“The big ship sails on the alley, alley-oh” is a favourite children’s song, although it is also known as a folk song.

The song’s origins are unknown and suggestions about the geographic location of the ship (Manchester or even Panama) are unverified.


“The big ship sails on the alley, alley, oh” lyrics

1. The big ship sails on the alley, alley, oh,
The alley, alley, oh,
The alley, alley, oh.
The big ship sails on the alley, alley, oh,
On the last day of September.

2. The captain said, ‘It will never, never do,
Never, never do,
Never, never do.’
The captain said, ‘It will never, never do,’
On the last day of September.

3. The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea,
The bottom of the sea,
The bottom of the sea.
The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea,
On the last day of September.
