Children – Adam Was A Gardener lyrics

Adam was a gardener
And Eve, she was his spouse,
They lost their jobs by stealing fruit
And went to keeping house.
There it was a quiet one
And peaceful in the main,
Until they had a baby boy and
Went to raising Cain.

Young folks, old folks,
Everybody come.
Come on o'er to our place
And make yourself at home.
But please check your chewing gum
And razors at the door,
We'll tell you Bible stories
That you never heard before.

Esau was a farmer of a
Wild and woolly make;
His daddy gave him half the farm
And half to Brother Jake;
But Esau saw that his title,
It wasn't very clear,
So he sold his half to Brother Jake
And said he didn't 'keer. '

Young folks, old folks,
Everybody come.
Come on o'er to our place
And make yourself at home.
But please check your chewing gum
And razors at the door,
We'll tell you Bible stories
That you never heard before.

Daniel was a smartypants who
Wouldn't obey the King;
The King got mad and said he wouldn't
Stand for such a thing;
He chucked him down a manhole
With lions underneath,
But Daniel was a dentist, and
He pulled the lions' teeth.

Young folks, old folks,
Everybody come.
Come on o'er to our place
And make yourself at home.
But please check your chewing gum
And razors at the door,
We'll tell you Bible stories
That you never heard before.

Jonah was an emigrant,
So tells the Bible tale;
He bought a one-way ticket on
A trans-Atlantic whale;
But the whale's interior
Was cramped, at very best,
So Jonah pressed the button -- and
The whale, he did the rest.

Young folks, old folks,
Everybody come.
Come on o'er to our place
And make yourself at home.
But please check your chewing gum
And razors at the door,
We'll tell you Bible stories
That you never heard before
