The Lyrics

For a parody, no sacrifice is too small, no sacrilege too great . :-)
"Singin’ the Blues"

Well, I never thought I’d be boatin’ with gnus,
but whoever thought Jehovah would lose
His cool and … wash Creation away?

Now I’m bobbin’ with braces of beasts because
the Lord didn’t like folks floutin’ his laws
but He sent me … on a 40-day cruise.

Jejune, bizarre, His tantrum ain’t
a model of parental restraint.
To kill the kids that make you mad
His o-o-o-own “Rule 6” forbad. (“Murder is bad!”)

I Noah’m an antidiluvian coot,
but pissin’ on what’s pissed you off isn't cute.
It’s childish … the idea’s all wet.

Stan - This certainly is a gnu idea. A Noah-count history lesson on the goats in the boat. 555 leagues under the sea.

Thanks, Guy & Alvin ... gotta confess that I wondered when submitting this critter, "Wildebeest get me in Dutch with the religious folks here?" :-)
