Ok so today in class my teacher randomly started talking about the fact that i play guitar and she decided instead of doing a project on Cortez and the Aztecs i shoukd write a song. So my problem is i have no idea what to write for a song about cortez and the aztecs. If anyone wants to help me out with this that would be splendid.

Thank you in advance

Wow, you get told to play guitar instead of write an essay and you still can't be assed to do it yourself and instead recruit the help of a throbbing mass of self-pleasuring incestuous rapists?

Just do an instrumental and when your teacher asks how it was related to the topic, start crying about how she was too ignorant to see the meaning in the music. Then make dramatic exit.
ohai little sig.

Yea just make it funny with some accurate historical facts sprinkled in, and you'll do fine.

Watch the movie 'Road to Eldorado' then just get all the 'facts' from that movie, sing them over a progression in C and you're done.

How about you do it yourself? Look up some information..that's what computers are for...
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

You could write about Cortez building a catapult/trebuchet that threw the boulder on itself and how he still won because he was major epic win or whatever.

"Cortez The Killer"

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects
gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood
straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them
to the flatlands
And they died along the way
But they built up
with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer.

The aztecs lived in a place now called mexico
There's a little tidbit you probably didn't know
Lived free of the white man for hundreds of years
but that would all change for the end was near

An alliance of three meant to keep all happy
Based on the eagle on the prickly pear
The people lived with few enemies to fear
But soon this would change for the end was near

Run escape, leave this fate
The pox will kill, nowhere is safe

... all for now, if you want to use it or any part go ahead, not great, but alright for looking up **** on wikipedia.

Disagree with their methods,
