O’er the clouds our aeroplane is winging,
We are flying, we are flying;
Far to earth our happy shouts are ringing,
We are soaring high.

On, ever onward, still our course we steer;
On, ever onward, hearts can know no fear;
Sail, sail with gladness, ’neath a cloudless sky
With ship of air
The heights we’ll dare,
We soar on high!

Swift we sweep o’er mountain and o’er meadow,
We are flying, we are flying;
Sail we on in sunlight or in shadows,
We are soaring high.

Outstretched planes as pinions now are bending,
We are flying, we are flying;
Lofty heights we’re fearlessly ascending.
We are soaring high.
