Noah's Ark (One Wide River)

Lyrics

Old Noah built himself an ark,
There's one wide river to cross!
He built it out of hickory bark,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

The animals went in one by one,
There's one wide river to cross!
The elephant, who weighed a ton,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

The animals went in two by two,
There's one wide river to cross!
The donkey and the kangaroo,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

The animals went in three by three,
There's one wide river to cross!
The hippo and a mouse and flea,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

The animals went in four by four,
There's one wide river to cross!
You should have heard the lions roar,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

The animals went in five by five,
There's one wide river to cross!
The bumblebee, he brought his hive,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

When Noah found he had no sail,
There's one wide river to cross!
He made one from his old coat tail,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

And as they talked of this and that,
There's one wide river to cross!
The ark it bumped on Arrarat,
There's one wide river to cross!
There's one wide river,
And that wide river is Jordan,
There's one wide river,
There's one wide river to cross.

This is another version that we found

The animals went in one by one
There’s one more river to cross
The elephant chewing a caraway bun
There’s one more river to cross

Chorus
One more river, and that’s the river of Jordan
One more river, and that’s the river to cross

The animals went in two by two
There’s one more river to cross
There’s the crocodile and the kangaroo
There’s one more river to cross

Chorus
One more river, and that’s the river of Jordan
One more river, and that’s the river to cross

The animals went in three by three
There’s one more river to cross
There’s the tall giraffe and the tiny flea
There’s one more river to cross

Chorus
One more river, and that’s the river of Jordan
One more river, and that’s the river to cross

The animals went in four by four
There’s one more river to cross
The big hippopotamus stuck in the door
There’s one more river to cross

Chorus
One more river, and that’s the river of Jordan
One more river, and that’s the river to cross

The animals went in five by five
There’s one more river to cross
The bees mistook the bear for a hive
There’s one more river to cross

Chorus
One more river, and that’s the river of Jordan
One more river, and that’s the river to cross
