The Lyrics

soggy days...on the ark
i think we've been afloat since july
soggy days...on the ark
i think that we may never be dry
critters pacing...critters cramping
oh man, what a bad dream
stinging aroma's strong
is this party too foolhearty ?
can we make it ?....hope we can
cause we've been waiting such a long time
been forty days

soggy days...on the ark
you'd think a patch of land would come by
soggy days...on the ark
i think the water may be too high
critters squawking...no one's smiling
has god took it too far ?
praying for us all
will he help and save the world ?
he can do it..yes, he can
but we've been waiting such a long time
forty days

slow ocean riders...miss the sunshine, i must say
the old man...has plans...to celebrate one day
paired up critters, so they're not lost
on seas we're tossed...oh....no no

sunny days...on the ark
i think the earth is starting to dry
sunny days...on the ark
i think that we are gonna survive
critters stretching...critters rubbing
a real celebration
god has saved us all
and we want out...really want out
noah's made it...he's the man
and we were waiting such a long time
for today

Alvin - Brilliant! You really nailed this one down. I even saw a rainbow at the end of the parody as I was reading it, it was that good.

Chicago and the story of Noah may seem like an unlikely pair, but you made it work! Three fives!

I'll cast my vote based on the number of rabbits that left the ark, in other words: 555.
John Barry - October 25, 2004 - Report this comment
555 pair of animals on that boat.

...thou hast offered a parody upon the altar of the L-rd. And the parody had a pleasant fragrance, and was pleasing unto the L-rd, blessed be He. And the L-rd accepted the parody, and there was much rejoicing, three 5's, and much cattle."

Great job Alvin! And you just saved me a lot of work - I was laying in bed last night thinking: "Squalid Days on the Ark" - had a great line about amphibians worked in tho'... ;-)

What can I say? ....A great Pair-ody!

I think that "has God took" must have been a grammatical hiccup, because the rest of the parody was excellent.

Wish I could give you points = number of sheep on the ark (7), but 5 will have to do :-)

I may not be a Christian or even a Bible believer, but this song was cleverly written and well-paced: here are three more fives because you deserve it!

Lucky for civilisation, Titanic's iceberg was only a cube when the ark was sailing - great idea Alvin - 555
Kristof Robertson - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
A Titanic effort, Al...555 plus an extra brownie point for the word "foolhearty"

Great job, Alvin...the Bible is a great source of inspiration for all areas of life...including, of course, song parodies!

Looks like I'm the last one on the ark...Noah couldn't close the gate fast enough to keep me from voting 555 on this great parody
Michael Pacholek - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Noah doubt about it, they're walking out five by five by five!

Laughing: "Ark, ark, ark!" Two Fives, and they bred a third.
