Stay With Me

(Lewis Franco & The Missing Cats)

This one combines the Noah's ark flood and the Hurricane Katrina flood.

The jungle floor may tremble and the flocks may disassemble
when the elephants are marching on their way
the monkeys all go treeing and the wildebeasts go fleeing
but don't forget about the ones who just stay
 
the lions stay to battle when the antelopes skedaddle
yet the king of beasts will turn and run some day
and in their mad retreat they do not notice at their feet
that there are those who have no choice except to stay
 
I'll stay right here, although my heart is pounding 
with fear; When you cannot run you learn how to stay
I'll stay where I am, and I know I'm in a jam
So I'm telling you truly, it would mean so much if you stay with me
 
The powerful and wealthy are suddenly unhealthy
The king is not protected by his castle or his moat
And we in the animal kingdom with songs unsung must sing them
And like it or not we are all in the same boat
 
I'll stay right here, although my heart is pounding 
with fear; When you cannot run you learn how to stay
I'll stay where I am, and I know I'm in a jam
So I'm telling you truly, it would mean so much if you stay with me
I'm telling you truly, it would mean so much if you stay with me
