One more river
Language: English 
The animals came in two by two,
Vive la compagnie!
The centipede with the kangaroo,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.

The animals came in three by three,
Vive la compagnie!
The elephant on the back of the flea,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.

The animals came in four by four,
Vive la compagnie!
The camel, he got stuck in the door,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.

The animals came in five by five,
Vive la compagnie!
The missing link was the last to arrive,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.

The animals came in six by six,
Vive la compagnie!
The monkey, he was up to his tricks,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.

Then the door was shut and it started to rain,
Vive la compagnie!
If you want any more you must sing it again,
Vive la compagnie!
One more river, and that's the river of Jordan,
One more river, there's one more river to cross.
