Come Take A Trip On My Airship


"Come Take A Trip On My Airship" was published in 1903. Several years before man learned how to fly. The song expresses man's dream of flying and the romance associated with it. Before the days of real aviation, people dreamed of flying for the sheer joy of flying. They weren't trying to get from one destination to another. They just wanted to fly like the birds. The lyrics of this song invite a friend, lover perhaps, to come take a trip to the stars, to Jupiter and Mars.
This song has an enduring melody. In recent years it was used as the background music for a televison commercial produced by the GE Corporation.
