    (A parody of Empire State of Mind by JayZ and Alicia Keyes))


    We're the pilgrim fathers
    You may have heard rather
    A lot 'bout our notions
    Crossing the ocean
    On the good ship Mayflower
    But it's true our journey
    Turned into quite a commotion.

    People report that we sported these hats
    But that's not true, I mean, would you?
    Anyway the main thing to say
    We began the USA
    Our little band of religion fans
    From the East Midlands.

    We all believed slowly
    That England was becoming less holy
    So set off for Holland
    'Cos there we had friends
    But in the end seemed the Netherlands
    Would never be the land, we planned.

    Couldn't stand to remain on that terrain
    So again we rearranged
    To start a new nation with our congregation
    A new and calmer life took a farmer and a builder and his wife
    And a clerica, to find America.

    Oh it's a new world
    It wasn't new to the natives
    Still we thought we'd claim it
    Yeah, it's the new world.

    I still remember 9th of November
    The year 1620 and we saw plenty of land
    We thanked God when we found ground
    I kept calm but it didn't go as planned.

    Couldn't land on the sand
    A month later though, we made it
    New Plymouth man, we claimed it
    The natives said not
    But ran when we shot.

    Moved there it proved yeah
    That life would be tough
    'Cos we didn't have enough
    Of the right stuff.
    Did you know had no seeds we could grow
    Although William Mullins had stacked
    126 pairs of shoes in his pack
    Now that's whack.

    A fishing rod, a plough,
    A pig, or a cow
    Would have been a much better idea
    But now there's no food for us to eat
    Does this mean that we'll meet with de feet!

    No fun in the new world
    I'm glad we've arrived here
    But will we survive here
    Yeah, in the new world.

    People were staving
    Our numbers halving
    And when the winter winds blew
    Even fewer live through
    It wasn't pretty in our new city
    But the natives took pity even though
    They didn't have to.

    Man called Squanto
    Showed us how to grow maize
    Catch eel for a meal
    Chopped up in the baze
    Tribe gave us a feast
    Our starvation ceased
    In 1621 what they had done
    Turned us back from the dead
    To the living and to this day
    That's why we have thanks-giving.

    In Massachusetts built a colony it's true
    They say modern America was founded by our crew
    It's a new world
    But we can't call it England
    Let's call it New England
    Yeah, in the world.

    My home was in Plymouth
    Lets call it New Plymouth
    I got an idea let's call this New Hampshire
    Wait I'm from Newcastle
    Can we call it New Newcastle?
    It's a new world.
