Alexander Beetle
D G C Gi had a little beetle, so that beetle was his name
C G D and i called him Alexander and he answered just the same
G D G C Gand i put him in a matchbox and i kept him all the day
C G D Gbut nanny let my beetle out and beetle ran away
D G C Gshe said she didn't mean it and i never said she did
C G Dshe said she wanted matches and she just took off the lid
G C Gshe said i mustn't worry and i really mustn't mind
C G Dthat there's lots and lots of beetles thats she's certain we could find
G C Gsaid if we looked in all the places that a beetle might be near
C G Dand we made the kind of noises that a beetle likes to hear
G D G C Gthen i heard a kind of something and i gave a sort of shout
D Git was a beetle house and Alexander beetle coming out
