1492

This is a traditional MAD FIGS running song. It is usually led by the Incredible Guy, sometimes joined by Melquiades or Scott Dogg if there are enough followers.
To perform the song, the leader shouts a line, and everyone else repeats it.

In fourteen-hundred and ninety-two
A sailor from New Delhi
Was walkin' round the streets of Spain
Sellin' hot tamales

He said the world was round-o
He said it could be found-o
That hypothetical, calculating son-of-a-gun Columbo

He walked right up to the Queen of Spain
He asked for ships and cargo
He said he'd be a son-of-a-gun if he didn't bring back Chicago

The first mate the first mate
Boy he had a big 'un
Wrapped it twice around the mast
and used the rest for riggin'

He said the world was round-o
He said it could be found-o
That hypothetical, calculating son-of-a-gun Columbo
