G C/g G I was riding on the Mayflower When I thought I spied some land I yelled for Captain Arab I have yuh understand C Who came running to the deck Said, "Boys, forget the whale G Look on over yonder Cut the engine, change the sail D Haul on the bowline" We sang that melody G Like all tough sailors do When they are far away at sea G C/g G "I think I'll call it America" I said as we hit land I took a deep breath I fell down, I could not stand C Captain Arab he started Writing up some deeds G He said, "Let's set up a fort And start buying the place with beads" D Just then this cop comes down the street Crazy as a loon G He throw us all in jail For carryin' harpoons G C/g G Ah me I busted out Don't even ask me how I went to get some help I walked by a Guernsey cow C Who directed me down To the Bowery slums G Where people carried signs around Saying, "Ban the bums" D I jumped right into line Sayin', "I hope that I'm not late" G When I realized I hadn't eaten For five days straight G C/g G I went into a restaurant Lookin' for the cook I told them I was the editor Of a famous etiquette book C The waiter he was handsome He wore a powder blue cape G I ordered some suzette, I said "Could you please make that crepe" D Just then the whole kitchen exploded From boilin' fat G Food was flying everywhere And I left without my hat G C/g G Now, I didn't mean to be nosy But I went into a bank To get some bail for Arab And all the boys back in the tank C They asked me for some collateral And I pulled down my pants G They threw me in the alley When up comes this girl from France D Who invited me to her house I went, but she had a friend G Who knocked me out and robbed my boots And I was on the street again G C/g G Well, I rapped upon a house With the U.S. flag upon display I said, "Could you help me out I got some friends down the way" C The man says, "Get out of here I'll tear you limb from limb" G I said, "You know they refused Jesus, too" He said, "You're not Him D Get out of here before I break your bones I ain't your pop" G I decided to have him arrested And I went looking for a cop G C/g G I ran right outside And I hopped inside a cab I went out the other door This Englishman said, "Fab" C As he saw me leap a hot dog stand And a chariot that stood G Parked across from a building Advertising brotherhood D I ran right through the front door Like a hobo sailor does G But it was just a funeral parlor And the man asked me who I was G C/g G I repeated that my friends Were all in jail, with a sigh He gave me his card He said, "Call me if they die" C I shook his hand and said goodbye Ran out to the street G When a bowling ball came down the road And knocked me off my feet D A pay phone was ringing It just about blew my mind G When I picked it up and said hello This foot came through the line G C/g G Well,by this time I was fed up At tryin' to make a stab At bringin' back any help For my friends and Captain Arab C I decided to nip a coin Like either heads or tails G Would let me know if I should go Back to ship or back to jail D So I hocked my sailor suit And I got a coin to flip G It came up tails it rhymed with sails So I made it back to the ship G C/g G Well, I got back and took The parkin' ticket off the mast I was ripping it to shreds When this coastguard boat went past C They asked me my name And I said, "Captain Kidd" G They believed me but They wanted to know What exactly that I did D I said for the Pope of Eruke I was employed G They let me go right away They were very paranoid G C/g G Well, the last I heard of Arab He was stuck on a whale That was married to the deputy Sheriff of the jail C But the funniest thing was When I was leavin' the bay G I saw three ships a-sailin' They were all heading my way D I asked the captain what his name was And how come he didn't drive a truck G He said his name was Columbus I just said, "Good luck."
