FIGURE   

Walk all around your corner
Partner left you know
Men star right once around you go
Turn your partner left, corner dosado
Same little lass do a dopaso
Ya gonna turn her by the left, new corner by the right
New partner by the left, four ladies chain tonight
Roll promenade, just as sure as you're born
*The prettiest of them all is a unicorn


ALTERNATE LYRICS (last time through figure)

*You seldom ever see a unicorn

MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies chain straight across you go
Now rollaway, circle to the left you go
Four ladies rollaway, do a left allemande
Dosado at home then weave to Ireland
Green alligators, long necked geese

Meet and dosado full around you see
Men star left just as sure as you're born
Come back and promenade with your unicorn

The Unicorn
 
 

A long time ago, when the Earth was green
There was more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
They'd run around free while the Earth was being born
And the loveliest of all was the unicorn

Chorus:
There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn

The Lord seen some sinning and it gave Him pain
And He says, "Stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
He says, "Hey Noah, I'll tell you what to do
Build me a floating zoo,
and take some of those...

Green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
Don't you forget My unicorns

Old Noah was there to answer the call
He finished up making the ark just as the rain started to fall
He marched the animals two by two
And he called out as they came through
"Hey Lord,

I've got green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
I just can't find no unicorns"

And Noah looked out through the driving rain
Them unicorns were hiding, playing silly games
Kicking and splashing while the rain was falling
Oh, them silly unicorns

There was green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Noah cried, "Close the door because the rain is falling
And we just can't wait for no unicorns"

The ark started moving, it drifted with the tide
The unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
That's why you never see unicorns to this very day

You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
You're never gonna see no unicorns

Lyrics by Shel Silverstein.
Recorded by Irish Rovers.
