Who Built the Ark? i s a song featured on Raffi's album More Singable Songs. It tells the story of a man named Noah who lived a long time ago and saved some animals (two of every kind of land animal and bird; male and female) from a flood and built a boat called an Ark. This is also a Bible song (based with the Bible story Noah's Ark).

Lyrics[]

Well, who built the Ark? Noah, Noah,
Who built the Ark? Brother Noah built the Ark

Now didn't old Noah build the Ark?
He built it out of hickory bark.

He built it long, both wide and tall,
Plenty of room for the large and the small

Well, who built the Ark? Noah, Noah,
Who built the Ark? Brother Noah built the Ark

In came the animals two by two
Hippopotamus and kangaroo

In came the animals three by three
Two big cats and a bumblebee

In came the animals four by four
Two through the window and two through the door

In came the animals five by five
Five little sparrows, doin' the jive

Well, who built the Ark? Noah, Noah
Who built the Ark? Brother Noah built the Ark

In came the animals six by six
The elephant laughed at the monkey's tricks

In came the animals seven by seven
Four from home and the rest from heaven

In came the animals eight by eight
Some were on time and the others were late

In came the animals nine by nine
Some were shoutin' and some were cryin'

In came the animals ten by ten
Five black roosters and five black hens

Then Noah says, "Go and shut that door,
The rain's started dropping and we can't take more!"

Well, who built the Ark? Noah, Noah,
Who built the Ark? Brother Noah built the Ark
