Pharaoh, Pharaoh


CHORUS: Pharaoh, Pharaoh, whoa baby, let my people go! (2x).

A burnin' bush told me just the other day
That I should go to Egypt and say,
"It's time to let my people be free -
Listen to God if you won't listen to me!'.


Well me and and my people goin' to the Red Sea,
With Pharaoh's best army comin' after me.
I took my staff, stuck it in the stand,
And all of God's people walked on dry land.
Singin. .


Now Pharaoh's army was a-comin' too,
So whattaya think that God did do?
Had me take my staff and clear my throat,
And all of Pharaoh's army did the dead man's float.


Well that's the story of the stubborn goat.
Pharaoh should've know that chariots don't float.
The lesson is simple, it's easy to find,
When God says, "GO!' you had better mind!

I think i have heard the story of this poem, where the pharaoh lead his army through a dry river and the river flooded with them in it. Or something like that. Anyway it was really delightful.
