2G

Two red butterflies fluttering by,

D7

one flew low and one flew high.

G

They were hurrying, want to know why?

D7 G

Where were they going that morning? D / / / G /

Two brown monkeys caught my eye,

one was cute; the other was sly.

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

Two grey hippos thundering by,

one was wet; the other was dry.

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

Two yellow lions both drew nigh,

one was bold and one was shy.

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

Two black spiders scurrying by,

one said ‘Hi!” and the other said “Bye”

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

Two orange tigers raced on by,

one was fierce and one was kind.

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

Two white swans went gliding by,

one was clumsy and one had style.

They were hurrying, want to know why?

Where were they going that morning?

All of the animals, great and small,

were made by God ‘cos he loved them all.

They were listening to his call

to come to the Ark that morning
