A hundred years is a very long time,
Oh yes, oh,
A hundred years is a very long time
A hundred years ago.

2. They used to think that pigs could fly
Oh yes, oh,
I don't believe it no, not I
A hundred years ago.

3. They thought the moon was made of cheese
Oh yes, oh,
You can believe it, if you please
A hundred years ago.

4. They thought the stars was set alight
Oh yes, oh,
By some good angel every night
A hundred years ago.

5. They hung a man for making steam
Oh yes, oh,
They cast his body in the stream
A hundred years ago.

6. A hundred years is a very long time
Oh yes, oh,
A hundred years is a very long time
A hundred years ago.

7. I thought I heard our old man say
Oh yes, oh,
That we were homeward bound today
It's time for us to go!

Belay!
