New Verses for Arky, Arky

Speaking of kids and the Bible in church, I remember another Sunday, again at my very respectable Presbyterian church, when a group of rather young children, maybe grades K-2nd or so, sang two songs in the main service. The first was a “fun” upbeat song about Noah’s ark. You may have heard it before. You can get a YouTube version of it here. The second song was about how God loves us and will always take be there to take care of us (I think it was long those lines). The problem is that the kids left out several very important parts of the Noah story. So, I’ve written a few new verses for the song that I think should always be included in it from now on. They are:

Most of the people – they made God go frowny, frowny / Most of the people – they made God go frowny, frowny / It was time for them to drowny, drowny, children of the Lord.
All but just eight of the people – they sanky, sanky / All but just eight of the people – they sanky, sanky / Now we need a lot of hanky-panky, children of the Lord.
Noah got drunk and walked ’round in the nudey, nudey / Noah got drunk and walked ’round in the nudey, nudey / To him Ham did something rudey, rudey, children of the Lord.
Noah put curses on Ham’s son named Canaan, Canaan / Noah put curses on Ham’s son named Canaan, Canaan / For his brothers he’ll be slavin’, slavin’, children of the Lord.

If you believe this is more than a mythy, mythy / If you believe this is more than a mythy, mythy / Your theology is iffy, iffy, children of the Lord.

Well, I think that covers it, for the most part, I suppose.

    So you think God is not allowed to punish his creation when the sin by disobeying him?
