Farewell to Concrode - lyrics

Cleveland Brown

I always wanted to go flying on Concorde
But it’s something I can no longer do
Because now every Concorde that once flew
has been grounded
And now within these hangar walls
they are confounded
Never to fly again
Never to fly again
Never to fly, never to fly again
So bye-bye
Farewell to Concorde

I always wanted to go flying on Concorde
Because it seemed like just the thing to do
Riding on a Supersonic Transport in the sky
Sipping on champagne and sitting next to you, my baby

Me at Smithsonian

MLB at the Dulles Airport Smithsonian

(chorus)
I used to stop and stare with envy in my eyes
Such a beautiful bird, just to watch it fly
Once this great machine was the envy of the skies
Now I’ll never get to ride it before I die

I always wondered what it felt like
To fly faster than mach two point zero four
Sitting on the edge of space
ten miles up in the sky
Looking down at the world
while riding next to you, my baby

(chorus)
I used to stop and stare with envy in my eyes
Such a beautiful bird, just to watch it fly
Once this great machine was the envy of the skies
Now I’ll never get to ride it before I die

Concorde at Smithsonian

Air France Concorde

Well it’s famous pointy nose
Now it strikes a permanent pose
In the Smithsonian
Air and Space Museum
Where you can see em
On the hangar floor
Never to fly no more
Never to fly again
Never to fly again
Never to fly, Never to fly again
So bye-bye
Farewell to Concorde
