The Animals Went In Two By Two : Lyrics

1. The animals went in two by two, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The elephant and the kangaroo, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in two by two,
The elephant and the kangaroo,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

2. The animals went in three by three, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The wasp, the ant and the bumble bee, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in three by three,
The wasp , the ant and the bumble bee,
Refrain.

3. The animals went in four by four, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The great hippopotamus stuck in the door, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in four by four,
The great hippopotamus stuck in the door,
Refrain.

4. The animals went in five by five, Hurrah! Hurrah!
By eating each other they kept alive, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in five by five,
By eating each other they kept alive,
Refrain.

5. The animals went in six by six, Hurrah! Hurrah!
They turned out monkey because of his tricks, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in six by six,
They turned out monkey because of his tricks,
Refrain.

6. The animals went in seven by seven, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The little pig thought he was goin’ to heav’n, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in seven by seven,
The little pig thought he was goin’ to heav’n,
Refrain.
