Battle Of New Orleans

In 1814 we took a little trip,
along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans,
and we fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Oh we looked down the river and we see'd the British come.
There must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on a drum.
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring.
We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise,
if we didn't fire our muskets till we looked 'em in the eyes.
We held our fire till we seen their faces well,
then we opened up our squirrel guns and gave 'em well... we...

... fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles and
they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em on down
the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fired our cannons till the barrels melted down,
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind,
and when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles and
they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em on down
the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Who'd have though prehistoric country music could be so good?

That's just plain crap. Not even worth posting here to make fun of. Tit.

The Science songs would be much more fun to post here.

Hey, I grew up on this stuff! Battle of New Orleans, Billy Bayeau, Delta Dawn, Rose Garden, my parents loved it all.

Did you know that song was written by a school teacher as an aide memoire for his students?

Such wits, do however never underestimate the power of the science songs.
(Recommendation : The ballad of Sir Isaac Newton)

There is only one science song, The Elements by Tom Lehrer.

Continuing the eclectic music theme I actually have the original 10" (weird size I know) of that album.

Gayle, thanks.
Although, I still consider The ballad of Sir Isaac Newton the better one.

We learned a different version in High School, which had the first 20 elements in order, and fitted exactly into the first verse.

10 points to the first person to tell me who wrote the music to that song.

I am the very model of a modern major general.

I like Johnny Cash because I walk the line

However I also like Holst "The Planets". They even came out with another one (New worlds), that covers the planets not covered in the 1st one.
