Columbus:
It's a round, round world
It's a round, round world
I contend it's round, and it's gonna be found
When all the results are in
It's a round world now, and it's always been

Ferdinand:
Flat
Flat world
It's a flat, flat world
I insist it's flat as a welcoming mat
And he's sailing off the end
How about our crazy Italian friend?

Columbus:
Friend
Get hip, would I climb aboard this ship
If I didn't have odds the Earth was highly spherical?

Ferdinand:
It's a miracle
If it is

Columbus:
Square, square king
You're a square, square king
If you don't believe
You're gonna receive
The shock of your royal life
When the ship pulls in at Miami

Crew:
Yo ho ho and a Dramamine
We are loyal subjects of the king and queen
But what kind of nut would you have to be
To borrow a ship and put out to sea
When you don't know what's on the other side?

Columbus:
Round, round world
It's a round, round world
I contend it's round
And it's gonna be found
When all the results are in
It's a round world now
And it's always

Ferdinand:
All week long on a hardtack bun
Brother, who said getting there is
Half the fun?
Give up my throne for one navy bean
No wonder I'm turning three shades green
How could I go on such a loony

Columbus:
Trip, get hip, would I climb
Aboard this ship
If I didn't have odds
The Earth was highly spherical?

Ferdinand:
It's a miracle if it is

Crew:
Crazy kind of scheme
It's a cockamamie dream
If we don't sight land we're gonna scream

Columbus:
Square, square crew
You're a square, square crew
If you don't believe

Crew:
Yo ho ho through the wind and rain
There's a typhoon coming up
But where's John Wayne?

Columbus:
You're gonna receive
The shock of your salty lives
When I take command in the name of

Ferdinand:
I feel like a red witch
Having a wake
How much of the ocean bit do you think I can take, claim that land in the name of

Columbus:
Isabella and Ferdinand

Ferdinand:
That's Ferdinand and Isabella

Columbus and Ferdinand:
New rulers of this round, round world

Crew:
Crazy kind of scheme
It's a cockamamie dream
But we hope it's a round, round world

-----

Columbus:
Round, round world
It's a newfound world
And the land looks 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
In an Indian extravaganza
Wyatt Earp or Bonanza

Columbus:
Please don't call us, we'll call you

Ferdinand:
Step aside, pal, meet the new

Columbus and Ferdinand:
Big cheeses of this round, round world
