Armada!

V1
We’ll tell you of a story that happened long ago,
When Spain’s King Philip got angry and let the English know,
He sent a Spanish Armada so he could then invade,
And our Queen Bess, in her fine dress, was certainly afraid!

 

Chorus

 

Oh, we beat the Spanish Armada,
We did! We did!
We beat the Spanish Armada,
We did! We did!
We beat the Spanish Armada
Just outside Calais harbour,
We beat the Spanish Armada
Back in Fifteen Eighty-Eight.

 

V2
Sir Francis Drake was bowling when word came from the Queen,
To fight the Spanish Armada the biggest ever seen!
The Navy gathered in Plymouth and planned out their attack
So our Queen Bess could sort this mess, and stop them coming back!

 

Chorus

 

V3
Just outside France near Calais the Spanish lay in wait,
But Francis sent them his fire ships and this did seal their fate,
The weakened Spanish Armada the north they had to flee,
And our Queen Bess, we must confess, enjoyed the victory!

 

Chorus

 

Yes, and our Queen Bess, we must confess, enjoyed the victory!
