A Piece of Eight Lyrics

(Story - tellers)

And Noah and his family worked

From son to son to son

Till the day before the prow

He stood and said

(Noah)

With this peg of gopher wood

Your ark, O Lord, is done

(Story - tellers)

With final peg of gopher wood

The ark at last

Was done

Ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

And Noah called to his servant girl

Yonah was her name

He had always treated her kindly

Though she bore the mark of shame

As a daughter of the tainted race

Ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

She bore the mark of Cain

Ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

And she came and bowed, the servant girl

With the mark upon her head

And she asked

(Yonah)

What do you wish my lord?

(Story-tellers)

And this is what he said

He said

(Noah)

Yonah lay the table

For tonight we celebrate

And tonight instead of seven places

Tonight there will be eight

Ba ba bum

(Story-tellers)

Tonight instead of seven places

Tonight there would be eight

Ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

(Male story-tellers)

For this was the night

The youngest son

Japheth was his name

(Female story-tellers)

Would bring to dinner his wife to be

And his choice proclaim

(All story-tellers)

And the empty chair was meant for her

The girl to be his wife

Who would journey with him on the ark

To a post diluvian life

He said

(Japheth)

Yonah lay the table

Don't forget the extra plate

For tonight instead of seven people

The family will be eight

Ba ba bum

(Story-tellers)

Tonight instead of seven people

Tonight there would be eight

Ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum

(Story-tellers)

First came Noah and his wife in a bright and merry mood

Eager to meet their daughter-in-law

And share their home and food

And add her to their brood

bum bum ba ba bum

(Male story-tellers)

Next there came the brothers two

Ham and Sham

(Female story-tellers)

And the daughters of the race of Seth

They chose to marry them

Their beautiful wives from the race of Seth

They brought along with them

Hmmmmmmm...

(Noah, Mama, Ham, Aphra, Sham, Ayesha and Japheth)

Oh Father, for all we have received

We thank You

Once more we gather in the dying light

(Yonah)

Oh Father, for all I have received

(Noah, Mama, Ham, Aphra, Sham, Ayesha and Japheth)

Once more we pray you Father

Bless us tonight

(Yonah)

I thank You

Ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

(Story-tellers)

And the courses came and the minutes passed

But the girl did not appear

Till Noah turned to Japheth and he said

(Noah)

My son,I fear

(Story-tellers)

But Japheth laughed and laughed some more

And told them all

(Japheth)

She's here!

Ba ba bum bum ba ba ba bum ba bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

(Female storyteller)

Well by now you've guessed

What happened next

For its quiet a familiar fable

(Male story-teller)

He went to Yonah, the servant girl

And led her to the table

He said

(Japheth)

Yonah join the table

Come and sit her at my side

For its you I love best in all the world

And you shall be my bride

Its you I love best in all the world

And I want you for my bride

(Story-tellers)

He brought Yonah to the table

And he did not hesitate

Though his father said to wait

And his mother was in a state

And the brothers and wives

Felt the shock of their lives

And they all of them dropped

Their forks and knives

For they all could calculate

The family was eight

Ba ba bum bum bum ba ba bum bum bum ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

One two three four five six seven

Ba ba bum bum ba ba bum

Eight !!!
