Ode to “Titanic”

Ode to “Titanic” (to the tune of the “Gilligan’s Island” theme)
Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful flick.
That started from this Hampton port
Aboard the Titanic.

My mate promised lots of sailing lore,
But Cupid shot his bow.
Her heart set sail with Jack that day
For a three hour show, a three hour show.

The hero started petting Rose.
They kissed, their hair was tossed.
If not for the timing of an iceberg crash,
My dinner would be lost, my dinner would be lost.

The ship struck ground on the floor of this
Uncharted northern sea,
With Guggenheim,
The skipper, too,
A millionaire,
Straus’s wife.
Beneath the stars,
Looking for a place on the grand staircase,
Where they will again smile!
