another verse we used to sing,
Adam and Eve in the garden, dressed in red and green
Their garments in the spring time were the finest ever seen
But what about the autumn when the leaves begin to fall
And what about the winter when their were no leaves at all

Oh young folk, old folk everybody come
join the merry Sunday school and make yourselves at home
bring your sticks of chewing gum and sit upon the floor
and we'll tell you bible stories like you never heard before.

My Grandpa taught me this when I was a boy, this is the best I can remember it:

Young folks, old folks, everybody come,
Come join the dark Sunday School, we're gonna have some fun,
There's a place to leave your chewing gum and razors at the door,
Now you'll hear some Bible stories that you've never heard before!

The world was made in six days and finished on the seventh,
According to the contract it should have been the eleventh,
The carpenters got drunk and the masons wouldn't work,
So the easiest thing to do was to fill it up with dirt!

Daniel was a wise guy who wouldn't obey the king,
The king said he wouldn't stand for any such a thing,
So they threw him down the manhole to the lions underneath,
But Daniel was a dentist and he pulled the lion's teeth!

Jonah was a traveler with a awesome sense of scale,
He booked an Ocean passage on a transatlantic whale,
Jonah in the innards and the whale became distressed,
So the Captain pushed a button and the whale did the rest!

Sampson was a strong man from the John L Sullivan school,
He killed a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of a mule,
Then a woman named Delilah led Sampson into sin,
But Sampson grew his hair back and he pulled the temple in!
