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!
