Scott became famous for freezing to death in Antarctica
Columbus made history thinking some island was India
General Custer's a national hero for not knowing when to run
All of these men are famous
And they're also very dumb

History is made by stupid people
Clever people wouldn't even try
If you want a place in the history books
Then do something dumb before you die

Nobility are famous for no reason
Mary Antoinette enjoyed her cake
She caused a revolution when she would not share
And her husband lost his head for that mistake

The Hindenburg was a giant zepplin
Its makers made a minor oversight
Before they filled it up with explosive gas
They should have fixed the no-smoking light

'Cause history is made by stupid people
Clever people wouldn't even try
If you want a place in the history books
Then do something dumb before you die

Tally-ho! Tally-ho!
Our king and country's honour we will save
Tally-ho! Tally-ho!
We're marching into history and the grave

So if your son and daughter seem too lazy
Sitting there watching bad TV
Just remember you should be quite grateful
At least they are not making history

'Cause history is made by stupid people
Clever people wouldn't even try
If you want a place in the history books
Then do something dumb before you die
Do something dumb before you die
Do something dumb before you die
