Larry Norman – Moses In The Wilderness lyrics

Moses tending sheep in the fields one day
He thought he heard a burning scrub-brush say
Gotta free your people
From the pharoah's hand
Gotta take em all to the promised land

Moses knew that god was taking to him
So he set off to egypt with a vigor and vim
And moses bugged the pharoah - he bugged him
And he bugged him
Till he got his people free

He used real bugs

Yes indeed
He got his people freed

Moses on banks of the wide red sea
Stuck out a stick and one two three
The water rolled back and the people walked down
Everybody knew they wouldn't drown
Pharoah told his army to bring em all back
And here comes the chariots clickety clack
Why moses took his stick
And he closed up the water
And the gyptians all took a bath

What a laugh

They all took a bath

Dirty gyptians

Grab my foot take my hand
Lead me on to the promised land
Milk and honey milk and honey
Milk and honey milk and honey

Me and all my people is here
So keep on sending manna
From the atmosphere

Milk and honey milk and honey
Milk and honey milk and honey

After forty long years in the wilderness
They finally saw their potential metropolis
They all gave thanks
And they all praised the lord
Even though it took time he kept his word
He grab their foot and he took their hand
And he brung em all over
To the promised land
But it seems to me
Like an awful long time to be
Looking for a home

A mighty long roam
Looking for a home

Never borrow money needlessly
