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
But the lovliest of them all was the Unicorn

There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants but sure as you're born
The lovliest 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, "Brother Noah I'll tell you what to do
Build me a floating zoo, and
Take some of them..."

Green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants but sure as you're born
Don't you forget my Unicorn

Old Noah was there to answer the call
He finished makin' the Ark just as the rain started to fall
He marched the animals two by two
And he called out as they went through,
"Hey Lord,

Iíve got Green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants but Lord I'm so forlorn
I just can't see 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 alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Noah cried "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
Them Unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
And that's why you've never see unicorn to this very day

You'll see some green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants but as sure as you're born
You're never gonna see no Unicorns
