Man Gave Names To All The Animals

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Chorus (Johnny Cash, June Carter, John Carter Cash):
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.


Johnny:
He saw an animal that liked to growl
Big furry paws and he liked to howl
Big furry back and furry hair
He said, ah, I think I’ll call it a bear

Saw an animal upon a hill
Chewing up someone’s grass ‘til he had his fill
He saw milk coming out but he didn’t know how
He said I think I’ll call it a cow

Chorus:
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, a long time ago

Johnny:
He saw an animal that liked to snort
Horns on his head and he wasn’t too short
It looked like there wasn’t anything he couldn’t pull
And he said ah I think I’ll call it a bull

Saw an animal leaving a muddy trail
A real dirty face and a curly tail
He wasn’t too small and he wasn’t too big
Think I’ll call it a pig

Chorus:
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

Johnny: I saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way right through the grass
Saw him disappear right into the lake
John Carter: Daddy, that’s the one they call the snake

Chorus:
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

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals In the beginning, Johnny: long time ago
