Alexander Beetle  Melanie

[D]i [G]had a little beetle, so that [C]beetle was his [G]name
and i [C]called him Alex[G]ander and he [D]answered just the same
[G]and [D]i [G]put him in a matchbox and i [C]kept him all the [G]day
but [C]nanny let my [G]beetle out and [D]beetle ran a[G]way
[D]she [G]said she didn't mean it and i [C]never said she [G]did
she [C]said she wanted [G]matches and she [D]just took off the lid
she [G]said i mustn't worry and i [C]really mustn't [G]mind
that there's [C]lots and lots of [G]beetles thats she's [D]certain we could find
said if we [G]looked in all the places that a [C]beetle might be [G]near
and we m[C]ade the kind of [G]noises that a [D]beetle likes to hear
[G]then [D]i [G]heard a kind of something and i [C]gave a sort of [G]shout
it was a beetle house and Alexander [D]beetle coming [G]out
it was Alexander beetle i'm as [C]certain as can [G]be
and he [C]had that kind of [G]look as though he [D]thought it might be me
[G]and [D]he [G]had that kind of look as though he [C]thought he ought to [G]say
"i'm [C]really very [G]sorry that i [D]tried to run away"
[G]an[D]d [G]nanny's very sorry too cause [C]you know what she [G]did
and she's [C]writing Ale[G]xander very [D]blackly on the [G]lid
[D]so [G]nan and me are friends because it's [C]difficult to [G]catch
an ex[C]cited Alex[G]ander you've mis[D]taken for a [G]match[D] [G] [C] [G]
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.
Comments, corrections and rating appreciated. Enjoy!
