The Lyrics

My first dark parody... hope no one gets offended!!!
I don't need to heed the lifeboat call
Just 'cause we have a gash in the hull
And anyway, a life jacket doesn’t suit me
It’s just bloody too damn cold

I won't take the advice of my crew
I will keep the band playing
I'm still at the wheel
I'll pretend Titanic is not sinking
But I’ll report latitude and longitude
'Cause I can’t stop this ship from sinking
(Can‘t stop this ship from sinking)
No, I can’t stop this ship from sinking

I refuse to give into the news
That multiple decks are flooding
And I decry the icebergs in my sights
Even as the water’s rising

Now that an iceberg has ripped a gash in my hull
And now that several compartments are full
I'm still at the wheel
I'll pretend Titanic is not sinking
But I’ll report latitude and longitude
'Cause I can’t stop this ship from sinking

I'm still at the wheel
I'll pretend Titanic is not sinking, Oh God
Send out the S.O.S., keep the flares firing
'Cause I can’t stop this ship from sinking
(Can‘t stop this ship from sinking) oh no!

I can’t repair the gash in my hull
(Inferior rivets and brittle steel)

I won't take the advice of my crew
I will keep the band playing
I'm still at the wheel
I'll pretend Titanic is not sinking
But I’ll report latitude and longitude
'Cause I can’t stop this ship from sinking
(Can‘t stop this ship from sinking)
No, I can’t stop this ship from sinking

I'll command my crew, I know what to do
An iceberg ripped a gash in my hull
But I’ll try to save as many souls
I can’t stop this ship from sinking
I'm still at the wheel
‘Till my heart stops beating
I’ve got to keep the lifeboats lowering
I can’t stop this ship from sinking
I'll go down with my ship
An iceberg ripped a gash in my hull
We’ll never make the New York trip
'Cause I can’t stop this ship from sinking
