And owing to shortage of space, like,
He'd take just two of each onto t'ship

They had trouble at first with the rabbits
'Cos they started off with just two
But every morning at roll call
A different number they drew

A lion bit the head off a wart-hog
And a monkey climbed up the flue.
One giraffe were so big they sawed 'ole in the roof
And left it wi' it's head pokin' through

The rain started falling the very next day
And all was made safe and secure
They'd just casted off and were sailing up t'street
When they heard a loud bang on the door

Said Noah, out loud, "Oooh is it?"
And a quiet little voice then replied
"It's a couple of dinossers wanting a trip
It's cowd - will you let us inside?"

"Bog off" said Noah, "We've got no more room
We can hardly keep afloat
And get yer foot off the anchor chain
Yer rockin' the bloomin' boat"
  So Noah sailed off with his ark full of pets
And journeyed the Accrington Sea
They anchored by Holland's Pies chimney
And Noah was starting his tea

A knock came to t'door, "It's dinossers!" said Mother
And Noah looked out through the rain
They said "Please let us in", Noah said "There's no room,
T'rabbits have started breedin' again"

The rain packed it in some days later
"Eeh! 'asn't it gone quiet", Noah said
Then a budgie flew by with a log in it's gob
And dropped it right on Noah's head

By the time he came round all the water had gone;
Th'ark were hangin' from Hollands Pies chimney
So they opened the door and let all the beasts go
Except for one camel called Sidney
(They kept him as a door-mat)

And as for the dinossers, they're not really extinct
You can see 'em in Loch Ness in t'dark
They pop up their heads at the ships in the night
Still lookin' for Noah and his ark.
