Big Wooden Boat by Jonah Mitchell

As his frequent tweets suggest, Ken Ham is very excited about his 4000 space parking lot at the Ark Encounter. Given his obsession with Genesis 1-11 and Creation, it seemed another sweet irony that Ham paved paradise and put up a parking lot. So, it also seemed fitting that I adapt Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi.

Big Wooden Boat*

*To the tune of Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi

Ham built an Ark
And put up a parking lot
With a restaurant,
animal kinds,
and a nifty gift shop.

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what they’ve got
Til you’ve gone
Ham built an Ark
And put up a parking lot

They made Adam & Eve
Put ’em in a Creation Museum
And they charged God’s people
Thirty Dollars just to see ’em

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Til it’s gone
Ham built an Ark
And put up a parking lot

Hey Ham, Hey Ham
Start learning to read, now
Give me Jesus & the gospel
But leave me the cosmos & biology
Please!

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what they teach
Til you’ve gone
Ham built an Ark
And put up a parking lot

Early this morning
I heard someone quote Ken Ham
And a big wooden boat
Took away all my friends

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know that they’re caught
Til they’re gone
Ham built an Ark
And put up a parking lot

Ham paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Ham paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
