SPIRIT OF AMERICA

by

(Doo doo do duh) Spir-it of America,
(Ahh hah huuhhhh) Spir-it of America
(hah hunh huh hhu-unn-hnnn) Spir-it of America…

The Bonneville Salt Flat had seen some strange things
But the strangest thing yet was a jet without wings
Once there’s a jet it played in the stars
But now on the ground, is the king of all cars

(Ahh hah huuhhh) Spir-it of America, Spir-it of America
(ha hah huuhhhh) (Ahh hah huuhhhh) Spir-it of America,
(hah huh ha-ha-ha-unn-uhh) Spir-it of America

Half airplane, half auto, now famous worldwide
The ‘Spirit of America’ the name on the side
The man who would drive ‘er, Craig Breedlove by name
A daring young man played a dangerous game

(Ahh hah huuhhhh) Spir-it of America, Spir-it of America (hah hah hhuuhh) (Ahh hah huuhhhh) Spir-it of America,
(hah huh ha-ha-ha-unn-uhh) Spir-it of America

With a J47, a jet for his power
Craig Breedlove had averaged 407 per hour
For man and machine had given fair warn
They set a new record on that warm August morn

(Ahh hah huuhhhh) Spir-it of America,
(hah hah hhuuhhhh) Spir-it of America
(Ah hah huuh) Spir-it of America,
(ha hunh huh huh-unn-hnn) Spir-it of America

– The Beach Boys, 1963
