The Offensive Captain's Log

Come, my tan-faced children, follow well in order. Get your weapons ready. Have you your pistols? Have you your sharp-edged axes? For we cannot tarry here. We must march, my darlings. We must bear the brunt of danger. We, the youthful sinewy races—all the rest on us depend.

Er, I guess I’ll just stick to the script then—

Remember, remember

The fifth of November!

Gunpowder, treason and plot.

I know of no reason

Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.

 

Guy Fawkes,

Guy Fawkes,

'Twas his intent:

To blow up the King and the Parliament.

Three score barrels of powder below.

Poor old England to overthrow.

By God’s providence he was catched

With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys

God save the King!

Hip hip hooray!

Hip hip hooray!

 

A stick and a stake. 

For King James’s sake! 

If you won’t give me one 

Then I’ll take two.

The better for me 

And the worse for you. 

A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope, 

A penn’orth of cheese to choke him, 

A pint of beer to wash it down, 

And a jolly good fire to burn him. 

Holloa boys, holloa boys!

Make the bells ring! 

Holloa boys, holloa boys!

God save the King! 

Hip hip hooray! 

Hip hip hooray!
