NOAH'S ARK SHANTY

In Frisco Bay there were three ships
To me way, hay, hay-oh
In Frisco Bay there were three ships
A long time ago

And one of them was Noah's old ark
All covered all o'er wi' hickory bark

They took two animals of every kind (2x)

The bull and the cow they started for t' row (2x)

Then said old Noah with a flick of his whip
"Come stop this row or I'll scuttle the ship"

But the bull struck his arm through the side of the ark
And the little black dog he started fer t' bark

So Noah took the dog, shoved his nose up the hole
And ever since then dogs' nose has been cold.

It's a long long time and a very long time
A long long time and a very long time
