So today for Song Saturday the Unicorn song.

I looked around this morning and no Unicorns did I see. I guess the sad reality of the song is true.

A long time ago when the earth was green,and there was more kinds of animals than you’ve ever seen,They’d run around free while the earth was being born,But the loveliest of them all was the Unicorn.

ChorusThere were 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 all was the Unicorn.

Now God seen some sinning 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…

Chorus 2Green 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 Unicorn.”

Old Noah was there to answer the call,He finished up making 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 got your…”

Chorus 3Green alligators and long necked geese,Some humpy-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 driving rain,Them Unicorns were hiding, playing silly games.Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring,Oh them silly Unicorns.

Chorus 4There were green alligators and long necked geese,Some humpy-back camels and some chimpanzees,Noah cried “Close the door, cause the rain is pouring,And we just can’t wait for no Unicorn.”

The ark started movin, 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’ll never seen a Unicorn… to this very day.

Chorus 5You’ll see green alligators and long necked geese,Some humpy-back camels and some chimpanzees,Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born,You’re never gonna see no Unicorn.
