There's One Wide River To Cross


Old Noah he build himself an Ark
There's one wide river to cross
He thatched it up with hickory bark
There's one wide river to cross
There's one wide river, and that's the river of Jordan
There's one wide river, one wide river to cross
He built long, and wide and tall
There's one wide river to cross
Plenty of room for the large and small
There's one wide river to cross
He anchored the ark to a great big rock
There's one wide river to cross
And then he began to load his stock
There's one wide river to cross
The animals came in one by one
There's one wide river to cross
The elephant munching a caraway bun
There's one wide river to cross

The animals came in two by two
There's one wide river to cross
The monkey and the kangaroo
There's one wide river to cross

The animals came in three by three
There's one wide river to cross
The lion and the chimpanzee
There's one wide river to cross
The animals came in four by four
There's one wide river to cross
Old Noah got mad and hollered for more
There's one wide river to cross
The animals came in five by five
There's one wide river to cross
With wardrobe trunks they did arrive
There's one wide river to cross
The animals came in six by six
There's one wide river to cross
The leopard laughed at the monkey's tricks
There's one wide river to cross
The animals came in seven by seven
There's one wide river to cross
Now you may think there's at least eleven
BUT THERE AIN'T!
