Noah Built an Ark, song

Noah Built an Ark by Tedi Tuttle Wixom 3/23/1991, transcribed 3/28/12
To be sung to Mozart’s Turkish March

Noah built an ark
By the Lord’s command
And he blessed the animals
To gather in the land
And they marched up to the mighty ark
And bowed to Noah’s hand.
There were horses, cattle, and some goats.
Eagles, egrets, flamingos, hawks, and doves
Elephants, rhinos, hippos, buffaloes
Tigers, jaguars, cougars, no one shove.
Honey bees in swarms; snakes in Noah’s arms
Ham, Shem, Japheth showed their guests
The rooms where they would park
And the animals came marching, crawling,
Flying into the great big ark.
