Jim Kweskin - Christopher Columbus lyrics

Berry-Razaf

Mr. Christopher Columbus
Sailed the sea without a compass
Well, When his men began a rumpus
Up spoke Christopher Columbus.

He said : 'There is land somewhere'
'So until we get there we will not go wrong'
'If we sing a swing song'
'Since the world is round we'll be safe and sound'
'Til our goal is found we'll just keep the rhythm bound'.

Soon the crew was makin' merry
The came a yell : 'Let's drink to Isabel'
'Bring on the rum'
A music in that all the rumpus
A wise old Christopher Columbus.

Soon the crew was makin' merry and Mary got mad
Then came a yell : 'Let's drink to Isabel'
'So bring on the rum'
A music in that all the rumpus
A wise old Christopher Columbus.

Christopher Columbus
Christopher Columbus
Christopher Columbus.
