Who is great among the great?
One who did not hesitate.
Who doth kings and rulers greet,
Casting honors at his feet?
To them with thy question go
For they seem to think they know
Our Lindy!

Who is great on earth, in sky,
When he does or does not fly?
Ask the folks both sides the sea,
All but one man will agree;
There is one who doth not know
And to him thou must not go—
Our Lindy!

Who doth kings and rulers greet?
Who doth nations seek to meet?
Conqueror of air and sky
Who across the sea did fly;
One there is among the great,
One who did not hesitate;
Conqueror of fog and sleet,
Hero now the world doth fête—
Our Lindy!
