So you wanna go back to egypt, where it's warm and secure.

Are you sorry you bought the one way ticket when you thought you were sure?

You wanted to live in the land of promise, but now it's getting so hard.

Are you sorry you're out here in the desert, instead of your own backyard?

Eating leeks and onions by the nile.

Ooh what breath, but dining out in style.

Ooh, my life's on the skids, give me the pyramids.

Well there's nothing to do but travel, and we sure travel a lot.

Cause it's hard to keep your feet from moving when the sand gets so hot.

And in the morning it's manna hotcakes.

We snack on manna all day.

And they sure had a winner last night for dinner,

Flaming manna soufflй.

Well we once complained for something new to munch.

The ground opened up and had some of us for lunch.

Ooh, such fire and smoke.

Can't God even take a jokeЎ­huh? Ў­.(no!)

So you wanna go back to egypt, where old friends wait for you.

You can throw a big party and tell the whole gang,

That what they said was all true.

And this moses acts like a big-shot, who does he think he is.

It's true that God works lots of miracles, but moses thinks they're all his.

Well I'm having so much trouble even now.

Why'd he get so mad about that cow, that golden cow.

Moses sits rather idle, he just sits around.

He just sits around and writes the bible.

Oh, moses, put down your pen.

WhatЎ­oh no, manna again?

Oh, manna wafflesЎ­. Manna burgers,

Manna bagels, fillet of manna,

Manna pattiesЎ­. Bamanna bread!
