Various Artists – Thunder Child lyrics

There were ships of shapes and sizes
Scattered out along the bay
And I thought I heard her calling
As the steamer pulled away

The invaders must have seen them
As across the coast they filed
Standin' firm between them
There lay Thunder Child

Moving swiftly through the waters
Cannons blazing as she came
Brought a mighty metal warlord
Crashing down in sheets of flame

Sensing victory was nearing
Thinkin' fortune must have smiled
People started cheering
"Come on Thunder Child
"Come on Thunder Child

Lashing ropes and smashing timbers
Flashing heat rays pierce the deck
Dashing hopes for our deliverance
As we watched the sinkin' wreck

With the smoke of battle clearing
As degrading waves defiled
Slowly disappearing
Farewell Thunder Child

Slowly disappearing
Farewell Thunder Child
Farewell Thunder Child
Farewell Thunder Child
