This may come as a total shock
But on the Mayflower sailin'
And landing then at Plymouth Rock
Was kin to Sarah Palin.
Among those Pilgrims we hold dear---
Their family names we know---
Were relatives of Richard Gere
And Marilyn Monroe.
Clint Eastwood, and perhaps his chair,
And even George Bush II
Can boast that they had family there
With passengers and crew.
Just think of it, if on that shore
The Mayflower hadn't rolled
We wouldn't have Hugh Hefner or
His stapled centerfold.
