about

A nice little song about a girl named Josephine, and the trip she takes into the sky with a mysterious benefactor and their flying machine.

lyrics

Come Josephine in my flying machine
and it's up she goes, up she goes
Higher than high we'll fly right in the sky
'cause it's up she goes, up she goes

Josie my dear I know you want to see
exactly how brave of a girl you can be
But Josie my love do you really believe
that you could ever leave?

Come Josephine in my flying machine
and it's up she goes, up she goes
Clouds all around, we can't see to the ground
and it's up she goes, up she goes

Josie my sweet you must pay for this ride
And there is nowhere on this earth you can hide
Josie my pet now you must pay the toll
of your immortal soul

Come Josephine in my flying machine
and it's up she goes, up she goes
Whatever you say there's the devil to pay
and it's up she goes, up she goes

Josie you truly should ask for the cost
The moment you joined me you'd already lost
Josie my star join in my serenade
Your deal's already made

Come Josephine in my dying machine
and it's up she goes, up she goes
right 'til we fell to the fires of hell
it was up she goes, up she goes

Come Josephine in my flying machine
and it's up she goes, up she goes
high in the sky we will fly 'til we die
and it's up she goes, up she goes.
