I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover

  C                
 I’m looking over a four leaf clover, 
       D7                                   G7
That I overlooked before,  One leaf
                              C               A7
 is sunshine the second is rain,
  D7                               G7
 Look at them roses, blooming in the

lane,

 C            
 No need explaining the one
                        D7                               F
remaining, Is somebody I adore,  I’m
                           C              A7
looking over a four leaf clover,
 D7                G7       C
 That I overlooked before, 

The Unicorn

[Verse]

F                                             C7
A long time ago when the earth was
                               C7
green, t
here was more kinds of
                         F
animals than you’ve ever seen,
             F                                                  

They’d run around free while the
Bb
earth was being born, 
But the
F                                                  C7   F
loveliest of them all was the Unicorn

[Chorus]
F                                                        C7  
There were green alligators and long
                                      C7
necked geese, 
Some humpty-back
                                 F
camels and some chimpanzees
F                                                               

Some cats and rats and elephants,
       Bb
but sure as you’re born, 
The
F                                       C7    F
loveliest of all was the Unicorn

[Verse]                                  
Now God seen some sinning and it gave Him pain, 
And He says “Stand back, I’m going to make it rain.”
He says “Hey brother Noah, I’ll tell you what to do, Build me a floating zoo. And take some of them…

[Chorus]
Green alligators and long necked geese, 
Some humpty-back camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born, Don’t you forget My Unicorn.”

[Verse]
Old Noah was there to answer the call

He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin
He marched in the animals two by two
And he called out as they went through, “Hey Lord, I got your…”

[Chorus]
Green alligators and long necked geese

Some humpy-back camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord I’m so forlorn
I just can’t see no Unicorn.”

Them Unicorns were hiding, playing silly games
Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring
Oh them silly Unicorns

[Chorus]
There were green alligators and long necked geese

Some humpy-back camels and some chimpanzees
Noah cried “Close the door, cause the rain is pouring
And we just can’t wait for no Unicorn.”

[Verse]
The ark started movin, it drifted with the tide

Them Unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
And that’s why you’ll never seen a Unicorn… to this very day

[Chorus]
You’ll see green alligators and long necked geese

Some humpy-back camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born
You’re never gonna see no Unicorn
