Parody Song Title:
"If Jimmy Webb Wrote "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald""
I was an engineer
For the White Star Line I did toil
Amidst the coal and steel and oil
Many a young maid on that maiden voyage went down
Many a gallant man gave up his place* and drowned
We struck an iceberg on that North Atlantic night
I made it out all right
I was a sailor
In a world embroiled in war
And I was signing on once more
The passengers were warned to take another ship*
For there were arms on board, someone had let that slip
A U-Boat tracked our course and closed in for the kill
But I am living still
I sailed on a freighter
Across the Great Lakes, deep and wide
Where steel mills need to be supplied
A bay called Whitefish was the safest place to go
The Fitz capsizing as the waves rushed in below
I was present when all the other crewmen drowned
Why am I still around?
I've always been around
And around, and around, and around, and around
I flew the Shuttle
On that cold January ride
The day the seven heroes died
My spirit lingered in that Y-shaped plume of smoke
Before the viewers of the TV news shows woke
The work of thousands wiped out in a single stroke
A bloody cosmic joke?
What next will I provoke, and provoke, and provoke...?
