The band played and the cameras turned
    As the bottle smashed on her bow
    The flagship of the gilded age
    Moved slowly out to sea
    Never had such luxury
    Been seen afloat before
    They said she was unsinkable
    The fools were wrong once more

    S. - S.O.S.
    We're sinking fast
    You better get to the boats
    S. - S.O.S.
    The captain cried
    For God sakes save your souls

    Sailing on into the night
    Toward the northern star
    Laughter rang, people danced
    Under crystal chandeliers
    No one sensed the danger
    In the unforgiving sea
    Steaming into legend
    A voyage into history

    S. - S.O.S.
    We're sinking fast
    You better get to the boats
    S. - S.O.S.
    The captain cried
    For God sakes save your souls

    2000 tortured souls cry out
    Cry out from their sleep
    Damned to spend eternity
    Travelers of the deep

    S. - S.O.S.
    We're sinking fast
    You better get to the boats
    S. - S.O.S.
    The captain cried
    For God sakes save your souls [Repeat until end] Writer/s: GRAHAM OLIVER, PAUL QUINN, PETERY ROONEY BYFORD
