Song Lyric Sunday: Animal

“The Unicorn Song” was written in 1968 by Shel Silverstein and originally recorded by the Irish Rovers. It’s an adorable song, and it’s chock full of animals as befitting Jim’s theme. It certainly explains why we don’t see any unicorns today.

  2. This song sure has a lot of animals, but those unicorns were remarkable swimmers and I heard that a few of them made it.

  3. Walk into any Irish pub on the South Side of Chicago on any given night, you’re bound to hear this one…

  5. One cannot simply listen to this song. One is compelled to sing along. Great choice!

  6. Didn’t know it was written by Shel, but looking at the lyrics, it makes sense. Love this song!

  8. I so love this song! The Rovers had a pub on the 1986 Vancouver Expo grounds and it stayed there for a couple of years after the fair was over. I worked for the government on the site and on Friday nights we would usually head over for a couple of plates of nachos and pitchers of Long Island Ice Tea (neither of which are particularly Irish). They had other bands in but tried to play at least one weekend a month and of course this was the most requested song!
