lyrics

how did the animals enter the ark?
two at a time, two at a time
every elephant, every lark?
two at a time, two at a time
back off the boat with a baby to raise?
two at a time, two at a time
and how did the animals go to their graves?
one at a time.

so don’t delay
send somebody in
it’s a slow decay
waiting for him

how many voices make harmony’s bliss?
two at a time, two at a time
how many lips do you need for a kiss?
two at a time, two at a time
on how many knees do I kneel to pray?
two at a time, two at a time
as how many evenings slip into the day?
one at a time.

so don’t delay
send somebody in
it’s a slow decay
waiting for him

how many lovers out strolling the block?

how many hands do they hold as they walk?

how many faces look up at the stars?

and how many others alone in the bars?
one at a time.

so don’t delay
send somebody in
it’s a slow decay
waiting for him
