When the Flanders family sang this song to try to get Homer Simpson to return to church, he kept cutting them off. After some searching, I found a couple of slightly different versions; I emended them slightly to form this one.

RISE AND SHINE

God said to Noah ‘There’s going to be a floody, floody.’
God said to Noah ‘There’s going to be a floody, floody;
‘Get those animals’ *clap* ‘out of the muddy, muddy’
Children of the Lord.

Chorus:
So, rise and shine and *clap* give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord.

God said to Noah ‘You better build an arky, arky.’
God said to Noah ‘You better build an arky, arky;
‘Build it out of’ *clap* ‘hickory barky, barky’
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

The animals came, they came in twosies, twosies.
The animals came, they came in twosies, twosies.
Elephants and *clap* kangaroosey-roosies.
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

It rained and rained for forty long daysie-daysies.
It rained and rained for forty long daysie-daysies.
Nearly drove those *clap* animals crazy crazy
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy.
The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy.
Everything was *clap* fine and dandy, dandy.
Children of the Lord.

Chorus
