AGATHA GREEN
 
div
 
Agatha Green was about seventeen
And Agatha's craze was to fly
She shouted, 'Hooray' when her uncle one day
Said, 'Come for a cruise in the sky'
Now Agatha thought it was glorious sport
As they sped on their aerial ride
The monoplane flew like a bolt from the blue
And Agatha merrily cried

Refrain: 'Isn't it heavenly, Uncle, up in an aeroplane
The compasses show us that's Paris below us
We'll soon be in London again
Hip, hip, hip, let her rip, Uncle
We'll show them what we are worth
I feel so merry, oh, let's challenge Bleriot
When we get back to the earth.'


Agatha said, as she gazed overhead
'How ripping to visit the stars
We're up a good height, she's going all right
I'd love to see something of Mars'
So faster they went in a rapid ascent
And nearly got lost in a cloud
They hurried through space at a terrible pace
While Agatha shouted out loud.

Refrain: 'Isn't it heavenly, Uncle, up in an aeroplane
The speed is terrific, now that's the Pacific
And there in the distance is Spain
Hip, hip, hip, let her rip, Uncle
We'll show them what we are worth
You shall make merry, on whiskey and Perrier
When we get back to the earth.'


Naught has been seen of poor Agatha Green
Alas since she floated away
Her milliner's bill comes in constantly still
And there still is the draper to pay
Perchance all is well, and let's hope if they fell
They landed on something that's soft
But somehow I ween Miss Agatha Green
Is probably singing aloft

Refrain: 'Isn't it heavenly, Uncle, up in an aeroplane
It will be provoking if we get a soaking
I'm sure it's beginning to rain
Hip, hip, hip, let her rip, Uncle
We'll show them what we are worth
Britons shall brag o' the flying Agatha
When we get back to the earth.'
