VERSE 1
Mister Christopher Columbus
Sailed the sea without a compass
When his men began a rumpus
Up spoke, Christopher Columbus
REFRAIN 1
“There is land somewhere
So until we get there,
We will not go wrong,
If we sing a swing a song

Since the world is round,
We'll be safe and sound
‘Till our goal is found,
We'll just keep rhythm bound.
REFRAIN 2
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 diplomacy
Christy made history.
VERSE 2
Mister Christopher Columbus
He used rhythm as a compass
Music ended all the rumpus
Wise old Christopher Columbus. Christopher Columbus
