Christopher Columbus Songs
Lyrics (see actions on next page)
(CHORUS)
Oh, please Mr. Columbus, turn the ship around
I wanna be able to feel my two feet on the ground.
Oh why'd ya tell Isabella that the world was
round.
Oh please Mr. Columbus, turn the ship around.
In fourteen hundred ninety two three ships sailed out to sea
The Nina, and the Pinta, and the Santa Marie.
And as they sailed the stormy seas that mad
historic day.
A way up in the crow's nest you can hear
Luigi say... (Repeat Chorus)
Then Chris took out his mandolin and he began
to play
They sang and danced the Tarantell until the
break of day.
They ate up all the provolone and drank up all the bugjuice.
But still up in the crow's nest you can hear
Luigi say... (Repeat Chorus)
And then one day they sighted land just off the starboard bow
Columbus said "I told ya so the journey's over now.
An Indian shouted from the shore "Tu Bella
Beesh Amma"
Luigi shouted back, "Hey-Capish Italian!"
(Repeat Chorus)
Oh please Mr. Columbus don't take me back no
more
I wanna stay right here and make the chief my
father in law.
I'm glad you told Isabella that the world was
round
I don't know where we are but there's pisanos all around. (Repeat Chorus)

Columbus' First Voyage
to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb"
Columbus sailed the ocean blue,
Ocean blue, ocean blue.
Columbus sailed the ocean blue
In 1492.
He sailed west to reach the east,
reach the east, reach the east,
He sailed west to reach the east
In 1492.
Asian shores he never reached,
Never reached, never reached,
Asian shores he never reached,
In 1492.
Instead, a whole new land he found,
Land he found, land he found,
Instead, a whole new land he found,
In 1492.
Columbus Sailed the Ocean Blue
to the tune of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"
Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.
Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.
With three tall ships, 120 men,
sailing on, sailing on, sailing on, on, on, on -Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.

He proved the earth was round, not flat, in 1492.
He proved the earth was round, not flat, in 1492.
With three tall ships, 120 men,
sailing on, sailing on, sailing on, on, on, on -He proved the earth was round, not flat in 1492.
There Was a Man
to the tune of "B-I-N-G-O."
There was a man lived long ago,
Who dreamed a special dream -Christopher Columbus,
Christopher Columbus,
Christopher Columbus,
Dreamed a special dream.
He dreamed that he could reach the East
By sailing, sailing West -Sailing, sailing on,
Sailing, sailing on,
Sailing, sailing on,
Until he spotted land.
He left his ships and went ashore
To meet the Tainto people,
Who met him with gifts,
Who met him with gifts,
Who met him with gifts
Of food and birds and gold.
He thought he was in India,
The continent of Asia,
Called the people "Indians,"
Called the people "Indians,"
Called the people "Indians,"
He thought he had reached Asia.
Three more voyages he did make
Across the Atlantic Ocean,
Never discovering,
Never imagining,
Never even knowing
He'd found a whole New World.
