It is a children's song. Here, from memory, is the Irish Rovers' version, as best as I can recall.

Others may correct me or fill in the blanks, as it has been a while. The song definitely says London Airport; there is one in London Ontario but I assume they mean London, UK, where I know of no such airport.

THE BIPLANE 'EVERMORE'

Way out in London Airport, in hangar number four,
A lonely little biplane sat whose name was Evermore.
His working days were over, and no more would he sail
On his wings, above the clouds, flying the Royal Mail.

CHORUS: Bye, bye, biplane, once upon a sky plane.
Bye, bye, hush a bye, lullaby ----------------.

All the mighty jet planes would look down their nose.
They'd laugh and say, "Oh, I'm so glad that I'm not one of those."
And Evermore would shake away a teardrop from his wing
And dream of days when he again could do heroic things.

(Chorus)

Then one day the fog and rain had closed the airport down,
And all the mighty jet planes stood helpless on the ground.
A call came to the airport, to fly a mercy flight.
It could not wait. It would be too late. Someone must fly tonight.

So they rolled the little biplane onto runaway number five,
And though he looked so small and weak he knew he would survive;
And as he rose into the fog the big jets --------
As the lonely little biplane once more did mighty deeds.

And so, me biddy bundle, I have spun a tale for you.
You must learn there's nothing in this world you cannot do
------------------------------------------------------------------
Remember Evermore, and set ---------------------------------------

(Chorus)

Pretty impressive, Tim Jaques tjaques@netcom.ca, I cheated and pulled out the Rovers Best of CD. It's substantially the same as your post.

THE BIPLANE 'EVER MORE'
(Martin Cooper)

Way out in London Airport, in hangar number four,
A lonely little biplane sat whose name was Evermore.
His working days were over, and no more would he sail
Upon his wings, above the clouds, flying the Royal Mail.

CHORUS:
Bye, bye, biplane, once upon a sky plane,
Bye, bye, hush a bye, lullaby plane.

All the mighty jet planes would look down their nose.
They'd laugh and say, "Oh, I'm so glad that I'm not one of those."
And Evermore would shake away a teardrop from his wings
And dream of days when he again could do heroic things. CHORUS

Then one day the fog and rain had closed the airport down,
And all the mighty jet planes were helpless on the ground.
When a call came to the airport for a mercy flight.
It would be too late. They could not wait. Someone must fly tonight.

So they rolled the little biplane onto runaway number five,
And though he looked so small and weak, he knew he could survive;
And as he rose into the fog, the big jets hung their wings
And they hoped one day like Evermore to do heroic things. CHORUS

And so, me biddy bundle, I have spun a tale for you.
You must learn there's nothing in this world you can't do.
Do not be discouraged by circumstance or size.
Remember Evermore, and set your sights up in the skies. CHORUS

Heard this from the Irish Rovers and absolutely loved it. It is the most requested lullaby from my kid brother. I think it would make a great children's book and have been drawing up my own versions for fun, but I can't find the author. Does anyone know who wrote this song?

Hi Jennifer!

I got out my copy of the Irish Rovers album, All Hung Up and the name under "The Biplane, Evermore" is Martin Cooper. It does not say if he wrote it or is singing it. I Looked all over the album and record and it does NOT say "written by" anywhere> I can only surmise he is the composer as the other songs say "Featuring" or "Arranged by" before any other names. Also, it is the only time Martin Cooper's name appears on the album or jacket.

I hope this will help. I have no idea what the names of the Rovers were so I can't go by that. Sorry

Blessings, Reta

If you can think of anything else I can check on it just ask.

Here you go. Picked this out of a thread from a while back.

Way out in London airport, in hangar number four
A lonely little biplane sat whose name was Evermore
His working days were over, and no more would he sail
Upon his wings, above the clouds, flying the Royal Mail.

Chorus: Bye, bye, bi-plane, once upon a sky plane Bye, bye, hush a bye, lullaby plane.

All the mighty jet planes would look down their nose
They'd laugh and say "Oh I'm so glad that I'm not one of those"
And Evermore would shake away a tear-drop from his wing
And dream of days when he again could do heroic things

(Chorus)

Then one day the fog and rain had closed the airport down,
And all the mighty jet planes were helpless on the ground
A call came to the airport, for a mercy flight
It would be too late they could not wait, someone must fly tonight.

So they rolled the little bi-plane onto runaway number 5
And though he looked so small and weak he knew he would survive
And as he rose into the fog the big jets hung their wings
And they hoped one day like Evermore to do heroic things

And so me biddy bundle, I have spun a tail for you
You must learn there's nothing in this world you cant do
Do not be discouraged by circumstance and size
Remember Evermore, and set and set your sites up in the skies.

Martin Cooper was indeed the composer.

allmusic says THE BIPLANE 'EVERMORE' was written by Martin Cooper.

It has been recorded by The Irish Rovers, Will Millar (a member of the Irish Rovers, who also records separately), and The Royal Guardsmen (whose big hit in 1966 was SNOOPY VS. THE RED BARON).

When I was little I had a record that belonged to my mom, which had animated drawings of the Evermore story. I have searched and searched for it online, but can't find it. It was definitely from the 70's or earlier.

Hi Emilie,

I suggest doing an image search on Google for the biplane evermore illustrations

The Irish Rovers released an EP called The Biplane Evermore with that illustration on the cover. Could that be the record you are asking about?


The Biplane Evermore 1968 - Festival DX-11 533 EP — Australia

Or, The Royal Guardsmen released a record called The Best of The Royal Guardsmen It may have had illustrations for The Biplane Evermore.

I forgot to say that I love biplanes. I don't know why. There are two airfields about 20 miles from where I live which are dedicated to old aircraft, including biplanes. I always recognise the sound of a biplane as it flies overhead and rush outside to catch a glimpse.

A few years ago, for my 57th birthday my hubby organised a joy flight in a biplane. "Joy flight" is the correct name for it, believe me! It gives me a sense of joy every time I think about flying in the biplane at sunrise over the green hills of our local valley.

Got to fly an old PT-17 about eight years ago. The instructor does the take off then gives you the controls with " keep it at 80 knots and level off at 2000 feet". Did lazy eights and stalls, then just flew around a bit with a warning to stay out of the clouds. I would like to do that again.

Jennifer,
I don't have an answer to your question but my son would love to see your illustrations. He loves the song and I know he would read a book version over and over again.

George Millar performed Biplane Evermore on the Irish Rovers "All Hung Up" album. Compare his voice to other songs he performed and he becomes instantly recognizable.
