The Lyrics

Somewhat similar to the better by Alvin Rhodes.
Forty days on the ark
And things are finally startin' to dry.
Forty days on the ark;
They're now on a promontory high.

This dry land is Ararat 'n'
Up here there are no bream.
No fishin' for this throng.
(Nessuno pesca questa calca)
They can dig it back on land,
Now at the gate is such a long line
To get away.

Forty days on the ark;
It's no fish story--would this Jew lie?
Forty days on the ark
Now Noah feels just like a new guy.
Creatures massing, creatures filing
Two by two to get far
From this boat too small.
Every pair a boy and girl
To procreate (sire and dam).
They had been waiting such a long time.

Back four days:

Rolled-ocean riders, faces are all colored gray.
The Noah man hopes he can tell his story some day.
But just then his cookies were tossed,
Sustenance lost.

Bunny plays on the ark,
But Noah wants something to fry.
Bunny slain on the ark;
Noah dines on cottontail pie.
But the female he's not touching
She'd had impregnation--
Bunnies had a ball.
Many pop out, many pop out--
A huge litter of lapins [rabbits]
And they all do not waste any time
With foreplay.

Somewhat similar to the better by Alvin Rhodes.

If JAB hadn't cited alvin's, I woulda thought this 5-worthy, so, with all due respect, Ag, can't bring myself to penalize him for honesty and courtesy. Still funny ("Ark, ark ark!") and Five-y to TT.
