  •  But if you're looking for the unicorns, (2+ / 0-)

    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
    And the loveliest of 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 loveliest 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, "Hey Noah, I'll tell you what to do
    Build me a floating zoo,
    and take some of those...

       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
       Don't you forget My unicorns

    Old Noah was there to answer the call
    He finished up making the ark just as the rain started to fall
    He marched the animals two by two
    And he called out as they came through
    Hey Lord,

       I've got green alligators and long-necked geese
       Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
       Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
       I just can't find 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 humpty 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
    The unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried
    And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
    That's why you never see unicorns to this very day

       You'll see 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
       You're never gonna see no unicorns

    [New Lyrics]
    Now you might think this is the ending to the song,
    But I'll have to tell you friends that in fact you're wrong
    You see, Unicorns are magical, so when the rain started pouring,
    They grew themselves some wings and they took to soaring.

       You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
       Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
       But if you're looking for the unicorns, don't be forlorn,
       The second star to the right and straight on until morning.
