Piece of Eight lyrics

Piece of Eight

STORYTELLERS
And Noad and his fmaily worked from sun to sun to sun
Till the day before the prow he stood and said

NOAH
With this peg of gopher wood your ark oh Lord is done

STORYTELLERS
With one final peg of gopher wood
The ark at last
Was done

bum ba bum bum ba bum bum ba ba bum ba ba ba bum

An Noah called to his servant girl
Yonah was her name
He had always treated her kindly Though she wore the mark of shame
As the daughter of the tainted race
She wore the mark of Cain

And she came bowed the servant girl
With the mark upon her head
And she asked

YONAH
What do you wish my Lord?

STORYTELLERS
And this is what he said
He said

NOAH
Yonah, lay the table
For tonight we celebrate
For tonight instead of seven places
Tonight there will be eight

STORYTELLERS
For this was the night the youngest son
Japeth was his name
Would bring to dinner his wife to be
And his choice proclaim
And the empty chair was meant for her
The girl to be his wife
Who would journey with him on the ark
To a post deleuvian life
He said

JAPETH
Yonah, lay the table
Dont forget the extra plate
For tonight instead of seven people
The family will be eight

STORYTELLERS
First came Noah and his Wife
In a bright and merry mood
Eager to meet their daughter in law
And share their home and food
And add her to their brood
Next there came the brothers two
Ham and Shem
And the daughters of the race of Seth
They chose to marry them
Their beautiful wives from the race of Seth they brought along with them

NOAH, MAMA, HAM, SHEM, JAPETH, APHRA, AISHA
Oh Father for all we have recieved
We thank you
Once more we gather in the dying light

YONAH
Oh Father
For all i have recieved

NOAH, MAMA, HAM, SHEM, JAPETH, APHRA, AISHA
Once more we pray you Father
Bless us tonight

YONAH
I thank you

STORYTELLERS
The courses came and the minutes past
And the girl did not appear
Till Noah turned to Japeth
And he said

NOAH
My Son i fear

STORYTELLERS
But Japeth laughed and laughed some more
And told them all

JAPETH
She's here!

STORYTELLERS
Well by now you've guessed what happened next
For it's quite a familiar fable
He went to Yonah the servant girl
And lead her to the table
He said

JAPETH
Yonah, join the table
Come and sit here at my side
For it's you i love best in all the world
And you shall be my bride
Yes it's you i love best in all the world
And i want you for my bride

STORYTELLERS
He brought Yonah to the table
And he did not hesitate
Though his Father said to wait
And his Mother was in a state
And the Brothers and Wives felt the shock of their lives
And they all of them dropped their forks and knives
As they all could calculate
The family was eight
One,two,three,four,five,six,seven
Eight!
