Unicorn Song

  • (Shel Silverstein)

    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 when the earth was being born
    But the loveliest of them all was the unicorn
    There was

    Green alligators and long-necked geese
    Some humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
    Some cats and rats and elephants
    But sure as you're born
    The loveliest of them all was the unicorn

    Now God seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain
    And he says, Stand back, I'm going to make it rain
    He says, Hey 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 humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
    Some cats and rats and elephants
    But sure as you're born
    Don't you forget my unicorns

    Old Noah was there to answer the call
    He finished up makin' the Ark just as the rain started fallin'
    He marched in the animals two by two
    And he called out as they went through
    Hey Lord - I've got your

    Green alligators and long-necked geese
    Some humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
    Some cats and rats and elephants
    But Lord I'm so forlorn
    I just can't see no unicorn

    Then Noah looked out through the drivin' rain
    Them unicorns were hiding, playing silly games
    Kickin' and splashin' while the rain was fallin'
    Oh them silly unicorns
    There was

    Green alligators and long-necked geese
    Some humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
    Noah cried, Close the door
    'Cause the rain is fallin'
    And we just can't wait for no unicorn

    The Ark started moving, it drifted with the tide
    Them unicorns looked up from their rocks and the cried
    And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
    And that's why you've never seen a unicorn to this very day
    You'll see

    Green alligators and long-necked geese
    Some humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
    Some cats and rats and elephants
    But sure as you're born
    You're never going to see no unicorn

    (as sung by The Irish Rovers)
