Thread Name: songs about building boats/ships?
Oh...sure! I've been singing this one for years:

"The Lord looked down from his window in the sky,
Said "I created man but I don't remember why -
Nothing but fighting since creation day
I'll send a little water and wash them all away."

The Lord came down to look around a spell,
And there was Mr. Noah behaving mighty well
And that is the reason the Scriptures record
That Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord,
And he landed high and dry.

The Lord said "Noah, there's gonna be a flood
There's gonna be some water and there's gonna be some mud
So take off your hat, Noah, take off your coat,
Get Ham, Shem, and Japheth and build yourself a boat.

Noah said, "Lord, I don't believe I could."
The Lord said, "Noah, get some gopher wood,
Never know what you can do till you try,
Build it fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high."


Noah said, "There she is, there she is, Lord!"
The Lord said, "Noah, it's time to get aboard;
Take of each creature a he and a she
And of course Mrs. Noah and your whole family."

Noah said, "Lord, it's getting mighty dark."
The Lord said, "Noah, get those creatures on the Ark."
Noah said, "Lord, it's beginning to pour."
The Lord said, "Noah, hurry up and shut the door."


The Ark rose up on the bosom of the deep,
And after forty days Mr. Noah took a peep;
Said, "We're not moving, Lord, where are we at?"
The Lord said, "You're sitting right on Mount Ararat."

Noah said, "Lord, it's getting mighty dry,"
The Lord said, "Noah, see my rainbow in the sky,
Take all your creatures and people the earth
But be sure you're not more trouble than you're worth."
