"I Was Born (A Unicorn)" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
DIAMONDS
I was born a unicorn
I missed the ark but I could've sworn you'd wait for me

GINGER
I was born a unicorn
I could of sworn you believed in me.
Then how come all the other Unicorns are dead?

DIAMONDS
Put your crystal's under my pillow
GINGER
Send your epistle to my bedfellows

DIAMONDS
If I stop believing in you
GINGER
If you stop believing in me
DIAMONDS
If I stop believing in you
GINGER
If you stop believing in me

We're the Unicorns,
We're more than horses,
We're the unicorns,
And we're people too!

    General CommentI don't think The Unicorns have any "really deep meaning" behind their songs....I think they just have fun with their music...I think that it's pretty obvious.

    General Comment"i missed the ark but I could've sworn you'd wait for me"

    Well, supposedly the reason we have the species of animals we have today is because Noah took them on his ark, and he forgot the unicorns, so maybe that's why we don't see unicorns too often these days.
