Hymn/ Doing The Latest Rag PASSENGERS
God lift me up in mighty waters
Keep my eyes on things above
Rightteousness, divine atonement
Peace and everlasting love...

"Isn't this a lovely day?"(Yes!)

Watching all the ladies in Parisian fashions
On display

In rhythm that could never lag

To hear a band with a beat

So good to see you once more!
How long since we first met?
Has it been three days or four?
It seems like so much longer
Than a little weekend jag

On the ship, by ourselves
On this glorious afternoon
Doing the lastest rag!

Feel the rhythm of the song in your knees
Promenading along at your ease
Like a feather in the air

When you're dancing out of doors it's a thrill

Dancing as we cross the mighty ocean
Moing to then rythm of
The latest rag!
