From Mr. Omsennis, a history teacher: This is a song I wrote for for my 6th grade world history class. Here are the lyrics:

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him here
I remember three Roman dudes when I was in school
Marcus Crassus and Pompius too
They were 2/3 of the triumvirate rule
But coolest one I remember is Julius Caesar rule.

He gave out land to soldiers who fought with him in Gaul.
He gave the Greeks and Spaniards citizenship and all.
Well he crossed the Rubicon when Rome was about to fall.
He became the dictator and the glory of it all.
Some senators hated him and they wanted him to fall.
Well the Ides of March came and I shall never forget when
Marcus Junious Brutus led the senators that day
And they stabbed Julius Caesar 23 times they say

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him here
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
O judgment! Thou art fled to brutal beasts,
And men have lost their reason.... Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me.
