Horrible Histories – Georgian Navy lyrics

Sailors:
Were the Georgian navy
We've never been beat
Thanks to Admiral Nelson
Commander of the fleet

Nelson:
The only things I've lost is this eye and this arm

Sailor:
Yes, playing with these balls
Can really do you harm (ow)
He's the gaffe
He's the boss
Knows every naval trick
Surprising thing about him is
Sailing makes him sick

All:
Georgian navy
Georgian navy
This is gonna be your Waterloo
Nelson's navy
Nelson's navy
We're gonna sink one more than you!

Nelson:
England expects every man to do his duty right

Sailors:
Your side's not just from England
You trying to start a fight?

Scottish sailor:
I'm from Scotland

Irish sailor:
Ireland

Welsh sailor:
Wales

A transfer from France:
I transferred from the French

All:
We've even got West Indians sitting on the bench

Nelson:
Some of them were forced to sign some chose to join my crew

sailors:
We fight to get our win bonus
Mostly we fight for you

England (sort of)
England (well, nah, it's not)
We're gonna sink one more than you
Rule Britannia
Rule Britannia

Nelson:
When it comes to my attack the gunners are my team

Gunners:
We got the strongest arsenal the world has ever seen
Thanks our team practice we are magic with a ball

Nelson:
It means the French and Spanish ships
Don't stand a chance at All

Sailors:
We can get nasty injuries
Sometimes it's best to die
If you're hit by the enemy
You're lucky to survive (Magic sponge? Magic saw!)

Nelson:
You've got to wait to fight
Only do it when it's right
Got to break their line
They'll be swimming in the brine
Pick your time to shoot
Then they're ships we're going to loot
Going to be a hoot
For scurvy have some fruit

Sailor:
Half-time orange, anyone?

All:
Georgian navy
Georgian navy

Nelson:
Won at Trafalgar but got shot (ow!)

Sailors:
Nelson's Navy
Nelson's navy
You think it's all over

Nelson:
(Kiss me, Hardy)

Hardy:
It is now!
