I was born about ten thousand years ago

I was born about ten thousand years ago,
and there's nothing in the world that I don't know,
I saw Peter, Paul and Moses, playing ring around the roses,
and I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so.

I saw Satan when he looked the garden o'er.
I saw Adam and Eve driven from the door,
and behind the bushes peeping, saw the apple they were eating,
and I'll swear that I'm the guy that a'te the core.

I saw Jonah when he shoved off in the whale,
and I thought he'd never live to tell the tale,
but old Jonah'd eaten garlic, and he gave the whale the colic,
so he coughed him up and let him outta jail.

I saw Samson when he laid the village cold,
I saw Daniel tame the lions in their hold;
I helped build the tower of Babel up as high as they were able,
and there's lots of other things I haven't told.
