The Balloonman

Download Song

I am a balloonman as my father was before
I keep my eyes upon the horizon
And feet upon the wicker floor
In lean times and times of plenty
In peace times and times of war
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before

This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back
No train or schooner beats the ballooner
Who wants neither sea nor track
The payloads we bear through blue skies
Have borne us through skies of black
This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back
This nation was built upon the broad balloonman's back

I cannot guarantee to ship your cargo
To the destination you may have in mind
The wind decides your fate
When you're travelling by hot airs
But I can take your freight
Somewheres

I cannot guarantee to ship your cargo
To the destination you may have in mind
The wind decides your fate
When you're travelling by hot airs
But I can take your freight
Up to thirty pounds dry weight
Yes, I can take your freight
Somewheres

I am a balloonman as my father was before
I keep my eyes upon the horizon
And feet upon the wicker floor
In lean times and times of plenty
In peace times and times of war
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before
I am a balloonman as my father was before
