Alexandria, Egypt

I had a lekker time in Egypt
even though I didn’t visit a crypt

I drank, smoked, had fun with friends
later back on board someone stole my tens

still had fun on the last night there
and the cab ride was quite a scare

that was one of the ports I have seen
as a young sailor at age nineteen
