Have you heard how the wars began?
Have you heard how the wars begun?
Have you heard how the wars begun
When England fought to a man
And the proud tailor rode prancing away?
Of his shear
board he made a horse
All for him to ride across.
Of his scissors he made
For to keep his horse all in its wits.
And as he
road o're the lea
He spied a flea all on his knee.
Of his needle
he made a spear
All for to prick that flee all in its ear.
his thimble he made a bell
All for to ring that flea's funeral knell.
that is how the wars began
When England fought to a man.
