Song of the Baby Seal
by Don Elroy
Submitted by the author - 14 Apr 2004
 
 I am just a baby
Though my coat may have turned grey
I promise I won't hurt you
Now won't you put your guns away
Oh send the ark soon lord, I pray
 
The empty shell beside me
Was once so full of life and love
Why did you have to kill her
She was as gentle as a dove
Oh send the ark soon lord above
 
And will the ark come today, Oh lord
And will it take me away, Oh lord
And will the ark come today, Oh lord
Please take me away
 
My mother lies beside me
My father killed by a sailor's lance
Now I'm staring down your barrel
I guess I'll join them in the dance
Oh send the ark, it's my last chance
 
And will the ark come today, Oh lord
And will it take me away, Oh lord
And will the ark come today, Oh lord
Please take me away
 
 (c)1987 Don Elroy, Living Canvas Music
