The Alley Alley O....

"The big ship sails through the Alley Alley O,
Alley Alley O, Alley Alley O,
The big ship sails through the Alley Alley O,
On the last day of September.

The Captain said, 'It will never, never do,
It will never, never do,
It will never, never do', etc

The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea,
The bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea, etc.

We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea,
The deep blue sea, the deep blue sea, etc.


It is argued that the Alley is either the Mersey, The Manchester Ship canal or even the Suez canal.
What say ye?

I always thought it was the Manchester Ship Canal
