Lonnie Donegan - Battle of New Orleans lyrics

Spoken: Well, this here's the story about the Battle of New Orleans Which was fit between the Yankees of course and them there English people In which the British came off rather ignominiously Means they never done no good, no how, alright, now shut up. Right Well in 1814, we took a little trip Along with Colonel Packenham down the mighty Mississipp' We took a little bacon and we took a little beans And we fought the bloomin British in the town of New Orleans Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin' There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago We fired once more and they began a running On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexicoooo, yeh Weeell, we looked down the river till we see the British come There must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring Well, we stood beside our cotton bales and never sayed a thing Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin' And there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago We fired once more and they began a running On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Ederum a ohderum a ederum a ohderum Well, Packenham said we could take 'em by surprise If we didn't fire a musket till we looked 'em in the eyes Well, we stood quite still till we see their faces well Then we opened up our muskets and we really gave em hell Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin' And there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago And we fired once more and they began a running On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Weeeeell, they rrraan through the briars and they ran through the brambles And they ran through the bushes where the rabbits couldn't go They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch em All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin' There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago We fired once more and they began a running On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexicooooh ah ha tiddly dee Well, we fired our muskets so the barrels melted down Then grabbed an alligator and we fought another round Well, we stuffed his head with cannon balls and powdered his behind So when we touched the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin' There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago We fired once more and they began a running On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
