Rise and Shine Lyrics

Rise and Shine Lyrics

The Lord told Noah there’s gonna be a floody, floody
Lord told Noah there’s gonna be a floody, floody
Get those children out of the muddy, muddy, children of the Lord.

The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky
Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky
Build it out of gopher barky, barky, 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 give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord
.

The animals, they came, they came in by twosies twosies
The animals, they came, they came in by twosies, twosies
Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies, children of the Lord.

It rained and poured for forty daysies, daysies
It rained and poured for forty daysies, daysies
Almost drove those animals crazies, crazies, 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 give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord
.

The sun came out, and dried up the landy, landy
The sun came out, and dried up the landy, landy
Look! There’s the sun, it dried up the landy, landy
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy, 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 give God the glory, glory
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 give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord, children of the Lord
