This is a very tongue in cheek song about Christopher Columbus discovering America.

A really popular little action song which I wrote for little children. At nursery school they have to “mount your horses” and then just gallop about until “Off the horse we drop” where they usually hurl themselves to the ground and await the next “mount your horses” command. I’ve always maintained that this is the best song to make little children drop off quickly!!!
