               C
When he was a boy
              G
he wanted to play
Am           F
down by the sea

            C
At age thirteen
                  G
everyday after school
Am                F                C
he would always sail around the lake

C
All the people would stand and stare
        G
as he sailed around with precision and care
           Am
With his bi-corner hat and the way he would stand
      F
he looked just like a Navy man
Am                                   F
All the townsfolk would gather and say, and sing away

C                 G
Captain Albert Alexander
            Am                F
He'll be a brave seafarer someday
            C              G
But that Captain Albert Alexander
Am                    F
He'll go down in the waves

              C
By age twenty four
                G
he had left the shore
         Am              F
and was sailing for the Queen

                 C
On a dark starry night
                     G
Albert awoke to the sound
       Am                           F
of his Captain screaming as he was drowned

    C
The Navy crew was taking a lick
  G
pirates had invaded the ship
      Am
But Albert with one aimed harpoon
   F
ignited their rum with a spark and soon
 Am                       F
flames drove the pirates away

the Navy sang

C                 G
Captain Albert Alexander
Am                           F
Saved his crew from pirate slaughter
          C                G
But that Captain Albert Alexander
          Am           F
He'll go down in the water

             C *
Now everyone dance
G *     Am/F
Dance. Dance.

                       C
Twenty some odd years later
                     G
On his ship The Sea Slater
   Am                  F
He sailed into a mass of blubber

                 C
Gazing up to the sky
                G
stood a large walrus
            Am              F                 C
that was a hundred stories high, it meant no harm

C
The walrus was in a great deal of pain
    G
It suffered from a tusk with tooth decay
Am                                  F
Albert threw his anchor 'round it's tusk
                                            Am
with a little bit of pulling it was out by dusk
                              F
The walrus thanked Albert and sang, as he sailed away

C                 G
Captain Albert Alexander
Am                       F
Friend to sea urchin and me
         C                 G
But that Captain Albert Alexander
         Am          F
He'll go down in the sea

     G                      Am
At a ripe old age lightning struck from the sky
    G                        Am
and split Albert's vessel in two
    G                Am
One hundred men fled for their lives
    G                     Am
on rafts across the ocean blue

Am                   F
Albert stood at the stern of his ship
  Am                F
A giant octopus had him in it's grip
   Am                  F
A vortex of spiraling death below ripped
     Am *                    F *
and sharks and electric eels all made the trip
        Am
to see Albert
C                         F
sink to the bottom of the sea

Am                  F
Just before he went down
   Am                F
he called out to his crew
      Am             F
It's obvious that my time has come
     Am               F
I'll let this ending ensue
     Am                       F
I've led an exciting nautical life it would seem
            Am                   F
and there's no better end than a death by the sea

His crew sang

C                 G
Captain Albert Alexander
        Am          F
He went down in the sea
         C                 G
But that Captain Albert Alexander
          Am       F
He'll go down in history

     C                 G
That Captain Albert Alexander
        Am   F      C
He went down in the sea
