The Mayflower Song
This poem was written as part of The Mayflower script.
It is called a song as it can be sung to the tune of Bobby Shaftoe.
Just the Mayflower fit to sail
Things went fine until that gale
Then directions them did fail
And sent them too far northward.
Deciding to accept their lot
Plymouth or Virginia, it mattered not.
Just as long as they found a plot
To settle their weary bodies.
