Well, Eve told Adam
Snakes? I've had 'em!
Let's get outta here
Go raise this family someplace outta town

They left the garden just in time
With the landlord cussin' right behind
They headed East,
And they finally settled down

One thing led to another:
A bunch of sons, one killed his brother
And they kicked him out with nothin' but his clothes

And the human race survived
'Cause all those brothers found wives
But where they came from
Ain't nobody knows

Then came the flood, go figure
Just like New Orleans, only bigger.
No one who couldn't swim would make it through

The lucky ones were on a boat
Think 'circus' and then make it float
And hope nobody pulls the plug on you

How they fed that crowd is a mystery
It ain't down in the history
But it's a cinch they didn't
Live on cakes and jam

Lions don't eat cabbage
And in spite of that old adage
I ain't never seen one
Lie down with a lamb

Well, Charlie Darwin looked so far
Into the way things are.
He caught a glimpse of God's
Unfolding plan

God said: "I'll make some DNA
They can use it any way they want
From paramecium
Right up to man"

"They'll have sex
And mix up sections of their code
They'll have mutations
The whole thing works like clockwork over time"

"I'll just sit back in the shade
While everyone gets laid
That's what I call
Intelligent design"

Yeah, you and your cat named Felix,
Both wrapped up in that double helix
Is what we call
Intelligent design.
