Brother Noah

Brother Noah, Brother Noah,
May I come into the Ark of the Lord?
For it's growing very dark and it's raining very hard
Halleloo, halleloo, hal-le-loo-oo-oo-oo-ia.
2. No, you can't sir, no, you can't, sir,
You can't come into the ark of the Lord
Though it's growing very dark and it's raining very hard.
Halleloo, halleloo, hal-le-loo-oo-oo-oo-ia.
3. Very well, sir, very well, sir,
You can go to the dickens with your darned old scow,
'Cause it ain't goin'to rain very hard no how.
Halleloo, halleloo, halleloo-oo-oo-oo-ia
4. That's a lie, sir, that's a lie, sir,
You can darn soon tell that it ain't no sell
'Cause it's sprinklin' now, and it's gonna rain like hell.
Halleloo, halleloo, halleloo-oo-oo-oo-ia
