Played in the Key of F (the original key as played by the Irish Rovers)

Intro: F C F

  F                      C
A long time ago when the Earth was green,
                                     F 
There was more kinds of animals than you'd ever seen.
                                Bb 
They'd run around free when the Earth was being born,
        F                             C  F 
But the loveliest of them all was the unicorn.
 
                               C
There was green alligators and long-necked geese,
                                   F 
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
                                      Bb 
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born,
    F                        C  F 
The loveliest of all was the unicorn.


Instrumental: F C F
 
                                 C
Now God seen some sinning and it gave Him a pain.
                                               F 
And He says, "Stand back, I'm going to make it rain!"
                                  Bb 
He says, "Hey, Brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do,
F          C        F 
Build me a floating zoo," 

"and take some them.......
 
                     C
Green alligators and long-necked geese,
                                   F       
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
                                      Bb 
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born.
F                   C  F 
Don't you forget My unicorn."

                      C
Old Noah was there to answer the call,
                                          F 
He finished up making the ark just as the rain started pourin'
                          Bb 
He marched in the animals two by two,
       F             C         F 
And he called out as they went through, 

"Hey Lord,"
 
                               C
"I gotcha green alligators and long-necked geese,
                                   F 
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
                                      Bb 
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn,
  F                 C  F 
I just can't see no unicorn!"


Instrumental: F C F
 
                                 C
Then Noah looked out through the driving rain,
                           F 
Them unicorns were hiding, playing silly games.
                                Bb 
Kicking and splashing while the rain was pourin',
F              C  F 
Oh, them silly unicorns!
 
                               C
There was green alligators and long-necked geese,
                                   F 
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
                                      Bb 
Noah cried, "Close the door cause the rain's pourin'
    F                      C     F
And we just can't wait for those unicorn!"


Instrumental: F C F
 
                           C
The ark started moving, it drifted with the tides,
                                                F 
Them unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried.
                                     Bb 
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away,
 
And that's why ya never seen a unicorn to this very day.
 
           F                    C
You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese,
                                   F 
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
                                      Bb 
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born,
       F                  C  F 
You're never gonna see no unicorn!
