Saw an ad in the newspaper that caught my eye 
I said to my baby this sounds like a ticket for you and I 
It said volunteers wanted for a very special trip 
To commune with Mother Nature on a big wooden ship 
We took a taxi to the river in case any places were free 
There was an old guy with a beard 
And every kind of creature as far as the eye could see 

This old guy was the boss, he said, 
"I won't tell you no lie 
But there's more to this journey that is apparent to the eye" 
He said he'd heard God's message on the radio 
It was going to rain forever and he'd told him to go 
"I'll protect you all don't worry I'll be a father to you all 
I'll save two of every animal, no matter how small 
But I'll need some assistants to look after the zoo 
I can't see nobody better so you'll just have to do" 
I said, "Just tell me something before it's too late and we're gone 
I mean just how safe is this boat we'll be on?" 

"It's Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady" 

It rained for forty days and forty long nights 
I'd never seen rain like it and it looked like our old friend 
Was being proved right 
We had no time to worry though there was just to much to do 
Between the signified monkey and the kangaroo 
We had to wash all the animals we had to feed them too 
We were merely human slaves in a big floating zoo 
She said, "Hey Baby I don't mean to be flip 
But it seems this old man is on some power trip" 
I said, "No, no sugar you must be wrong 
I mean look at the size of this boat we're on. 
We're as safe as houses, as safe as mother's milk 
He's as cool as November and as smooth as China silk 
He's God's best friend, he's got a seat on the board 
And life may be tough but we're sailing with the Lord." 

Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 

Woke up this morning and something had changed 
Like a room in my house had just been rearranged 
She said, "It's stopped raining and I know the guy's kind 
But if we stay here much longer I'm gonna lose my mind." 
So we said we had a mission for his favourite dove 
To see if there was any mercy from this great God above 
So to find dry land, away the white bird flew 
We didn't need no country just a rock would do 
When the dove came back to us, he threw down a twig 
It was manna from heaven and meant we could blow this gig 
"But the rock's too small," he said, "can't you see?" 
I said, "It's just perfect for her, it's perfect for me." 

Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady 
Rock steady Rock steady
