Penny For The Guy - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

A Banger, A Cake Poems »

A penny for the guy,
A penny for the guy,
A big umbrella
And a flashy tie,
The guy, the guy,
Pin him in the eye;
Stick him on a lamp post,
Don’t let him die.

Guy Fawkes, Guy.
Hit him in the eye,
Hang him on a lamp-post
And leave him there to die.
Umbrella down the cellar
There I saw a naked fella
Burn his body, save his soul
Please give me a lump of coal;
If a lump of coal won’t do
Please give me half a penny,
The up and down the Drapery
Round and round the Market square,
Guy Fawkes, Guy.
