Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
It's just like Noah's ark
There's two of every kind
Pretty girls and boys in drag
Walking a fine thin line
Shaking hands and bussing cheeks
Licking their lips like they could eat
Me alive in a couple of weeks
Yeah, just like Noah's ark
Italian promotion men
Chomping a big cigar
Slapping backs and making cracks
About the fags in the bar
Radio boss dipping his nose in a little white packet
You can put it out son and we'll all back it
Yeah just like Noah's ark
chorus:
And the waves are crashing around us
But we're ready for the flood
And we don't need a sign like an olive branch
In the beak of a snow white dove
We're not as dumb as we might look
You can't keep us in the dark
With me and you it's two by two
Just like Noah's ark
These four walls have seen
The Cockettes and the Casters
From San Francisco to Ohio
I've seen beauty and disaster
Cocky young roosters and little chicks
Flashing smiles, shaking them hips
Trying to hook it up for the late night shift
Here in Noah's ark
chorus:
And the waves are crashing around us
And we're ready for the flood
And we don't need a sign like an olive branch
In the beak of a snow white dove
We're not as dumb as we might look
Or locked up in the dark
We can sort out the snakes from the animals
Just like Noah's ark
And we wrote it as we saw it
From the centre of the stage
All access to the liars
Who claim they wrote a page
But for every tiny dancer
There's a dog that's had its day
The truth is never quite the same
As what the papers say
(repeat chorus 1)
