Hearts will glow, with admiration,

When our new liner leaves the quay.

And the name, loved by the nation,

Will give her charm and dignity.

British labour gave its skill .....

and it's giving me a thrill .... cause

I've booked my trip for the USA

So when I go over the sea

The Queen Mary takes me.


(Chorus)


I'm happy and gay,

cause I'm sailing away

I've booked my trip for the USA

On the finest ship in the world

The Queen Mary ...... how'd you like to come with me?

The ship is all British, it's wonderful too,

The ship is manned by a British crew,

So when I go over the sea,

The Queen Mary takes me.



There'll be fun galore

and people I adore

That's why I'm happy and gay,

cause I'm sailing away

On the finest ship in the world

The Queen Mary ...... Queen of the Sea
