Stan Freberg's United States of America


YouTube - Stan Freberg - The United States of America: Vol. 1 LP Part2


Quote:
When Columbus tells the Indians he's discovered them, they say:

INDIAN: What you mean, 'discover us'? We discover you here on the beach...is all how you look at it.

COLUMBUS: Yeah, I never thought of that.

COLUMBUS: If you'll direct me to the nearest bank, I'll get a check cashed.

INDIAN: You out of luck today, banks closed.

COLUMBUS: Why?

INDIAN: Columbus Day!

COLUMBUS: Oh, yeah...ahem...we going out on that joke?

INDIAN: No, we do reprise of song. That help...

COLUMBUS AND INDIAN: ...but not much, no...

(MUSIC: "Round Round World"-reprise

COLUMBUS:

Round round world,
It's a newfound world
And it'll wind up good
like a continent should
complete with a flag unfurled--


INDIANS:

Yo-ho-ho and a buckskin sleeve
Now the white man's here
I guess it's time to leave
But why go to war and
fight like a jerk?
Perhaps we can pick up
some kind of work--

INDIANS: In an Indian extravaganza -

INDIAN CHIEF: Wyatt Earp or Bonanza -

COLUMBUS: Please don't call us, we'll call you -

KING FERDINAND: Step aside, pal, meet the new -

ALL: Big cheeses of this round, round world!

Happy Columbus Day to Native Americans everywhere. Stan Freberg here.
I can't help it.....I grew up on Stan Freberg............he still makes me laugh

As David Letterman said,

We should thank Christopher Columbus for discovering America, or as it is known today,....a "fixer upper".
