This is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah
Two cites tha-at were full of hatred and lu-ust
Because their ties were great, because of all their lu-ust
The Lord decided destructio-ion was a mu-u-u-ust

This is what he said:
Give me (give me-ee) 50 good men (just give me 50 good me-e-en)
And I'll (and I-I-I'll) spare the whole city (and I'll spare the whole city-y)
Give me 40 good men, to destroy you a-a-all would be a pi-i-ity

Oh-oh-oh-oh, Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah) Sodom and Gomorrah
Cities with one man you can trust (cities with one man you can trust)
Sodom and Gomorrah, Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah)
Cities full of hatred and lust (cities full of hatred and lust)
Sodom and Gomorrah (yeah) Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah)
Judgement day is very close by (judgement day is very close by)
Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah) Sodom and Gomorrah
The flames will reach up high to the sky (high to the sky)

God sent two angels to Sodom and Gommorah
They were met by Lot who bowed to the grou-ound
They went into his ho-o-ome, before they could knock down
The wicked men of Sodom gathered rou-ou-ou-ound

Here's what the angel said:
Give me (give me-ee-ee) 30 good men (just give me 30 good men)
And I'll (and I-I-I'll) spare the whole city (and I'll spare the whole city-y)
Give me 20 good men, to destroy you a-a-all would be a pi-i-ity-y

Oh-oh-oh-oh, Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah) Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah)
Cities with one man you can trust (cities with one man you can trust)
Sodom and Gomorrah (yeah) Sodom and Gomorrah (Sodom and Gomorrah)
Cities full of hatred and lust (cities full of hatred and lust)
Sodom and Gomorrah (yeah) Sodom and Gomorrah (Sod
