Lynch, Stephen - A History Lesson Lyrics

Ben Franklin went out one night,
Tied a key to the end of a kite,
Electricity struck so bright,
Write it down mother fuckas.

Isaac newton sat under a tree,
An apple hit him in the head
So said so holy shit thats gravity,
Write it down mother fuckas.

Pilgrims raced against the clock,
Lookin for a place to dock,
They said fuck it heres plymouth rock,
Write it down mother fuckas.

A dude named orville wright,
Told his brother said lets invent flight,
Wilbur said aight,
Right it down mother fuckas.

Abe lincoln led the nation,
Freed slaves from the plantation,
Thats mother fuckin proclamation,
Write it down [some weird word].

Ghandi is what you said,
An indian with a bald head,
And he was a little bit under fed,
Write it down mother fuckas

    In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
    Columbus sailed the ocean blue
    Finding America was the breakthrough
    Write it dooownnn motherfuckaaaaasss...

    Clayton Tongate

    @yodaisgod2 Sorry, just had to do it. lol


    @Clayton Tongate LOL...I understand.


    +Clayton Tongate correct. the spanish had trade routes all over the americas (which is why the queen of spain agreed to fund the voyage when, literally, everyone else told him to fuck off) . theyd been there so long that when columbus went to st. augustine, florida he described the fort as been there for at least 40 years and taken at least 40 years to build.


    @Pyrain Oh look, another Debbie Downer.

    Robert Corbell

    Pyrain, Columbus was the first white man since the Norwegian Vikings landed in 1000 under Thorwald and Leif Eriksson in Canada, only to have their settlement wrecked and forced to escape after only a few winters by the Micmac because in typical Viking fashion raped the women and burned their shit to the ground. Columbus got the credit as he had the Dominicans build the first Catholic missions in his four voyages in 1492, 1494, 1497, and 1502 across the Caribbean under orders of Queen Isabella and the Inquisition after being told to find a trade route to Japan (which no white man had yet been to), China, and India and Indonesia, the latter two he and the crew all thought they landed in due to the loincloths and long hair on the tribal natives giving the appearance of South Indian Hindus or Indonesian Dayaks (hence the term "Indian" for Native Americans). It was Hernando De Soto's former lieutenant Pedro Menendez who in 1565 who landed in Florida after Ponce De Leon and Cabeza De Vaca had failed to capture it from the Timucua and Seminoles found Fort Caroline, which took FOUR years to build and was built by French Protestants fleeing religious persecution in Catholic France only to then upon completion be massacred in the name of the church by him and his men and have it given the holy name of St. Augustine. In fact, it scared the English so much, this is why they settled so far north in what became known as New England.,_Florida
