Naming lyrics

Naming

ADAM
A game? What sort of game?

FATHER
Naming the animals!

Come and gather in the meadow
In the meadow, in the sun
Come together everyone
Now the naming has begun

Leave your burrow, field, and furrow
For the meadow and the sun
Come and gather everyone
Now the naming has begun
The naming, the naming

ADAM AND EVE
The naming, the naming

FATHER
Ah ah ah oh way ah

EVE
Two footed

ADAM
Four footed

EVE
Six footed

ADAM
More footed

EVE
Fleet-footed

ADAM
Sure-footed

ADAM AND EVE
What a grand array-o!

EVE
Duck-billed and red-breasted

ADAM
Star-nosed and quill-crested

ADAM AND EVE
No wonder you rested on the seventh day-o!

Stripe and spot
Feather and fur
Maybe you forgot
How many there were

Hoot and honk
Whistle and purr
Flap and gallop and hop
Once you started making them
It seems you couldn't stop

MEN
Come and gather in the meadow
In the meadow in the sun
Come together everyone
Now the naming has begun

WOMEN simultaneously as above
Two-footed, four-footed
Six-footed, more footed
Fleet-footed, sure-footed
What a grand array-o!

STORYTELLERS
The naming, the naming!

Wings are waving, tails are wagging
Kangaroo, kinkajou

Lion, lemur
Hartebeest, hare
Chimpanzee and cinnamon bear
Numbat, wombat, janguarundi
Deermouse, doormouse, coati mundi
Peccary, porcupine and pronghorn
Tiger, tortoise, unicorn!

Come and gather in the meadow
In the meadow in the sun
Come together everyone
