Man gave names to all the animals

I was just introduced to this song that I thought was only sung by Jason Mraz - in looking up the lyrics I found that Bob Dylan performed it as well...as well as many others!



It's a fun little song that I think I'll teach to my Sunday school kids soon.

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
ah ahhh
