(Sea shanty)

1. A hundred years is a very long time,
Ho, yes, ho!
A hundred years is a very long time,
A hundred years ago.

2. They used to think that pigs could fly,
Ho, yes, ho!
I don’t believe it, no, not I.
A hundred years ago.

3. They thought the moon was made of cheese.
Ho, yes, ho!
You can believe it if you please.
A hundred years ago.

4. They thought the stars were set a-light,
Ho, yes, ho!
By some good angel every night,
A hundred years ago.
