HORRIBLE HISTORIES


Pilgrim Rap Lyrics

We're the pilgrim fathers
you have heard rather
alot 'bout our notion
crossing the ocean
on the good ship Mayflower
but its true our journey
turned into quite a commotion

people report that we sported these hats
but that's not true I mean would you?
anyway the main thing to say
we began the U S A
with our little band of religion fans
from the east midlands

we all believed slowly
that England was becoming less holy
so set out for Holland
'cus there we had friends
but in the end it seemed the Netherlands
would never be the land, we planned

couldn't stand to remain on that terrain
so again we rearranged
to start a new nation with our congregation
a new and calmer life took a builder and farmer and his wife
and a cleric-a to find America

oh it's a new world
it wasn't new to the natives
still we thought we'd claim it
yeah, it's the new world

i still remember 9th of November
the year 1620 and we saw plenty of land
we thanked God when we found ground
i kept calm but it didn't go as planned

couldn't land on the sand
a month later though
we made it New Plymouth man
we claimed it the natives said not
but ran when we shot

moved there it proved yeah
that life would be tough
'cus we didn't have enough
of the right stuff
did you know had no seeds we could grow
though William Mullins had stacked
126 pairs of shoes in his pack
now that's wack

a fishing rod,a plough,
a pig, or a cow
would have been a much better idea
but now there's no food for us to eat
does this mean that with defeat!

no fun in the new world
i'm glad we've arrived here
but will we survive here
yeah, in the new world

people were staving
our numbers halving
and when the winter winds blew
even fewer liver through
it wasn't pretty in our new city
but the natives took pity even though
they didn't have to

man called Squanto
taught us how to grow maze
caught eel for our meal
build shelter in the bays
tribe gave us a feast
our starvation sieze
in 1621 what they had done
turned us back from the dead
to the living and to this day
thats why we have thanks-giving

in Massachusetts built a colony it's true
they say modern America was founded by our crew
it's a new world
but we can't call it england
lets call it new england
yeah, in the world

my home was in Plymouth
let's call it New Plymouth
I've got an idea lets call this New Hampshire
wait i'm from Newcastle
can we call it New Newcastle?
nah!
it's a new world
