10 000 Years Ago

I was born about ten thousand years ago,
And there's nothin' in the history I don't know;
I saw Peter, Paul and Moses,
Playing ring around the roses
And I wept the guy who says that isn't so.

I saw Satan when he looked the garden o'er,
I saw Eve and Adam driven from the door,
From behind the bushes peeping,
Well I saw the apple they were eating,
And I can prove they didn't ate the core.

Queen Elizabeth, she fell in love with me.
We were married in Milwaukee secretly,
Well I got there and shook her,
And all with General Hooker
And I can stay there down in Tennessee.
