The Lyrics

This song captures one of the stories in the Bible that not many people know. It's about Abraham and his wife Sarah, and some of the strange experiences they have in Egypt and Gerar, and even their son Isaac with his wife later. This song's a lot more understandable if you check it out in Scripture:Genesis 12:10-20; 20:1-18; 26:1-10
This is a song about what the king of Gerar did
A violent scare from the pain he started
Genesis 20, read it
And find it all out
He goes and steals a woman
But it's Abraham's spouse

That's my wife
She's my half sister
I ain't gonna live without her
I just wanna live with my own wife
(That's my wife)
The Lord will strike your home and wife and slaves
And then he's gonna leave them childless
If you're not gonna give me my own wife
That's my Wife

Genesis 12:10, they moved down south
A journey to Egypt, with a famine in town
Now Pharoah's eyeing Sarah
I hate to say
But he's really busted
When ol' Abraham says

That's my wife
Hands off my "sister"
I don't want you hitting on her
I just wanna live with my own wife
(That's my wife)
You did something the Lord and I hate
And Pharoah said, "Why did you lie to me?"
I just wanna live with my own wife
That's my wife

But that's not all, the story goes on
In Genesis 26, babe, like father like son

That's my wife
Don't rouse God's temper
You might as well just give her over
I just wanna live with my own wife
(That's my wife)
Without Rebekah I'm a heartache
How many laws did you just violate?
Isaac's gonna live with his own wife
That's Ike's wife

My only treasure
I ain't gonna give her over
I just wanna live with my own wife
(That's my wife)
I thought you learned back in your dad's day
But frankly not, I'll hit the highway
Isaac's gonna live with his own wife
That's my wife!
"So Pharaoh summoned Abram and accused him sharply. "What have you done to me?" he demanded. "Why didn't you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say, "She is my sister,' and allow me to take her as my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and get out of here!" " --Genesis 12:18-19
