Guy Fawkes

Remember, remember!

The fifth of November,

The 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.

Twelve score barrels of powder below;

Poor old England to overthrow.

By God’s providence he was catched,

With dark lantern and burning match.


Hoorah, boys, hoorah, boys, let the bells ring!

Hoorah, boys, hoorah, boys, God save the King!


A penny loaf to feed ol’ Pope,

A farthing cheese to choke him.

A pint of beer to wash it down,

A faggot of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar

Burn him like a blazing star.

Burn his body from his head

Then we’ll say ol’ Pope is dead.
