Bert Hansell Lyr Req: One More River and That Wide River is... (12) Lyr Add: ONE MORE RIVER 22 May 97


From the YHA Songbook, 1954.

Old Noah once did build an ark,
One more river to cross,
And patched it up with hickory bark,
One more river to cross

Chorus...
One more river, one more river to Jordan
One more river, one more river to cross.

The animals went in one by one
The elephant chewing a carraway bun

....two by two
The Rinoceros and the kangaroo

...three by three
The bear, the bug and the bumble bee

...four
The fat hippopotamus stuck in the door

...five
The bumble bee was all alive

...six
The donkey laughed at the monkey's tricks

...seven
Said the flea to the elephant "Who're you shovin'?"

..eight
They came with a rush for it was so late

...nine
And Noah began to pull the line

...ten
But the skipper blew the whistle then

And now the voyage did begin
As Noah pulled the gangway in

Old Noah at the helm he sat
Till he bumped her on Mount Ararat

The old ark was stranded high and dry
The passengers shouted out "Good-bye"
