Lyrics

Well, I dreamt I went away On a steam powered aereoplane I went and I stayed and I damm near didn't come back again And I didn't go very fast On a steam powered areoplane Oh, the wheel went around and up and down And inside and then back again Sittin' on a 747 just a watchin' them clouds roll by Can't tell if it's sunshine or if it's rain, rain, rain Rather be a sittin' in a deck chair high up over Kansas City On a genuine ol' fashioned authentic steam powered aereoplane Well I'd like ot be a pilot Of that steam powered aereoplane Well, I'd pull that pilot wheel around And then back again And I'd wear a blue hat, yeah That says 'steam powered aereoplane' In letters that go 'round the brim and then back again Sittin' on a 747 just a watchin' them clouds roll by Can't tell if it's sunshine or if it's rain, rain, rain Rather be a sittin' in a deck chair high up over Kansas City On a genuine ol' fashioned authentic steam powered aereoplane
