    ...through the alley-alley-oh on the last day of September.
    Does anyone know if this song is based on a real event?

    The only interesting thing about this song is its the last day in september that the ship went through the poxy alley.

    and the Captain wasnt so keen.

    thats the sum of it.

    Oh yea. It sank.

    The Big Ship


    The big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
    The ally-ally-oh
    The ally-ally-oh
    Oh, the big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    Ally-ally-oh, ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    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
    Ally-ally-oh, ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
    The deep blue sea, the deep blue sea
    Oh, we all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
    On the last day of September
    Ally-ally-oh, ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
    The bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea
    Oh, the big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
    On the last day of September
    Ally-ally-oh, ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    Oh, the big ship sails on the ally, ally-oh
    The ally-ally-oh
    The ally-ally-oh
    Oh, the big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
    On the last day of September
    Ally-ally-oh, ally-oh
    On the last day of September

    Is this a real song? What source and what is the original source material? Never heard of it. There is a song we used to sing in our band Southwind, called Bully in the alley but I that was just a sea shanty:
