The Fifth of November



Remember, remember the Fifth of November,


The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,


I know of no reason


Why the Gunpowder Treason


Should ever be forgot.


Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent


To blow up the King and Parli'ment.


Three-score barrels of powder below


To prove old England's overthrow;


By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)


With a dark lantern and burning match.


Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.


Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!


And what should we do with him? Burn him!
