The Lyrics

I led the Jews today, oh boy
Up to this mount - I think it's "Cyanide"
And oh the Jews were rather bad
But I just raised my sta-aff
And smashed their golden ca-alf

It blew my mind, that hand of God
I never knew he wore a pinkie ring
The crowd was read his new Top Ten
They sure complained a lot
Nobody was really sure if they'd obey one Thou Shalt Not

I saw a plague today, oh boy
The Egypt army, smacked with bugs and frogs
The cows and people puked all day
But I just held my nose
Said: Yo Pha-ra-ohhhh
Dude let my

[An awesome sonic crescendo orchestrates the even awesomer parting of the Red Sea.]

[Then an alarm clock jars Moses into this flashback:]

Got born
Got near erased
Rode the Nile - a basket case
Found by Pharaoh's daughter, what a shock
I learned to walk
Like an Egyp-ti-an (heh heh heh heh)

I was Prince, but whacked a creep
Jumped my bail, moved in with sheep
Stayed for forty years there, holy smoke
A burning bush spoke
And I thought I'd gone insane:

Free the SLA-a-a-aves..."


I led the Jews today - oy vey -
Right through a hole; the Red Sea disappeared
The armies came and it refilled
We'll test their swimming skill
Best of all, the lot was caught on tape by Cecil B. DeMille

I'd love to

[Moses counts the commandments to make sure they're all still there.]

[The parting of the Red Sea is such a crowd pleaser that the scene is repeated here.
(No, it's not parted twice in the Bible, but this is Hollywood.)
At the peak of the sea-parting crescendo, the water walls fall in on the Egyptian army to the sound of a final, sustained chord.]

[And there is much rejoicing.]

Cecil B. DeMille, eat your heart out. (Since he's been dead a long time, the insects and maggots may have already done that for him. :D)
Peter Andersson - June 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Favorite Line: "Like an Egyp-ti-an (heh heh heh heh)". It's really more like panting in TOS, isn't it?

Kristof: I was told in school that the 11:th commandment was "thou shall not masturbate or I will kill a kitten". I'm sure there's a parody about sporicide/genocide of biblical proportions in that one, but I've already written myself a seat reservation at the Purgatory Bowl so I'll leave that one for you petty sinners.

Oops! That didn't really come out the way I intended, which was to imply that I might, I say might, have qualified for Purgatory in other ways (than that particular one) than such petty sinners. =8-()

Great choice, Spaff. Good knowledge of the source material, some great lines (walk like an egyptian, basket case & Cecil). Now for some reason I have Keith Green's "So you wanna go back to Egypt" in my head...

Peter - I'm not holding you responsible for any kitten deaths...but your "11th Commandment" note did bring on the imagery, in a comic rather than grotesque fashion...don't worry, I shan't be haunted nightmares of this...and IF I am, it will all be Spaff's fault anyway ~ ~ ~

Paul: Considering the explanation of the word spaff we have been given I don’t think an exodusmosis imagery of kittens raining on puppies are to far fetched here. :-)

So the words spoken by the Prophet Edmund were fulfilled: "The Pharoah wired in he had water coming in..." Not to mention the words of the Prophet Charlton: "Pharoah, the only way you're going to get my staff is to pry it from my cold, dead hands!" This is a parody of epic, nay, biblical proportions. Woe unto he who giveth this not five.

RAD: I think the quote was "bigger than Ruth." Really pissed off the feminists.

P-Rob: Yeah, I pretty much took it verbatim from the book of Exodus. I'm expecting an infringement lawsuit from the estate of Moses.

Ricksy: That explains the carpal tunnel.

Jonathan: Heh heh.

PeterCHYD: Speaking of panting, way to implicate yourself there.

Ralphing Luke: "Hang in there - even Moses was once a basket case." I saw that on one of those sickeningly sweet wooden wall decorations in one of those sickeningly sweet craft stores. I had blocked it out but it un-blocked itself, unfortunately, while I was writing this.

Stevenagh: Hmmm...Never heard of that one. I'll see if I can track it down.

Michaelopedia: "Whoa!" unto THEE for thy uncanny ability to turn everything into either an Edmund Fitzgerald reference or a political rant. Or, better yet, both.

(sotm) erudite or well-researched, or both? Your parodies have so much unexpected detail, Spaff - maybe to provide a backdrop for your procession of witty subject-related gags? - I dunno, but the whole style works a treat, and this is one of your funniest and cleverest - and an OS that I know!!! applause again for the lines I mentioned last time and an extra guffaw for the "Thou Shalt Not" line
Phil Alexander - July 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Spaff - you may say it's no "Anal Vice", but I have a bit of a penchant for (sac)religious parodies, and this hits the spot perfectly.

Hey Spaff, as far as the recordings I liked Wandering Bytes better, but only when the sound bites were really relevent to the material. The vocal and mix were better. But I also need to add there was a little too much clutter of bites in the final chord, too...sample more of the Ten Commandments movie. - October 04, 2005 - Report this comment
