Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Day, Parody of

It helps to appreciate this if you've seen Evil Dead II or Army of Darkness, or both!

Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams
Dismember, dismember the undead of November,
Chainsaw shotgun and graveplot.
We see no reason why
The undead can't re-die
When off the head is chop't.

Bruce Campbell did shout
And blow their brains out.
Three Evil Dead movies would show
How medieval Ash could go.

The Necronomicon's curse
Made Ash's hand worse.
So, holler Ash, holler Ash, chop it off fast.
Holler hand, holler hand, for you won't last.

And what did he do with it?
Blast it!

Original text:

Guy Fawkes by George Cruickshanks
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.

By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!
