It's just like Noah's Ark
There's two of every kind
Pretty girls and boys in drag
Walking a fine thin line

Shaking hands and bussing cheeks
Licking their lips like they could eat me alive
In a couple of weeks
Yeah, just like Noah's Ark

Italiano promotion men
Chomping a big cigar
Slapping backs and making cracks
About the fags in the bar

Radio boss dipping his nose
In a little white packet
You can put it out son and we'll all back it
Yeah, just like Noah's Ark

And the waves are crashing 'round us
But we're ready for the flood
And we don't need a sign like an olive branch
In the beak of a snow white dove

We're not as dumb as we might look
You can't keep us in the dark
With me and you, it's two by two
Just like Noah's Ark

These four walls have seen
The Cockettes and the Casters
From San Francisco to Ohio
I've seen beauty and disaster

Cocky young roosters, little chicks
Flashing smiles, shaking them hips
Trying to hook it up for the late night shift
Here in Noah's Ark

And the waves are crashing 'round us
But we're ready for the flood
And we don't need a sign like an olive branch
In the beak of a snow white dove

We're not as dumb as we might look
All locked up in the dark
We can sort out snakes from the animals
Just like Noah's Ark

And we wrote it as we saw it
From the center of the stage
All access to the liars
Who claim they wrote a page

But for every tiny dancer
There's a dog that's had its day
The truth is never quite the same
As what the papers say, oh, yeah

And the waves are crashing 'round us
But we're ready for the flood
And we don't need a sign like an olive branch
In the beak of a snow white dove

We're not as dumb as we might look
You can't keep us in the dark
With me and you, it's two by two
Just like Noah's Ark
