A Shorter Way To the Indies
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Ben Stiefel


This song is available on Ben Stiefel's Christopher Columbus Rockin’ Biography

"In Europe, people sailed east to reach the Indies, the land of silk, spices, and gold.
Columbus looked for a quicker way. One, two, three - repeat after me…"

Lyrics:

Christopher Columbus - Explorer, so grand
Had an idea - Came up with a plan

One day he imagined - A route he thought best
To reach the Indies - He would sail west

Chorus
A Shorter Way - A Shorter Way
To the Indies - He'd find a way
A quicker voyage - Across the sea
To the Indies - He'd make history

Take a trip Asia - Cast off and sail
That was the plan - He thought couldn't fail

Circling the globe - It's westward, I'll sail
Then I'll reach Eastern Asia - There's no way I can fail

(repeat chorus)

Find a new way, hey
Find a new way, hey
To reach the Indies
Hip, hip, hooray, hey

Find a new way, hey
Find a new way, hey
To reach the Indies
Hip, hip, hooray, hey

(instrumental solo)
(repeat chorus)
