The Unicorn Song - The Irish Rovers

The Unicorn Song
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.
