The Plymouth Rap

Plymouth!

Plymouth!

We’re gonna have fun

Learning ‘bout the Pilgrims

And Native Americans!

Plymouth!

Plymouth!

We’re gonna have fun

Learning ‘bout the Pilgrims

And Native Americans!

The Separatists lived in England.

They just wanted to pray.

But they didn’t want to do it

In old King James way.

They left and went to Holland

Where they mingled with the Dutch.

But they didn’t like their culture.

It was just too much.

So they went back to London.

Bargained for a boat

But the Speedwell was wack

And wouldn’t stay afloat

They jumped on the Mayflower

It didn’t go fast

The storms tossed them about

And everyone cast

Plymouth!

Plymouth!

We’re having lots of fun

Learning bout the Pilgrims

and Native Americans!

Land Ho! In November

On Cape Cod they went aground

Some lived on the boat

While the others looked around.

They settled on a hill

That was easy to defend.

No one knew if the natives

Would be foe or friend.

Soon winter came

And they just weren’t down.

Most of them got sick

And half didn’t stick around.

Lucky for those left

Squanto saved the day.

He and the Wampanoag

Showed them the way.

They planted beans and squash

And lots of yellow maize.

Hunted rabbits turkeys deer

And had Thanksgiving Day.

Plymouth!

Plymouth!

We’re having lots of fun

Learning bout the Pilgrims

And Native Americans!

Plymouth!

Plymouth!

We’re having lots of fun

Learning bout the Pilgrims

and Native Americans!
