The Lyrics

Ferlin HuskyI've got a palm tree and a microwave, but no hot date. What's wrong with me?
With the beak of a jet-black crow
God fed Elijah's soul (1)
A flight to behold (flight to behold)
With the caw of a crow (caw of a crow)

Mount Carmel erupted, false prophets trounced
A showdown unique(2) (showdown unique)
The devil denounced (devil denounced)
With everything molted(3), the prophet just bolted
He fled Jezebel(4) (fled Jezebel)
Like a bat out of hell (bat out of hell)

Like the wings of a jet-black bat
He left in no-time-flat
A time to be scat
To be seen with the bats(5) (seen with the bats)

When Noah grew seasick in the Ark's many planks
He got real bored (he got real bored)
His cabin was dank (cabin was dank)
Boredom, he had much and so sent out a black bird
It flew to and fro (6)
With the caw of a crow

On the wings of a jet-black crow
He searched for a home-sweet-home
Where gardens can grow (gardens can grow)
With a friendly scarecrow (friendly scarecrow)

With a cob for a nose (cob for a nose)
And a sack for his clothes (sack for his clothes)
He'll be the pals to the crows (pals to the crows)

(1) I Kings 17:6.
(2) I Kings chapter 18.
(3) I believe this is old English for molten. I Kings 18:38
(4) I Kings 19:1-3.
(5) Elijah hid out in a cave after fleeing from Jezebel's fury. I Kings 19:9
(6) Noah sent out a raven before he sent out a dove. Genesis 8:7

Clever, but it was a raven. However, raven doesn't fit the pacing as well.

Sings, and tells a timely tale, very well
