Maxine Sullivan: Mister Christopher Columbus

from 10/30/07 vocal by Maxine Sullivan. Original recording by Andy Kirk
The 10/8/07 Times' discussed the mysteries of Chris' heritage
Mister Christopher Columbus
Sailed the sea without a compass
When his men began a rumpus
Up spoke, Christopher Columbus
There is land somewhere
Until we get there,
We will not go wrong,
If we sing, "swing a song"
Since the world is round,
We'll be safe and sound
Til our goal is found,
We'll just keep rhythm bound
Soon the crew was makin merry
Then came a yell, "Let's drink to Isabelle,
Hum, bring the rum, Ho Hum"
No more mutiny,
What a time at sea
With di-plo-ma-cy
Christy made his-to-ry
Mister Christopher Columbus
He used rhythm as a compass
Music ended all the rumpus
Wise old Christopher Columbus
