5th November – Bonfire Night

Remember, remember the fifth of November, GUY-FAWKES (1)

The gunpowder treason and plot.

I see no reason why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, ‘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 catched,

With a dark lantern and lighted match.

Holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring

Holler boys, holler boys, God save the King
