Vasco de Gama made many immense mistakes
The bold sailor was a cruel man
Sailing around the Atlantic, sighting many wakes
Vasco de Gama made many immense mistakes of mistakes
Appointed a viceroy, de Gama didn’t get any breaks
Unfortunately, he ignored his general plan
Vasco de Gama made many immense mistakes of mistakes
The bold sailor was a cruel man
