Gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes Guy Fawkes, twas his intent to blow up King and parliament. Three score barrels were laid below to prove old England's overthrow. By God's mercy he was catched with a dark lantern and burning match. Holler boys, Holler boys, let the bells ring Holler boys Holler boys God save the King. Hip Hip Hoorah! Hip Hip Hoorah! Hip Hip Hoorah!
