5. Little Baby Bum: The Lion and the Unicorn
The Lion and the Unicorn is an old nursery rhyme and folk song. It is based on the symbolism of the lion and the unicorn in the history of the United Kingdom. The lion symbolized England, and the unicorn is the symbol of Scotland. Since 1603, the lion and the unicorn have represented the United Kingdom in the Royal coat of arms.
The rhyme also appeared in Lewis Carroll’s novel Through the Looking-Glass.
The Lion and the Unicorn Lyrics
The lion and the unicorn were fighting for the crown The lion beat the unicorn all around the town Some gave them white bread and some gave them brown Some gave them plum cake and drummed them out of town
6. Toddler Tunes: My Angel Unicorn
My Angel Unicorn is a sweet feel-good tune targeted at young children. The lyrics are about spending magical time with an angel unicorn.
7. The Irish Rovers: The Unicorn Song
The Unicorn Song is a famous piece of music published by The Irish Rovers in 1967. The lyrics are based on the story of Noah’s Ark in the Bible, but The Irish Rovers have mixed up the unicorns with this ancient story. Unicorns were too eager to play “silly games”, so they missed Noah’s Ark and drowned. This is given as the explanation for why you don’t see many unicorns around these days.
The lyrics might be a bit much for the youngest children, but older kids probably understand it’s just a song; of course, unicorns are still around and doing well!
The Unicorn Song Lyrics
A long time ago, when the Earth was still green And there were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen They'd run around free while the earth was being born But the loveliest of all was the unicorn There was green alligators and long-necked geese Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born The loveliest of all was the unicorn Now God seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain And he says, "stand back, I'm going to make it rain" He says, "Hey, brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do Build me a floating zoo And take some of them green alligators and long-necked geese Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born Don't you forget my unicorn" Old Noah was there to answer the call He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin' He marched in the animals two by two And he called out as they went through "Hey, Lord" I've got your green alligators and long-necked geese Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn I just can't see no unicorn" Then Noah looked out through the driving rain Them unicorns was hiding, playing silly games Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring Oh, them silly unicorns There was green alligators and long-necked geese Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees Noah cried, "close the doors 'cause the rain is pourin' And we just can't wait for no unicorns" The ark started movin', it drifted with the tide Them unicorns looked up from the rock and they cried And the waters came down and sort of floated them away And that's why you'll never see a unicorn, to this very day You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born You're never gonna see no unicorn
