Once upon a time I had this idea
That the world was round like me
So I asked the queen for three fine ships
To sail across the sea

Traveling with hoodlums as my crewman
Made me quite a little scared
Luckily I found that in the new world
Somebody was already there

I wasn't very sure just what to call them
See the funny clothes they wear
So I called them indians
'cause I knew they were already there
