Lyrics

Elinor fly high above the clouds
No-one down below can reach you
Elinor Fly high and shine brightly
Blazing your way towards the stars

Following the leader's sky-trail
She thought you were the very best
Elinor Fly high and shine brightly
Blazing your way towards the stars

Your courage guided Bellanca
Survived a fall out of the sky
Elinor Fly high and shine brightly
Blazing your way towards the stars

First among equals
When no-one knew your face
You climbed longer, higher, faster
And kept on towards space

Elinor flew high and shone brightly
Blazing her way towards the stars

Elinor flew high above the clouds
No-one down below could reach her
Elinor flew high and shone brightly
Blazing her way towards the stars

Elinor Fly high and shine brightly
Blazing your way beyond the stars
