Remember, remember the fifth of November

gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
’twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!

Der Name der Figur Fawkes spielt auf Guy Fawkes an.

Die "Guy Fawkes"-Maske wurde zum Symbol der Anonymous-Internetbewegung.
