Horrible Histories – Divorced, Beheaded, Died lyrics

Divorced, beheaded and died.
Divorced, beheaded, survived
.
I'm Henry VIII, I had six sorry wives.
Some might say I ruined their lives.

Catherine of Aragon was one
She failed to give me a son.
I had to ask her for a divorce
That broke her poor heart, of course

Young Anne Boleyn she was two,
had a daughter the best she could.
I said she flirted with some other man
And off for the chop went dear Anne.

Lovely Jane Seymour was three,
The love of a lifetime for me.
She gave me a son, little Prince Ed,
Then poor old Jane, went and dropped dead.

Divorced
, beheaded and died.
Divorced, beheaded, survived.
I'm Henry VIII, I had six sorry wives.
Some might say I ruined their lives.

Anne of Cleves came as four,
I fell for the portrait I saw.
Then laid on her face and cried, 'She's a horse! I must have another divorce.'

Catherine Howard was five,
A child of nineteen, so alive.
She flirted with others, no way to behave.
The axe sent young Cath to her grave.

Catherine Parr she was last.
By then all my best days were past.
I lay on my deathbed aged just fifty-five,
Lucky Catherine the last stayed alive.
(I mean, how unfair!)

Divorced, beheaded and died.
Divorced, beheaded, survived.
I'm Henry VIII, I had six sorry wives.
You could say I ruined their lives.

    Catherine of Aragon was unlucky. She was married to two of Henry the Seventh sons. The first marriage to Arthur turned into a widow. The second marriage ended in divorce when she failed to give Henry the eighth a son instead she bore him a daughter, who later became Mary the first.
