Open Up My Ark Door

(parody of "Lookin' Out My Back Door" by CCR)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this is a fun song, and a reminder that just because God saved Noah and his family from the flood, that doesn't mean they had it easy. Sometimes His deliverance for us may not seem pleasant, but it always beats the alternative.


Just watched all things get destroyed, 'cept me and my wife and boys.
We've all been here, half a year on the boat.
Cabin fever sets in, everyone's suggestin',
Ooh, Lord, do open up my ark door.

Bellows from the harp seals, pigs are making high squeals.
Listen to the restless creatures dying to get out.
I know God's will is holy, the land is drying slowly.
Ooh, Lord, do open up my ark door.

Kangaroos and elephants are getting out of hand.
Will the flood subside, so they can fly the coop? Doot-do-doo.
Ark was our salvation, but we're near desperation.
Ooh, Lord, do open up my ark door.

solo (like a verse)

Kangaroos and elephants are getting out of hand.
Won't the flood subside, so they can fly the coop? Doot-do-doo.
Can we hit land tomorrow? Ararat or Kilimanjaro?
Ooh, Lord, do open up my ark door.

Just watched all things get destroyed, 'cept me and my wife and boys.
We've all been here, half a year on the boat.
Next time that it's rainin', you won't hear me complainin'.
Ooh, Lord, do open up my ark door.
