For an impressive example of this, see "The War of 1812," by
Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie (not by The Arrogant Worms,
though they are often credited with this song, including in
the header of this video):



"And the White House burned, burned, burned,
And we're the ones that did it
It burned, burned, burned,
While the president ran and cried.
It burned, burned, burned,
And things were very historical.
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!"
