Columbus

Fourteen hundred ninety-two

Columbus sailed the ocean blue.


He had three ships and left from Spain;

He sailed through sunshine, wind and rain.



He sailed by night; he sailed by day;

He used the stars to guide his way.


Ninety sailors were on board;

Some men sailed while others snored.


Then the workers went to sleep;

And others sailed the ocean deep.


Day by day they looked for land;

They dreamed of trees and rocks and sand.


October 12 their dreams came true,

You never saw a happier crew!


Then in fourteen hundred ninety-two

Columbus sailed the ocean blue.
