The Unicorn

A long time ago when the Earth was green,
There was more kinds of animals then you've ever seen.
And they'd run around free while the world was being born.
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn!

There was green alligators and long necked geese,
Hump back camels and chimpanzees.
Cats and rats and elephants but sure a you're born,
The loveliest of all was the Unicorn!

But the Lord seen some sinnin' and it caused him pain.
He says, "Stand back, I'm gonna make it rain.
So hey, Brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do.
Go and build me a floating zoo."

"You'll take two alligators and a couple of geese,
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees.
Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born,
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns!"

Well, Noah looked out through the drivin' rain,
But the unicorns was hidin'-playin' silly games.
They were kickin' and a-splashin' while the rain was pourin',
Oh them foolish unicorns.

"So you take two alligators and a couple of geese,
Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees.
Two cats, two rats, two elephantsbut as sure as you're born,
Noah, don't you forget my unicorns."

And the the ark started movin' and it drifted with the tide,
And the unicorns looked up from the rock and cried.
And the water cameup and sort of floated them away,
That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this day.

You'll see a lot of alligators and a whole mess of geese,
You'll see hump back camels andchimpanzees.
You'll see cats and rats and elephants butas sure as you're born,
You're never gonna see no unicorn.
