The Battle Of New Orleans Lyrics


by Lonnie Donegan. From Oh Boy!.


(spoken: ) Well, this heres the story of the Battle of New Orleans,
which was fit between the errr ... Yankees ocorst and the English people,
in which the British came off rather ignominiously means they never done no good no how alright shuddup right

WELL in 1814, we took a little trip,
along with Colonel Packenham down the mighty Mississipp.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans,
and we fought the bloomin British in the town of New Orleans

Chorus
Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began a running,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexicoooo, yeh

Weeell, we looked down the river till we see the British come,
there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum.
They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring,
well, we stood beside our cotton bales and never sayed a thing.

Chorus
Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
and there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began a running,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
ederum a ohderum a ederum a ohderum

Well, Packenham said we could take em by surprise,
if we didn't fire a musket till we looked `em in the eyes.
Well, we stood quite still till we see their faces well,
then we opened up our muskets and we really gave em ..

Chorus
Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
and there wasn't nigh as many as there was a - - - -
and we fired once more and they began a running,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Weeeeell, they rrraan through the briars and they ran through the brambles,
and they ran through the bushes where the rabbits couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch em,
all down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Chorus
Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began a running,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexicooooh ah ha tiddly dee
Well, we fired our muskets so the barrels melted down,
then grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
Well, we stuffed his head with cannon balls and powdered his behind,
so when we touched the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind.

Chorus
Well, we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began a running,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
