The Lyrics

When they found themselves watching for rain
After sinking a lot of their money in their task
To Noah they asked
“Where are you taking us now?”

He turned around in the hull of the ship
Knowing full well that he had to bite his lip
And waved off their question
‘Cause he’d just be guessing but oh

Just like he talked - soon it poured
And flooded their emotions, yeah
With no turning back
Back to who knew?

I ‘spose, thoughts were kind of muddled
As rain quickly puddled
When they heard the lightning storm
The horror, their dreams were all scuttled
They cried in a huddle
Bet they went bananas in the ark

They shared the bills with the chickens and ducks
No time for shuffleboard
After pitching their cow’s pucks
The donkeys were braying
While Noah was praying but oh

While he would talk - to the Lord
He’d ignore the commotion, yeah
And offer up rites
Right through, cow moos

I ‘spose, locked up in the ship hull
The trip got a bit dull
Talk about them getting bored
OOh Lord, speaking to the sea gulls
The trip had some big lulls
Bet they went bananas in the ark

The heavens were pouring
And lions were roaring but whoa!

Sometimes they’d slip - On the floors
From the waves in the ocean
So crazy! Just tossing ‘em Smack!
Smack through horse pooh

I ‘spose, that spitting from the llamas
Would make for some drama
If they didn’t get their oats
So gross, causing mental trauma
I’d cry out for momma
ooo I’d cry cry cry

I ‘spose, that after all the frivol
They tried not to snivel
They were getting ‘overbored’
Oh Lord!, worn out from the drivel
They tried to be civil
Bet they went bananas in the ark
