LYRIC

Noah

Now, didn’t old Noah build the Ark
Build it out of a hickory bark
He built it long, both wide and tall
Plenty of room for the large and small

He found him an ax and a hammer, too
Began to cut and he began to hew
And every time that hammer ring
Old Noah shout and Noah sing

Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark
Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark

Now in come the animals two by two
Big hippopotamus, a little kangaroo
In come the animals three by three
Two big cats and a bumblebee

In come the animals four by four
Two through the window and two through the door
In come the animals five by five
Four little sparrows with their red breasts white

Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark
Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark

In come the animals six by six
The elephant laughin’ at the monkey’s tricks
In come the animals seven by seven
Four from home and the rest from heaven

In come the animals eight by eight
Some were on time and the others were late
Now in come the animals nine by nine
Some was a-shoutin’ and some was a-cryin’

Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark
Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark

In come the animals ten by ten
Five black roosters ‘n’ five black hens
Now Noah says, “Go shut that door
The rain’s started droppin’ and we can’t take more”

Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark
Who built the Ark
Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark
Brother Noah built the Ark
