The Lyrics

Cubit, measurement old,
Elbow to thumb, I'm told
An ancient length they used
You see, you see
Yardsticks they didn't need
Sorry, no amputees
Your arm, it had to be complete

When Noah had to build an ark he did not distress
Three hundred cubits long and fifty wide, not a guess
Thirty cubits high, it had a window to boot
And it was flood-proof

So, cubit, measurement old,
Elbow to thumb, I'm told
An ancient length they used
You see, you see
Yardsticks they didn't need
Sorry, no amputees
Your arm, it had to be complete

Now Romans, they used cubits to build their temples grand
Pyramids in Egypt, measured and built by hand
Cubit rulers don't exist today, I can tell
Home Depot won't sell...

...those cubits, measurement old,
Elbow to thumb, I'm told
An ancient length they used
You see, you see
Yardsticks they didn't need
Sorry, no amputees
Your arm, it had to be complete


Now, cubit, measure me please
Measure' you, hand-breadths, too
Cubit, help me

The "no amputees" line cracked me up.
