From the album Antarctica
Chorus: He was a great man - Ernest Shackleton, going down to Antarctica.
He was a loyal friend - Ernest Shackleton, a leader, a leader of men.
1. His heart was set on finding the pole,
But his dreams would never come true.
He sent his men to Erebus-
The Magnetic Pole, and more!
2. His ship was crushed so he went in search
Of safety for all of his crew.
He sailed a life boat across the wild, southern seas
To save all his men- and they knew.
Because of the work that Shackleton did,
The journey to the pole became clear.
He discovered more than those who came before
And his legacy will endure!
