Bonfire prayers

The Bonfire Chant

Bonfire Chant: This is said after the procession and before the bonfire is lit at nearly every Sussex bonfire society, and at the end of every HBBS monthly members meeting.

Remember Remember the fifth of November
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!
