*** History Book Version ***

Here I stand on the deck of my ship on the Spanish main
I've got a charter in my cabin, signed and sealed by the King of Spain
That his stardard be unfurled past the edge of the world
I dare not go back again
History will be kind and bear me in mind
I remember my name

Let's take a look
At my history book

South Devon pirates buccanneers on the Panama coast
With a cargo of potatoes and Indian princes
But what they want the most
Is to fill that hold with Spanish gold
And make proud their boast
That England will smile on their piracy while
They drink Elizabeth's toast

Let's take a look
At my history book

As a little youth me used to walk to school
Wid me istory book in mi book bag lord
As a little youth me used to walk to school
Wid me istory book in mi book bag lord

Whata mashin whata crashin whata killin of anit I said mine

History book
So now we all gonna take a popal look
History book
And talk about the history you took
Let's take a look
About the part that has neva been told
At my history book
About the gold and the diamonds you stole

Arab trades fly their weapons on the Africa shore
And hapless victums bound in chains on the galleon floor
That their blood may be spilled in the land of Brazil
And they'll see their hopes forlorn
History will be cruel as it uses this tool
To shame the new world more

History book
So now your gonna talk this twist
History book
History teacher get dismissed
Let's take a look
Come talk your lies and your foolishness
At my history book
We want da truth and donna see your lies
