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 
Yea 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 put it out son and we'll all back it 
Yea it's just like Noah's ark 
 
[chorus:] 
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 and little chicks 
Flashing smiles, shaking them hips 
Trying to hook it up for the late night shift 
Here in Noah's ark 
 
[repeat chorus] 
 
And we wrote it as we saw it from the centre 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 
 
[repeat chorus]
