The Lyrics

The 2nd of my parodies dealing with British History, this is about the Jacobite Uprisings of the 18th Century when the Stuart line led by Bonnie Prince Charlie. attempted to regain the British throne.
There's fighting, in the hills and glens
Behind those hills and glens
Charlie pretends, he's the one that keeps the dream alive,
From the Highlands, through the Lowlands,
To the court at Versailles

Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite rebellion back in '45
Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite Rebellion back in '45

And singing, about Johnnie Cope are ye waking Yet?
We don't care about no Government garrisons
About the Duke of Cumberland
Or the Disarming Act

Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite rebellion back in '45
Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite Rebellion back in '45


Everybody needs a Stuart for a Monarch
Everybody needs a Stuart
(Repeat 2x)
Rebel in '45

Lord George Murray ('45)
Clan Maclea ('45)
Battle of Prestonpans('45)
Doune Castle ('45)
Seven Men of Mordait ('45)
Écossais Royeaux and the Irish Brigade
The Atholl Highlanders and the Clifton Moor Skirmish
Battle of Falkirk ('45)
Duke of Perth ('45)
Earl of Olgilvy ('45)
Lord Lewis Gordon ('45)

Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite rebellion back in '45
Jacobite Rebellion back in '45
Well, it's a Jacobite Rebellion back in '45


Everybody needs a Stuart for Monarch
Everybody needs a Stuart
(Repeat 5x)
Rebel in '45

5,000 man invasion force

Everybody needs a Stuart for a monarch
Until Culloden-

I have a very strong interest in history and I love the parody. I had to play the tune on you tube to make sure if the parody fits in with the original song. Not a bad job of it.
