Animals On The Ark

Two lions in a pen
Upon Noah's ark
Wondering what the future holds
What adventure they must embark
A female and a male
Lying side by side
Thankful to the Almighty
Of all the world's lions
They were the chosen two
Now they will be the only ones
When GOD's holy plan is through

Beside the lion's pen
Two bears lay their head
On a fresh layer of hay
Where Noah made their bed
Waiting for the rain to stop
So the new world they can see
Walk along wooded paths
And scratch up against a tree

Replenish the Earth
Is what they were told
And pass down this  story
To your cubs when you grow old
Forty days and forty nights
The rain did come down
Until the glorious day
Outside there was no sound
The time had finally come
To walk upon the Earth
Replenish our species
Give the world it's rebirth
