Apologetix – I've Got Elijah Fightin' Baal lyrics

[Parody of "I've Got A Tiger By The Tail" by Buck Owens]

I've got Elijah fightin' Baal it's plain to see
I know I ain't much, but you-know-Who's with me
You choose your way, but you'll learn, and I won't fail
And it looks like I've got Elijah fightin' Baal
Well, I talked to Ahab when he was the King of the land
Said it's time to make you understand
Bring all your false prophets up to Mt. Car(a)mel
Now it looks like I've got Elijah fightin' Baal
Well, I said, Let's have a contest to call fire from the sky
You go first, and then I'll have a try

Well, 450 prophets cried out to no avail
Now, it looks like I've got Elijah fightin' Baal
Well, they cried to Baal all day; it didn't do them no good
I poured 12 barrels of water on the wood
And I cried out, Lord please prove today you're God of Israel
Please prove I'm right with fire from the air
I got the fire from the air; it came for me
It burned up everything immediately
Well, 1 Kings Chapter 18 tells the tale
In the Book called the Bible -- Elijah fightin' Baal
