The Black Rats Of London

In our beautiful pursuit of manifest destiny We give ourselves great credit, we thank the Good Lord so earnestly But something's been omitted by the writers of history Now stand up all unsung heroes who made this world for you and me Jamestown Night crawlers cleared the forests of seedlings, nuts and leaves And everything everywhere dried up and the natives got the dry heaves Mosquitoes brought malaria and bees brought their hives And the Indians got less scarier with yellow skin and eyes Hoorah, hooray, the black rats of London They crossed the sea for you and me Let's raise a glass so thankfully Hail, hail, hooray, the black rats of London Made the long treacherous passage to Spread their natural juices, a gift to you, a gift to you Yorktown Parasites decimated the red army of Cornwallis and his flock Standing weakly on Yorktown battlefield with measles and small pox Horses, hogs, chickens and dogs and John Rolfe's prized worms Divine intervention, bacterial strains from imported English dirt Hoorah, hooray, the black rats of London They crossed the sea for you and me Let's raise a glass so thankfully Hail, hail, hooray, the black rats of London
