Lyrics

1. The animals went in two by two
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in two by two
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in two by two
The elephant and the kangaroo
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

2. The animals went in three by three
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in three by three
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in three by three
The wasp, the ant and the bumblebee
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

3. The animals went in four by four
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in four by four
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in four by four
The great hippopotamus stuck in the door
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

4. The animals went in five by five
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in five by five
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in five by five
By hunting each other they kept alive
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

5. The animals went in six by six
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in six by six
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in six by six
They turned out monkey because of his tricks
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

6. The animals went in seven by seven
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in seven by seven
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in seven by seven
The little pig thought he was going to heaven
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

7. The animals went in eight by eight
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in eight by eight
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in eight by eight
The tortoise thought he was going to be late
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.

8. The animals went in nine by nine
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in nine by nine
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in nine by nine
Came marching up in a long straight line
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.
The animals went in ten by ten
Hoorah! Hoorah!

9. The animals went in ten by ten
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in ten by ten
Hoorah! Hoorah!
The animals went in ten by ten
The last one in was the little red hen
And they all went into the ark
For to get out of the rain.
