Genesis: Chapter Two

So the heavens and the earth
Were more just than given birth
They were replete, totally complete,
Yes indeed, it was a monumental feat.

So it was day seven
And God said like a little taste of heaven
Will I make this day
This after all is my way
My work is done,
Let's have some fun.
This is not a test,
It's time for some rest.

So God said to day Seven,
Give everyone a taste of heaven
For you are a holy day,
Because on you it was in rest that I did stay.

So that my friend is creation's song.
To not be reflecting on this, well that be just plain wrong

So now I'm going to tell you the story again,
So it may just stick into your brain.
This is the story of the heavens and the earth,
How God created them and gave them birth,
Listen up now and hear the words
Block you ears and you be just nerds.

This was when there were no shrubs, no plants,
The earth she be barren, empty even of ants.
This was because God had never sent rain
And there was no one to work the plain.
But from another source water was found of course
Streams came from out of the earths crust,
Watering the ground, bringing life to dry dust

Then God, the Lord of Heaven and earth,
Created something of great worth,
He formed a man from a handful of mere dust,
And into this sculpture, his life giving breath he thrust.
And awake, alive,
A being did rise.
From the hand and breath of God man was created, made,
He was mere dust but with the ultimate upgrade.

Now God had himself the best place on the planet,
A garden of beauty and full of life not made of granite.
He called it Eden, and it was in the East,
It was a place to rest, to love God, to live life and in it feast.

The Lord God, he made the garden a visual delight,
With trees that were perfect to see, and full of fruit to bite.
Smack bang in the centre of it all.
Two trees stood very proud and very tall,
One of these was the tree of life,
The other was destined to cause more strife
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil its name
It is known well and has its share of fame.
There was a river flowing from out of Eden
Twisting its way through the garden,
Into four ways it did split,
The water to its course did submit.

The first was the Pishon, winding through the land of Havilah,
Located there be gold, oh year bring on the moolah.
The gold in that place be really grand,
You want to touch it, grab it with your hand.
Onyx is also all about,
In good supply there is no doubt.

The second then was Gihon, it winds its way through Cush,
There's plenty of time, you can just float, no need to push.

The third is the Tigris, running on the east of Ashur,
Running quite quickly through, a bit of a dasher

The fourth river, the one which is listed last,
The Euphrates, arguably the best known of this cast

God took the man he had made,
Put him in the garden where he then stayed.
God said to him,
With surely a little grin,
Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to work you go,
And he explained the rules all just so.
Look after this place,
Be good to this space,
Eat from any tree you like,
This is not the place for a hunger strike
The Fruit it's all yours,
With the exception of the one, that will cause wars.
I'm talking about the tree with the knowledge of good and evil,
It's about as good for you as feasting on a decomposed weevil.
Don't go there, don't eat it. Not even for a snack,
Or your life will be over, from that there is no coming back.
You will not be sitting resting forever in the sweet by and by,
My friend, have no doubt, you will surely die.

Now God said, this is not so good,
For this man to be alone, that's understood,
So I will make someone for him,
To be his soul mate his helper, for the win,

So from out of the ground God made animals wild,
And birds, to fly in the sky, to glide.
He took them to the man,
And said here's the plan.
Name these, tell me what you think they should be called
Whatever you say, that name will be installed.

Let's get chillin’ with Dylan:-
So man, gave names to all the animals,
In the beginning, in the beginning,
Man gave names to all the animals,
In the beginning, long time ago.

But for Adam, by the way the man's actual name, 
Being the first man, was his claim to fame,
For him, of all the creatures from the ground,
Not a single soul mate could be found.

So God made Adam have a deep sleep,
And from out of him, a rib he did keep,
He closed up the hole,
And made it whole,
And made a woman from the rib,
And took her to Adam's crib

Adam could have had a nasty fright,
But no way, he was filled with delight,
You and me may have said Hubba Hubba!!
But Adam was more eloquent learning from his Abba.

Adam said she's part of me, my bones my flesh,
When we are together we will mesh,
She will be called woman,
Cos she came out of man

So if you ever wondered why a man left his folks,
And stopped hanging out with all of the other blokes,
Read this above, it shows how man and woman become one,
United together for the long run

Adam and his wife, she be called Eve
Were naked but that was not a concept they could perceive,
They did not spend time in worry and grieve,
To the Lord God and each other they did cleave.
