Steam Powered Giraffe – Captain Albert Alexander chords
CWhen he was a boyGhe wanted to playAm Fdown by the seaCAt age thirteenGeveryday after schoolAm Fhe would always sail around the lakeCAll the people would stand and stareGas he sailed around with precision and careC or AmWith his bi-corner hat and the way he would standG or Fhe looked just like a Navy manAm FAll the townsfolk would gather and say, and sing awayCCaptain Albert AlexanderGHe'll be a brave seafarer somedayCBut that Captain Albert AlexanderAm FHe'll go down in the wavesBy age twenty four he had left the shore and was sailing for the Queen On a dark starry night Albert awoke to the sound of his Captain screaming as he was drowned The Navy crew was taking a lick pirates had invaded the ship But Albert with one aimed harpoon ignited their rum with a spark and soon flames drove the pirates away the Navy sang Captain Albert Alexander Saved his crew from pirate slaughter But that Captain Albert Alexander He'll go down in the water Now everyone dance Dance. Dance. Twenty some odd years later On his ship The Sea Slater He sailed into a mass of blubber Gazing up to the sky stood a large walrus that was a hundred stories high, it meant no harm The walrus was in a great deal of pain It suffered from a tusk with tooth decay Albert threw his anchor 'round it's tusk with a little bit of pulling it was out by dusk The walrus thanked Albert and sang, as he sailed away Captain Albert Alexander Friend to sea urchin and me But that Captain Albert Alexander He'll go down in the sea At a ripe old age lightning struck from the sky and split Albert's vessel in two One hundred men fled for their lives on rafts across the ocean blue Albert stood at the stern of his ship A giant octopus had him in it's grip A vortex of spiraling death below ripped and sharks and electric eels all made the trip to see Albert sink to the bottom of the sea Just before he went down he called out to his crew It's obvious that my time has come I'll let this ending ensue I've led an exciting nautical life it would seem and there's no better end than a death by the sea His crew sang Captain Albert Alexander He went down in the sea But that Captain Albert Alexander He'll go down in history That Captain Albert Alexander He went down in the sea
