Of all the kings called Henry, I'm the one you've rarely heard. Shakespeare wrote four, five, six, eight but seven not a word. People think I'm dreary, to some extent I am. But look a little closer, glam, bam, thank you mam!
I didn't agree with King Richard three, So I fought him at Bosworth field and won, victory! How cool does it sound, that I'm the king who found, Richards crown in a hedge on the winning battle ground. The only way to end war and avert further disaster, There's got to be a way to unite York and Lancaster.
I'm the original ch-ch-ch Tudor, Founder of that dynasty. The man who closes, the wars of the roses, That's right, that's right, that's me!
I launched attacks on lords who earned stacks, Mine was a noble cause to tap them all for tax. They paid their share, was only fair, To making good rich and be a millionaire. Elizabeth York became my wife for life, that make me a bore? Joined our family seats, that's neat, made my rule secure.
I'm the original ch-ch-ch Tudor, Returning power to the state. It seemed quite toothless but actually ruthless, I made the monarchy great.
Spent a long time fighting, pretenders to the throne, Lambert Simnel, Perkin Warbeck said my throne was their own. They claimed they'd been the princes, in the tower their rule delayed, I said 'this crown aint big enough for the three of us' and had one slayed.
I'm the original ch-ch-ch Tudor, King of foreign policy. Doing hostile relations with enemy nations, I asked them a-make friends with me.
Yeh, the original ch-ch-ch Tudor, They say dullness my main trait. Well that's a sad endightment, cause if you're looking for excitement, My son was Henry the Eighth.
