D G                            C              G
i had a little beetle, so that beetle was his name
      C              G            D                      
and i called him Alexander and he answered just the same
G   D G                           C                G
and i put him in a matchbox and i kept him all the day
    C            G              D           G
but nanny let my beetle out and beetle ran away

D   G                             C              G
she said she didn't mean it and i never said she did
    C               G               D
she said she wanted matches and she just took off the lid
    G                          C              G
she said i mustn't worry and i really mustn't mind
             C                G                   D
that there's lots and lots of beetles thats she's certain we could find
           G                               C               G
said if we looked in all the places that a beetle might be near
        C               G             D
and we made the kind of noises that a beetle likes to hear

G    D G                               C              G
then i heard a kind of something and i gave a sort of shout
                                    D             G
it was a beetle house and Alexander beetle coming out
                               C              G
it was Alexander beetle i'm as certain as can be
       C                G                 D
and he had that kind of look as though he thought it might be me

G   D  G                                  C                   G
and he had that kind of look as though he thought he ought to say
     C           G            D
"i'm really very sorry that i tried to run away"
G D G                            C                 G
and nanny's very sorry too cause you know what she did
          C          G           D              G
and she's writing Alexander very blackly on the lid
D  G                                   C            G
so nan and me are friends because it's difficult to catch
     C         G               D           G     D  G  C  G
an excited Alexander you've mistaken for a match

One of the greatest singer/song-writers and the cutest song ever,

play this song to your little ones, they'll love it. 

This is a rhythym version only. But if you can finger-pick like her 

you should be able to make the most of this.
