Remember, Remember, The Fifth of November

Remember, Remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, Treason and plot.
We see no reason, why gunpowder treason,
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, guy, ’twas his intent,
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.

By god’s mercy he was catch’d,
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring,
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!
