Remember Remember the 5th of November


Remember, remember the fifth of November 
Gunpowder, treason and plot 
I see 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 penny loaf to feed ol' Pope 
A farthing cheese to choke him 
A pint of beer to rinse 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. 
Hip hip hooray! 
hip hooray!
