{c:|ntro: [C]   [G]  / [C]}

A [C]long time ago, when the [Dm]Earth was green
There was [G]more kinds of animals than [C]you've ever seen
They'd [C]run around free while the [Dm]Earth was being born
But the [C]loveliest of them all was the [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corn


There was [C]green alligators and [Dm]long-necked geese
Some [G]humpty-backed camels and some [C]chimpanzees
Some [C]cats and rats and elephants, but [Dm]sure as you're born
The [C]loveliest of all was the [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corn


Now [C]God seen some sinning and it [Dm]gave Him pain
And He [G]says, "Stand back, I'm going to [C]make it rain"
He says, [C]"Hey brother Noah, I'll [Dm]tell you what to do
[C]Build me a [Dm]floa-[G]ting [C]zoo,
and take some of those ...


[C]Green alligators and [Dm]long-necked geese
Some [G]humpty-backed camels and some [C]chimpanzees
Some [C]cats and rats and elephants, but [Dm]sure as you're born
[C]Don't you forget My [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corns


Old [C]Noah was there to [Dm]answer the call
He [G]finished up making the ark just as the [C]rain started fallin’
He [C]marched the animals [Dm]two by two
And he [C]called out as [Dm]they [G]went [C]through
Hey Lord,


I've got your [C]green alligators and [Dm]long-necked geese
Some [G]humpty-backed camels and some [C]chimpanzees
Some [C]cats and rats and elephants, but [Dm]Lord, I'm so forlorn
I [C]just can't see no [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corns "


Then [C]Noah looked out through the [Dm]driving rain
Them [G]unicorns were hiding, [C]playing silly games
[C]Kicking and splashing while the [Dm]rain was pourin’
[C]All, them silly [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corns


There was [C]green alligators and [Dm]long-necked geese
Some [G]humpty-backed camels and some [C]chimpanzees
Noah [C]cried, "Close the door ‘cause the [Dm]rain is pourin’
And [C]we just can't wait for no [Dm]↓u-[G]↓-ni-[C]corns "


The [C]ark started moving, it [Dm]drifted with the tide
The [G]unicorns looked up from the [C]rocks and they cried
And the [C]waters came down and sort of [Dm]floated them away
{c:Spoken:}
[X]That's why you never seen a unicorn to this very day


You'll see [C]green alligators and [Dm]long-necked geese
Some [G]humpty backed camels and some [C]chimpanzees
Some [C]cats and rats and elephants, but [Dm]sure as you're born
You're [C]never gonna see no [Dm]↓u_[G]↓-ni_[C]co__rns
