The Lyrics

Confused? See Genesis 9:18-27. That is not a Phil Collins catalogue number.
He’s ornery ingrate that Ham
Ornery ingrate that Ham he am
Pop got blotto on the vintage he poured
Then unwarried fell unrobed on floor
A trech’ry son was that Hammery (perved on he)
Ya coulda trusted Japheth or that Shem. Amen!
He disgraced old man, did Hammery
Hammery’s a pain, he am

Soon be worse, Ham is accursed!

He’s ornery ingrate that Ham
Ornery ingrate that Ham he am
Noah tarried with his ferment’ry store
Both Ham’s brothers covered him on floor
Respectful some of his progeny (Godily)
He ‘cluded “two of three be not too bad” (did Dad)
Did berate bold Ham, condemn-ed he
Scorned as reprobate was Ham

He’s ornery ingrate that Ham
Ornery ingrate that Ham he am
It got hairy when this kiddo vexed poor
Drunk, bare daddy - severed fil’al door
So Noah done for that ornery (didn’t he?)
He curs-ed little Hammy and his clan (whole clan!)
Was irate, old man, with Ham was he
When he see’d his naked dad

Ham He Am Orn Rye
Ornery (Ben-awry)
Ornery (Ben-awry)
Ornery ingrate that Ham he am
Ornery ingrate that Ham

Damned!
