A ship set sail for America,
The enormous Titanic was she,
Passengers on board,waved and cheered,
As she sailed the Atlantic Sea,
Ploughing through icy waters,
Faster than any ship,
Husbands, Wives, Sons and Daughters,
Had long since waited for this trip,

As she left Southampton Dock,
Heading for New York City,
And racing against the clock,
Four days into crossing,
An iceberg struck her bow,
It was on the 14th of April,
And to this day,
They wonder why,
On the 15th day of April,
In the year of 1912,
1,517 passengers drowned,
A disaster that should not have happened,
And still the experts delve,
