Noah’s Arky Arky

August 16, 2006 at 3:32 pm 12 comments

This is a fun one that we learned long ago at a church kids’ camp.  I seem to remember there being even more verses, but these are the only ones that I can remember.

The Lord said to Noah
There’s gonna be a floody, floody
Lord said to Noah
There’s gonna be a floody, floody
Get those children (clap) out of the muddy, muddy
Children of the Lord

So Noah, he built him
He built him an arky, arky
Noah, he built him
He built him an arky, arky
Built it out of (clap) hickory barky, barky
Children of the Lord

The animals, they came by
Two-sies, two-sies, two-sies
Animals, they came by
Two-sies, two-sies, two-sies
Elephants and (clap) kangaroo-sies, roo-sies
Children of the Lord

It rained and poured for
Forty long day-sies, day-sies
Rained and poured for
Forty long day-sies, day-sies
Nearly drove those (clap) animals crazy, crazy
Children of the Lord

The sun came out and
Dried up the landy, landy
Sun came out and
Dried up the landy, landy
Everything is (clap) fine and dandy, dandy
Children of the Lord

The animals, they left by
Three-sies, three-sies, three-sies
Animals, they left by
Three-sies, three-sies, three-sies
Rabbits, squirrels and (clap) chimpanzee-sies, zee-sies
Children of the Lord

So rise and shine and
Give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine and
Give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine and (clap) give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord

(Thanks to reader Kim for reminding me of the “find and dandy” verse!)

    Carly,

    I’m not sure where this song originally came from, but I did a search for it on Amazon.com and found quite a few CDs that include it. (Hopefully that link will work to retrieve the same search.)

    Hope that helps a little! Thanks for visiting Kid Songs.

    You mentioned there were other verses…. one we sing after the rain verse is

    The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
    Sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
    Everything is fine and dandy, dandy
    Children of the Lord

    I love this song and am going to teach it in Sunday School. I found the lyrics here at the first link with an audio version of the song.

    If you’ve never heard “Rise and Shine” here is the first verse which is the tune for the whole song. http://www.songsforteaching.com/campfiresongs/riseandshine.htm

    Singing songs rocks!

    Thank you for posting this song; I’ve been trying to find the lyrics so that I could sing them to my infant son. There’s a final verse I remember from my childhood Sunday school days:

    “This is the end of our story, story, story, story,
    This is the end of our story, story, story, story,
    Everything is (clap) hunky-dorry, dorry,
    Children of the Lord”

    On second stanza as far as I remember it’s like this.. we sang the song when i was in Grade 4..And I really love this song.

    The Lord told Noah to build Him an arky arky
    Lord told Noah to build Him an arky arky
    Build it out of, go for barky barky
    Children of the Lord

    On 4th stanza, it’s:
    The rain was poured for forty day-sies day-sies
    Rain was poured for forty day-sies day-sies

    Onthe 3rd stanza:
    It’s not elephant it’s like sounds of different animals goes together..
    I dont know if you will consider. But I know it’s like that.

    Thanks for posting this song. Now I know what cd to buy for my 4 kids. God bless you

    we always sang “he made it out of gopher barky barky” b/c I’m pretty sure that is what it is in the Bible

    After the rained and poured verse there are 2 missing:
    Well, finally, yes finally
    the rain it did stoppy stoppy (2)
    landed on a mountain toppy toppy
    Children of the Lord!

    Then Noah he sent out
    He sent out a dovey, dovey(2)
    Dovey said “There’s clear skies abovey, abovey.”
    Children of the Lord!

    I have also heard a verse…i think it would be the last verse, but not sure (sang slow at first until upto normal speed).
    Now there were those who didn’t make the trippy troopy, there were those who didn’t make the trippy troopy. They lost out on felow shippy shippy children of the Lord
