The Unicorn

A long time ago, when the Earth was green
There was more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
They'd run around free while the Earth was being born
And the loveliest of all was the unicorn.

There was green aligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as your born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn.

The Lord seen some sinning and it gave Him pain
And He says, "Stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
He says, "Hey Noah, I'll tell you what to do
Build me a floating zoo
And take some of those

Green aligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as your born
Don't you forget MY unicorns.

Old Noah was there to answer the call
He finished up making the ark
Just as the rain started to fall
He marched in the animals two by two
And he called out as they went through
"Hey, Lord

I've got green aligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
I just can't find no unicorns"

And Noah looked out through the driving rain
Them unicorns were hiding, playing silly games
Kicking and splashing while the rain was falling
Oh, them silly unicorns.

There was green aligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Noah cried (say this part)"Close the door, because the rain is falling
And we just can't wait for no unicorns."

The ark started moving, it drifted with the tide
The unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
(say this part)And that's why you never see unicorns to this very day

You'll see green aligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as your born
You're never gonna see no unicorns.
