Margaret V Lyr Req: The story of Adam and Eve (15) Lyr Add: ADAM AND EVE (Robin Williamson) 24 Apr 01

I'm perhaps the Incredible String Band's biggest fan, but I've always thought this song was disastrously bad... anyway, here you go:


once before the world began
God was sitting in the sky
he began to get some mud together
o I wonder why

first he made a man
then he made a woman
mr. Adam and miss Eve
they began to be quite good friends
as I can well believe

o remember that morning
remember that sign
take a warning
when you see the sign

Eve was sitting in the garden
when in came a serpent
miss Eve take this apple
give it to your man
give it to your man
i don't want it
o Adam give it a try
o give it a try

friends if you're travelling
never go taking an apple from a snake
if you do i'll tell you true
you make a big mistake

Written by Robin Williamson
Performed by the Incredible String Band on their album
"Liquid Acrobat as Regards the Air" (1972)
