Thou Shalt Not Go Into the Birds and Bee-zies, Bee-zies

On Sunday morning, we were singing the Arky Arky song in Bible class. (The Lord said to Noah, there's going to be a floody, floody...)

I printed out the verses a couple of weeks ago to have ready when we got around to singing it. I needed some help with all the verses in the right order. Though I remember some of them, I know I couldn't do them all off the top of my head. I didn't read what I printed out until singing them in class.

Here's a new verse I have never seen before and skipped...

"The animals they came out, they came out by threesies, threesies... must have been those birds and beesies, beesies..."

Not prepared to explain that. Inquisitive kindergartners would get to asking about that and I'm not prepared to go there. I'm sure the parents appreciate that too. I told a few about it.

Besides the fact that it refers to mating, the Bible never tells us that the animals ever came out in more than pairs. Another reason not to go there.


In case you would like to have the words to this song, here they are courtesy of www.childbiblesongs.com


Rise and Shine (Arky, Arky)


The Lord said to Noah: there's gonna be a floody, floody
The Lord said to Noah: there's gonna be a floody, floody
Get those children out of the muddy, muddy, children of the Lord


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord


The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky
The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky
Build it out of gopher barky, barky, children of the Lord


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord


The animals, they came in, they came in by twosie, twosies
The animals, they came in, they came in by twosie, twosies
Elephants and kangaroosie, roosies, children of the Lord


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord


It rained and it rained for forty days and nights and daysies
It rained and it rained for forty days and nights and daysies
Almost drove those animals crazy, crazy, children of the Lord

Then Noah he sent out, he sent out a dovey, dovey

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy, children of the Lord


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory

Children of the Lord


The animals came off, came off in threesies, threesies
The animals came off in threesies, threesies
Must have been the birds and beesies, beesies


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord


Now, this is the end of, the end of my story, story
This is the end of, the end of my story, story
Everything is hunky dory, dory, children of the Lord


So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord
