Lyrics

I met an old old old old lady, a flying ace back in the day
Lived on the shore of Sydney harbour
With a view of the bridge she flew beneath
For a daring deed she could laugh about

I met an old old old old lady, I had no idea who she really was
I saw her white haired upright body
Her sharpened eyes, like a hawk she was
With a fierce mind and a will of iron

Oh lady you were challenged as you walked standing on two feet
Up there free as a bird, acrobatics were your thing
You dipped your wings and flew away

I met an old old old old lady, a flying ace back in the day
No women pilots on the front line
So she looped the loop, flew upside down,
wowed the home crowd, Australia’s clown

Oh lady you were challenged as you walked standing on two feet
Up there free as a bird, acrobatics were your thing
You dipped your wings and flew away
