Trapped in the Icy South Pole

Inspired by the book Trapped by the Ice! by Michael McCurdy
Song by Sam Jones


This song is available on Sam Jones' Songs About Popular Children's Books, Vol 1.

Lyrics:

(to the tune of “Acres of Clams”)

A ship that was called the Endurance
Was trapped in the snow and the ice
That hulk of a ship was left by its men
Just lying upon its side
Oh, Just lying upon its side
The horizon was barren as it could be
As far as the eye could see
But harnessed like horses the men pulled boats
With supplies and some rations to eat
Oh, with supplies and some rations to eat

The men were sapped from hunger
At the edge of the polar sea
They launched the lifeboats
For the 800-mile long and grueling journey
Oh, what a long and grueling journey
And they slept on the icy terrain at night
They slept on the icy terrain
The men were sapped from hunger
At the edge of the polar sea
Oh at the edge of the polar sea

Throughout their whole perilous journey
Across the savage South Pole
They fought dehydration and wild animals
Still they had accomplished their goal
Yes, they accomplished their goal
They traveled across the whole South Pole
They traveled across the South Pole
By the time they arrived
They were all still alive
And finally they headed for home
Ernest Shackleton crossed the South Pole
Yeah he made it and so did his men
