Shakespeare and the writer’s take the stage and rock on in a smashing song mentioning every single title of Shakespeare’s plays!
Song from Series 7 Episode 1: Sensational Shakespeare Special.
That’s right it starts, 1589
Yes all these plays of mine,
Well, if you’ve got the time…
First up Two Gentlemen of Verona,
Play number two was The Taming of the Shrew.
Then Henry the Sixth Part Two and Three and
Titus Andronicus, I wrote that too.
Henry Six Part One, Kind of a prequel,
Henry Three, Richard Three, Keeping it regal!
Theatre’s close. Uh-oh, no shows, what to do?
Wrote Sonnets instead- love poems-do you?
Back on track with Comedy of Errors,
Love’s Labours Lost, Love’s Labours Won.
History beckoned, Richard the Second,
I make that a dozen I’ve done.
Romeo and Juliet, I nicked the plot, is where it’s set,
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King John (no sweat).
Merchant of Venice, The Merry Wives of Windsor,
Henry the Fourth, two parts for my sins.
A list of the plays what I wroted,
And you’ll find what I wrote of ten quoted,
My back catalogue is looking bloated,
Deep breath time… [Gasp]
Much Ado About Nothing, Henry the Fifth,
And Julius Caesar, As You Like It,
To be or not to be, Hamlet was writ by me,
Twelfth Night, all right, Troilus and Cressida.
Measure for Measure, Othello, All’s Well,
Oh dear, King Lear, that didn’t end well!
Timon of Athens and Macbeth,
Antony and Cleo-I ain’t finished yet!
A list of the plays what I’ve written,
I’m the greatest playwright in Great Britain,
Still some more, though, if you’re not yet smitten.
One last time…!
Pericles, Prince of Trye, Coriolanus,
Winter’s Tale, Cymbeline, The Tempest-famous,
Cardenio, Henry Eight and then last up
It’s Two Noble Kingsmen!
The end of the list that I wroted,
Not unreasonable how much I’ve gloated,
You’re respect for my work, duly noted,
My plays, they did bubble and boil,
Yes, I brought new life into the soil,
Fit for shuffling off this mortal coil
Stood the test of time…
Who’s name do you all remember?
