Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

He saw an animal that liked to growl
Big furry paws and he liked to howl
Great big furry back and furry hair
I think I'll call it a bear

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

He saw an animal up on the hill
Chewing up so much grass until she was filled
He saw milk coming out but he didn't know how
He said I think I'll call it a cow

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

He saw an animal that liked to snort
Horns on his head, and they weren't too short
And it looked there was nothing that he couldn't pull
He said I I I I think I'll call it a bull

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

He saw an animal leaving a muddy trail
Real dirty face and a curly tail
He wasn't too small and he wasn't too big
He said I think I'll call it a pig

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

Next animal that he did meet
Had wool on his back and hooves on his feet
Eating grass on a mountain side so steep
He said well I'm gonna call that one a sheep

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning long time ago

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass
He saw him disappear by a tree near a lake
