I was[G] riding[C/g] on the [G]Mayflower
When I thought I spied some land
I yelled for Captain Arab
I have yuh understand
Who came[C] 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
Like[G] all tough sailors do
When they are far away at sea

"I [G]think I'll[C/g] call it A[G]merica"
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
He said, "[G]Let's set up a fort
And start buying the place with beads"
Just[D] then this cop comes down the street
Crazy as a loon
He [G]throw us all in jail
For carryin' harpoons

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

I[G] went in[C/g]to a [G]restaurant
Lookin' for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The[C] waiter he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I[G] ordered some suzette, I said
"Could you please make that crepe"
Just[D] then the whole kitchen exploded
[G]Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat

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

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

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

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

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

Well,[G] I got[C/g] back and[G] 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"
They be[G]lieved me but
They wanted to know
What exactly that I did
I [D]said for the Pope of Eruke
I was employed
They[G] let me go right away
They were very paranoid

Well, the[G] last I[C/g] heard of A[G]rab
He was stuck on a whale
That was married to the deputy
Sheriff of the jail
But the[C] funniest thing was
When I was leavin' the bay
I [G]saw three ships a-sailin'
They were all heading my way
I[D] asked the captain what his name was
And how come he didn't drive a truck
He[G] said his name was Columbus
I just said, "Good luck."
