Ye olde firework poem

Birthday Fireworks For The Weekend :)

Here is another poem which used to be sung every year, but is not often heard nowadays as it is considered a bit gruesome:

A penny loaf to feed the Pope

A farthing o' cheese to choke him.

A pint of beer to rinse it down.

A faggot of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar.

Burn him like a blazing star.

Burn his body from his head.

Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.

Hip hip hoorah!

Hip hip hoorah hoorah!
