Columbus sailed the ocean blue

To find the United States,

In three small ships, he carried his crew,

And none of the three were mates.

He found a land in western seas

And Indians galore,

With jabbering parrots in the trees,

And sharks along the shore.

He filled his pockets with sparkling stones

And took to the mighty main,

With a couple of slaves, some nuts and cones

For the glorious king of Spain.

Now this is the tale that Columbus told

And most of the tale is true,

How he crossed the seas, a sailor bold,

In fourteen ninety-two.
