[Verse]
                 G
By the rivers of babylon
             G
Where he sat down
             D
And there he wept
                   G
When he remembered Zion

[Chorus]
Oh from the wicked
G
Carry us away captivity
  C
Required from us a song
G
How can we sing King Alfa's song
      D        G
In a strange land
           G            D
So let the words of our mouth
              G           D
And the meditation of our heart
      G              D       (Mute)
Be acceptable in thy sight
       G
Override

The lyrics are pretty wrong here.. This song is a condensed reading of Psalm 137 (the Bible), about the Babylonian exile and slavery

By the rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down
and there we wept,
When we remembered Zion.
Upon the willows
they carried us away (and in) captivity required of us a song;
How can we sing the LORD’S song
In a strange land?
