« Gunpowder and Treason

Remember, Remember. »

My brave lads remember
The fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot;
We will drink, smoke and sing, boys,
And here’s health to our King, boys,
For he shall not be forgot.

1827 Every Day Book

Oh pile it up high,
For tonight… yes tonight…
When it blazes up bright
A traitor must die!
How he’ll crackle and burn,
Our jolly old guy!
In the middle we’ll throw him,
No mercy we’ll show him,
The traitor must die!
Go, old ragamuffin,
Don’t stop to ask why,
You know that the reason
Was Gunpowder Treason!
So, burn till you die.

19th Century Old Guy Fawkes
