Apologetix – Enemy Lines lyrics

Well, that Bathsheba girl is so gorgeous
I'd like to take her out on a date
But if you have your way with her, David
You will be making a grave mistake

Uriah's got Bathsheba - Uriah's got a wife
Uriah is a soldier
So she's alone in her home tonight
Uriah's got Bathsheba - Uriah's gone to fight
Uriah isn't home yet
So I'll be holding her close tonight

She told him, David, I'm havin' your baby
And when my husband returns he'll learn
They had to keep it a secret from him
There was a plot and they both got burned
So they took Uriah out of the army
For some furlough time with Bathshebe
But he was waiting till war was over
To lay with his wife and go to sleep

Uriah's got Bathsheba - Uriah's got a wife
Uriah's got a problem
'Cause there's adultery in David's life
Uriah's got Bathsheba - Uriah's got to die
Uriah doesn't know yet
So put him close to the battle line

Enemy lines! Enemy lines!
Enemy lines! Enemy lines!

Uriah's got Bathsheba - Uriah's got a wife
Uriah's got a widow
And she's the mother of David's child
Uriah got defeated - Uriah got to die
Uriah got mixed up in
The tragic hold of adult'ry's lies

2 Samuel 11:15
And he wrote in the letter, saying, "Set Uriah in
The forefront of the hottest battle, and retreat
From him, that he may be struck down and die."
