Come Take A Trip In My Airship Lyrics - Natalie Merchant

Review The Song (4)



COME TAKE A TRIP (In My Airship)

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 wind
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.
Noone will see while we’re kissing, noone will know as we swoon.
So come take a trip in my airship, and we’ll visit the man in the moon.

One night sailing a-way from the clouds
We passed through the milky white way.
While idly drifting and watching the crowds
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
sponsored links
And we’d teach all the babies this tune:

Come take a trip in my airship, come sail away to the stars.
We'll travel to Venus, we'll sail away to Mars.
Noone will see while we’re kissing, noone will know as we swoon.
So come take a trip in my airship, and we’ll visit the man in the moon.

(Repeat Chorus)

Life saver | Reviewer: Mario | 7/13/14

this song was a bedtime song for me when i was a baby. so naturally i knew the song by the tune and looked up some of the verses. i started singing this to my girlfriend when she was going through panic attacks ( she has severe depression and anxiety), and it helped her fall asleep. some days are worse than others and though she is getting help, on days like today where i have to sing her asleep due to the fact that she is also suicidal just makes me thankful that i was blessed to know and sing this song.

memories | Reviewer: samantha | 1/30/10

my mom used to sing this song to my sister and i when we were little. i hadn't thought about it in a long time until last night when my mom was laying in bed with me, playing with my hair while i was sick. i started singing it and she joined me. even though i'm 17, i still love sometimes looking and once again enjoying the memories from my childhood.

My babies' favorite | Reviewer: Steph | 4/20/07

It was funny to see a review that I might have written myself !

I first heard this song when I worked at The Crayols Factory, and we had it playing in one of the exhibits. I added it to the bedtime routine "repetiore" after that, and it soon bacame "most requested"

They are now 14, 12, 11, and 10 --and I just looked up these lyrics because they asked me to sing it again and I had forgotten 2 or 3 of the lines !

Our family love song | Reviewer: Lorraine Partosa | 3/8/06

I've been singing this song to my kids since they were babies. They are now 5,7 and 12--and it still calms them and comforts them--as it does me. They think this is the love story of their mom and dad--with them mixed in too. And of course, they are right about this magical, whimsical tune.
