Man Gave Names to All the Animals

Chorus: Em Man gave names to all the animals, B Em In the beginning, in the beginning. Man gave names to all the animals, B Em In the beginning, long time ago. B He saw an animal that liked to growl. Em Big furry paws and he liked to howl. A Great big furry back and furry hair. B Em "Ah, think I'll call it a bear." He saw an animal up on a hill. Chewing up so much grass until she was filled. He saw milk coming out, but he didn't know how. "Ah, think I'll call it a cow." Chorus He saw an animal that liked to snort. Horns on his head and they weren't too short. Looked like there was nothing that he couldn't pull. "Ah, think I'll call it a bull." He saw an animal leaving a muddy trail. Real dirty face and a dirty tail. He wasn't too small and he wasn't too big. "Ah, think I'll call it a pig." Next animal that he did meet, Had wool on its back and hooves on his feet. Eating grass on a mountainside so steep. "Ah, think I'll call it a sheep." Chorus He saw an animal as smooth as glass, Slithering his way through the grass. Saw him disappear by a tree near a lake . . .
