Anteater
Parody of "Maneater" by Hall & Oates
(Genesis 2:19-20)

You know that poor Adam tried
He named a hundred types
Nothing he viewed he'd seen or heard before
Watching and waiting
Like a kid in a zoo
Of surprises from the Lord

Some animals came, you see
Ducks and pigs and geckos and fleas
The wolf and the cow, the sheep and elephant, the worm and jaguar
Monkeys and rabbits
But he didn't know what to make of what next he saw

Oh, here she comes
What's that, boy? Go cue it up
Oh, here she comes
She's an anteater
Oh, here she comes
What's that, boy? Go cue it up
Oh, here she comes
She's an anteater

She wouldn't devour you
Or those who eat ants, too
But she's death to ants
And she could really rip their world apart
Find her an anthill
Ooh, her food is in there
And the feast begins to start

Oh, here she comes
What's that, boy? Go cue it up
Oh, here she comes
She's an anteater
Oh, here she comes
What's that, boy? Go cue it up
Oh, here she comes
She's an anteater
SAX SOLO

Oh, here she comes (Here she comes)
What's that, boy? Go cue it up
Oh, (here she comes) (What's that?)
She's an anteater
Oh, (here she comes) (She's an anteater)
Ooh ooh, so true you are
Oh, here she comes
Here she comes -- she's an anteater
Oh, here she comes (What's that?)
I know they'll pronounce it right ooh ooh
Oh, here she comes
Here she comes -- she's an anteater oh oh
Oh, here she comes (She's an anteater)
Just look at the snout whooo!
Oh, here she comes
Here she comes
What's that boy? What's that boy?
Oh, here she comes
Ohhh, what's that? What's that? What's that? What's that?
Oh, here she comes Yeah heh (What's that?)
An Anteater
Oh, here she comes (She's an anteater)
What should we name it? Woo ohh
Oh, here she comes
Ohhh, she's an anteater!

Genesis 2:19
Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the
birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them;
and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.
