THE BALLAD OF MAGELLAN
Animaniacs


Yakko:
There once was a man
His name was Magellan
A Portuguese skipper
The girls found him handsome
He sailed with five ships
To find the East Indies
Then come back to Spain
With a bounty of loot

YW+D :
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Oh happy Magellan
Starting your journey
With hardly a care
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Strong, brave Magellan
You'll find the East Indies
You just don't know where

Yakko:
They crossed the Atlantic
And spotted a country
Magellan said

Mglln: It's the East Indies at last!

Yakko: But then someone shouted

Wakko: Hey, that's Argentina!

Yakko:
Magellan got cranky
And chopped down the mast

YW+D :
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Settle down, Magellan
Put down that axe
There's no time to despair
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan
You'll find the East Indies
You just don't know where

Yakko:
A great storm arose
In the mighty Pacific
The five little ships
Were diminished to three
At last land was sighted
Magellan was happy
But then someone shouted

Dot : Hey, that's Chile!

YW+D :
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Cheer up, Magellan
Check out your map
And don't tear out your hair
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan
You'll find the East Indies
You just don't know where

Yakko:
It took them five months
But they crossed the Pacific
They spotted a land
That was dotted with palms
Magellan proclaimed

Mglln: Yes! That's the East Indies!

Yakko: But then someone shouted

Wakko: Hey, I think that's Guam!

YW+D :
Ay-yi-yi-yi
Oops, Magellan
Your fun little journey's
Become a nightmare
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan
You'll find the East Indies
You just don't know where

Yakko:
They sailed due west
To the Philippine Islands
Magellan was pleased
As the natives drew near
But then someone shouted

YW+D : I think they're attacking!

Yakko: Magellan said...

Mglln: ...What?

Yakko: And got hit by a spear

YW+D : Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Farewell, Magellan
You almost made it
It's really not fair
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Oh, ghost of Magellan
The East Indies islands
Were right over there.
