Children – Pharaoh, Pharaoh lyrics

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.


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!

    There is a version I learnt at church that says "i saw a burning bush the other day,and god said to me i want you to walk this way. "
    Then it goes "well me and my people were going the red sea,so what do you think that i did see? I raised my staff and i cleared my throat,and all of pharoahs army did the dead man's float"
