In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to post the song that sparked the idea for Thimblerig’s Ark, which is the story of Noah’s Ark from the animal’s point of view.
There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn
The big difference is that in Thimblerig’s Ark, the unicorns are far from the silly foolish animals from the song.
The Unicorn was written by Shel Silverstein, and made into a popular song by the Irish Rovers.
