Natalie Merchant – Come Take A Trip In My Airship lyrics

I once loved a sailor.
Once, a sailor loved me.
But he was not a sailor,
Who sailed on the wide blue sea.
He sailed in an airship;
Sailed like a bird on the wing;
And every evening at midnight,
He would come to my window and sing:

Come take a Trip in my Airship,
Come sail away to the stars!
We'll travel to Venus,
We'll sail away to Mars!
No one will see while we're kissing
No one will know as we swoon.
So come take a Trip in my Airship,
And we'll visit the Man in the Moon!

One night while sailing away from the crowds,
We passed through the Milky White Way.
While idly drifting and watching the clouds,
He asked if I'd name the day!
Just by the Dipper, I gave him my heart,
The sun shone on our honeymoon.
We swore to each other, we never would part,
And we'd teach all the babies this tune.
