The Unicorn Song         Irish Rovers          Shel Silverstein

      C                      Dm
   A long time ago when the earth was green
              G                          C
   There was more kinds of animals than you'd ever seen
          C                         Dm
   They'd run around free while the world was being born
            C                            Dm G   C
   But the loveliest of them all was the u--ni--corn

             C                       Dm
   There was green alligators   and long necked geese
        G                            C
   Some humpy back camels  and some chimpanzees
   C                               Dm
   Cats and rats and elephants but sure as you're born
       C                        Dm G   C
   The loveliest of all was the u--ni--corn

   But the Lord seen some sinnin' and it caused him pain
   He said "Stand back - I'm gonna make it rain
   So hey brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do,
   Build me a floating zoo."

   And you take two alligators  and a couple of geese
   Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees
   Two cats, two rats, two elephants but sure as you're born
   Noah, don't you forget my u--ni--corn.

   Now Noah was there and he answered the callin'
   And he finished up the ark as the rain started fallin'
   And he marched in the animals two by two
   And he sung out as they went through
  "Hey Lord, I got you two alligators  and a couple of geese
   Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees
   Two cats, two rats, two elephants but sure as you're born
   Lord, I just don't see your u--ni--corns."

   Well, Noah looked out through the driving rain,
   But the unicorns were hiding - playing silly games,
   They were kickin' and a-spashin' while the rain was pourin'
   Oh them foolish unicorns.
[Repeat second chorus]

   And then the ark started moving and it drifted with the tide,
   And the unicorns looked up from the rock and cried,
   And the water came up and sort of floated them away,
   That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this day.
   "You'll see a lot of alligators  and a whole mess of geese
   You'll see hump back camels and chimpanzees
   You'll see cats and rats and elephants but sure as you're born
   You're never gonna see no u--ni--corns."
