Spoken: That was a very stressful time out on the ocean when the Titanic struck the iceberg and went down. All those people had to drown. And main part 'at was so sorry the womens had to you know look at their mens go down on the ocean. And they put out the lifeboat just (ta try) an save the womens and let the men went down. So we're gonna play you The Titanic

On the fourteenth day of April year of nineteen twelve
When the Titanic struck the iceberg almost too sad to tell
God move
God move
God move
Oh the people had to run and pray

When the Titanic was sinking they put lifeboats all around
Says let's save the women and children even if the mens go down
God move
God move
God move
Whoa the people had to run and pray

When the lifeboat got to the landing women looked around
Say look out on that ocean look at our men go down
God move
God move
God move
Whoa the people had to run and pray

Captain he was laying down
Sleep 'cause he was tired
But he woke up in a great fright
'Cause the men had (gun shot him fired)
God move
God move
God move
Whoa the people had to run and pray

Jacob (P) Astor was a millionaire had plenty money to spare
But when the Titanic was sinking Lord he could not pay his fare
God move
God move
God move
Whoa the people had to run and pray
