VERSE 1
      G
I was riding on the Mayflower
       G
When I thought I spied some land
  G
I yelled for Captain Arab
  G
I have yuh understand
         C
Who came running to the deck
       C
Said, “Boys, forget the whale
     G
Look on over yonder
        G
Cut the engines, change the sail
D
Haul on the bowline”
   D
We sang that melody
     G
Like all tough sailors do
              G                 | G | % | % | % |
When they are far away at sea


VERSE 2
    G
 “I think I’ll call it America”
  G
I said as we hit land
  G
I took a deep breath
       G
I fell down, I could not stand
C
Captain Arab he started
C
Writing up some deeds
   G
He said, “Let’s set up a fort
          G
And start buying the place with beads”
D
Just then this cop comes down the street
D
Crazy as a loon
   G
He throws us all in jail
    G                  | G | % | % | % |
For carryin’ harpoons


VERSE 3
   G
Ah me I busted out
      G
Don’t even ask me how
  G
I went to get some help
         G
I walked by a Guernsey cow
      C
Who directed me down
       C
To the Bowery slums
      G
Where people carried signs around
G
Saying, “Ban the bums”
D
I jumped right into line
           D
Sayin’, “I hope that I’m not late”
       G
When I realized I hadn’t eaten
     G                   | G | % | % | % |
For five days straight


VERSE 4
  G
I went into a restaurant
G
Lookin’ for the cook
  G
I told them I was the editor
     G
Of a famous etiquette book
    C
The waitress he was handsome
          C
He wore a powder blue cape
  G
I ordered some suzette, I said
            G
 “Could you please make that crepe”
D
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
             D
From boilin’ fat
G
Food was flying everywhere
      G                    | G | % | % | % |
And I left without my hat


VERSE 5
     G
Now, I didn’t mean to be nosy
      G
But I went into a bank
   G
To get some bail for Arab
            G
And all the boys back in the tank
     C
They asked me for some collateral
     C
And I pulled down my pants
     G
They threw me in the alley
        G
When up comes this girl from France
      D
Who invited me to her house
  D
I went, but she had a friend
    G
Who knocked me out and robbed my boots
          G                      | G | % | % | % |
And I was on the street again


VERSE 6
        G
Well, I rapped upon a house
         G
With the U.S. flag upon display
  G
I said, “Could you help me out
           G
I got some friends down the way”
    C
The man says, “Get out of here
     C
I’ll tear you limb from limb”
             G
I said, “You know they refused Jesus, too”
   G
He said, “You’re not Him
D
Get out of here before I break your bones
             D
I ain’t your pop”
    G
I decided to have him arrested
           G
And I went looking for a cop

VERSE 7
  G
I ran right outside
      G
And I hopped inside a cab
  G
I went out the other door
     G
This Englishman said, “Fab”
      C
As he saw me leap a hot dog stand
      C
And a chariot that stood
G
Parked across from a building
     G
Advertising brotherhood
  D
I ran right through the front door
       D
Like a hobo sailor does
           G
But it was just a funeral parlor
            G                    | G | % | % | % |
And the man asked me who I was


VERSE 8
    G
I repeated that my friends
            G
Were all in jail, with a sigh
   G
He gave me his card
          G
He said, “Call me if they die”
  C
I shook his hand and said goodbye
    C
Ran out to the street
       G
When a bowling ball came down the road
    G
And knocked me off my feet
  D
A pay phone was ringing
   D
It just about blew my mind
       G
When I picked it up and said hello
     G                             | G | % | % | % |
This foot came through the line


VERSE 9
      G
Well, by this time I was fed up
   G
At tryin’ to make a stab
   G
At bringin’ back any help
       G
For my friends and Captain Arab
    C
I decided to flip a coin
     C
Like either heads or tails
      G
Would let me know if I should go
        G
Back to ship or back to jail
   D
So I hocked my sailor suit
      D
And I got a coin to flip
   G
It came up tails, it rhymed with sails
             G                 | G | % | % | % |
So I made it back to the ship


VERSE 10
      G
Well, I got back and took
            G
The parkin’ ticket off the mast
      G
I was ripping it to shreds
          G
When this coastguard boat went past
     C
They asked me my name
    C
And I said, “Captain Kidd”
     G
They believed me but
     G
They wanted to know
      G
What exactly that I did
  D                     D
I said for the Pope of Eruke I was employed
     G
They let me go right away
          G
They were very paranoid

VERSE 11
          G
Well, the last I heard of Arab
       G
He was stuck on a whale
        G
That was married to the deputy
G
Sheriff of the jail
        C
But the funniest thing was
     C
When I was leavin’ the bay
  G
I saw three ships a-sailin’
          G
They were all heading my way
  D
I asked the captain what his name was
                D
And how come he didn’t drive a truck
            G
He said his name was Columbus
G
I just said, “Good luck”
