Why Not Sea Monsters?


Seth, a graduating seminarian here, and his family gave our daughter Rebecca a neat music CD, Why Not Sea Monsters, featuring Justin Roberts and Liam Davis. It's fun and light songs inspired by the Hebrew Scriptures. Rebecca and her parents really like the album, and the first song, "Why Not a Spark?," features Leviathan, which was the topic of my preceding posting.

To hear a sample from this song from the CD-baby site, click here. I can't find the album on Amazon or I-Tunes, but it available at the CD-Baby site (click here).

Here are the lyrics:
On the first day
God said, why all this dark
God said why not a spark
God said why not a shark
---wait that's later!

On the second day
God said, why not a sky
Why are these waters so high
Why not a big pizza pie
---wait that's later!

On the third day
God said, why not a treat
Something tasty to eat
Like brocolli, carrots, and beets

And lots of love, light, love, light, love, light, love
Let there be deep blue oceans and the stars way up above
And love, love, love

On the fourth day
God said, where are the stars
Where's mercury, venus, and mars
where's all those old rusty cars
---wait that's later!

On the fifth day
God said, why not sea monsters
Why not starfish and lobsters
why not airplanes over waters
---wait that's later!

On the sixth day
Why not a vision of us
someone to reflect all this stuff
All the sparks and the seas and the birds and the trees

On the seventh day
God said, why not a nap

Sounds great! opps! The last portion did not come across. This would be PERFECT for a childrens' homily. Look forward to hearing the rest of it when we get to VTS in late May. Chuck & Adele

Thanks Chuck & Adele,
I think that they left out the very last bit so as not to be giving away the mp3 for free. I am amazed as to how much of it is included, however. ---SLC
