Spitfire Lyrics


Old man sunshine listen you
Never tell me dreams come true
Just try it and I'll start a riot
Beatrice Fairfax don't you dare
Ever tell me he will care
I'm certain it's the final curtain
I never want to hear from any cheerful Pollyannas
Who tell you fate supplies a mate
It's all bananas
They're writing songs of love but not for me
A lucky star's above but not for me
With love to lead the way I've found more clouds of gray
Than any Russian play could guarantee

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi-ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can't dismiss the memory of his kiss
I guess he's not for me

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi-ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can't dismiss the memory of his kiss

How can something that is 70 years old still evoke such emotion and pride. This music does the plane proud.

Rather like Hedi Lamarr, it has beauty that transcends time, that's why...

My Dad flew Spits in WW2. Don't know what he'd have made of this but I love it!

@Duncan Hewitt most poor were on boats to their deaths.

@darkdante23 Didn't have to be posh to fly in the RAF in WW2. My second cousin flew and he was a back street Brummie. If you were young, had the cojones, and were good at your job, you were in.

"can't see a Spit in the air without getting a kick out of it"
Words as true today as when they were written.

I live near Biggin hill so I am lucky enough to see spits quite a lot, but it's still completely amazing every time.

We had a Spitfire on a static display podium at the entrance of our Base. We would salute it upon entering, ignoring Officers - we had our priorities organised.
