Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Engineer's version of 'Titanic'
Subject: Engineer's version of 'Titanic'
Hi, I'm looking for a source on a song that is a technical description of the sinking of the Titanic. It was written in a quietly hilarious way, and as I recall used terms like axis of rotation, moment of bouyancy, etc. It basically was a parody of the well-known "It was sad, it was sad..." version of the song, but instead of being all sentimental, it was sort of a naval architect's description of the tragedy. I would really like to find a recorded source for this, and play it on my radio program*.

All pointers appreciated.
