The Titanic Song (For Kids)


Kids love the story of the Titanic. A big boat crashes into a giant piece of ice and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. It really is an incredible story.

My favourite piece of creative work done about the Titanic is an upbeat campfire song that sarcastically retells the tale. It is a interactive, toe-tapping tune that kids will quickly learn and sing-along too. It's also really easy to play on the guitar.

It is a perfect song for bathtime. Just grab a plastic boat and an ice cube and you're the parent of the year!

Below are the lyrics of the condensed version I sing with my family, with my revisions (in strikethrough) to make it more kid friendly. Here is the tune of the song for reference. Enjoy!

Said this ship will never land
It was sad when the great ship went down

Oh it was sad, so sad
Oh it was sad, so sad
It was sad when the great ship went down
To the bottom of the...

Husbands and wives Iceberg in site
Little children lost their lives Going to hit the starboard side

It was sad when the great ship went down

Verse 2:


Many years had passed
Since the last time it was seen
So explorers started looking
And they built a submarine

And they sent it down below
To the bottom ocean floor
They were glad when the great ship was found

Oh they were glad, so glad
Oh they were glad, so glad
They were glad when the great ship was found
At the bottom of the...

Books and movies
And a song by Miss Celine

They were glad when the great ship was found
