The Lyrics

Chosen children, Bible story,
Stones were written long ago.
Moses brings down from a mountain,
Two stone tablets you all know.
From that mountain God will measure,
How you keep the Word He's shown.
As they rally people swore,
Away one life will now be thrown.

Out there in the heat they labor,
Out there in the heat they sweat,
What about this bread unlevened?
Why can't we just-a buy some real bread?
Did Moses hear the trumpets blowin',
Over putz's brays.
Took forty years there after,
Why does Moses take all day?

Lots of people formed a rally,
Asked the lawmen on the hill.
We would like a brand new measure,
Stones of gold say "DO NOT KILL"!
Seems the answer was opinion,
High court orders came to bear.
No more feeding plug the fountain,
Dies by inches lying there.

Out there in the heat they labor,
Out there in the heat they sweat,
What about this bread unlevened?
Why can't we just-a buy some real bread?
Did Moses hear the trumpets blowin',
Over putz's brays.
Took forty years there after,
Why does Moses take all day?

Those that rallied cried with anger,
Mountin' forces,
Hear Thy Word!
They will kill infirm and feeble,
All God's laws will be ignored.
Those that stood up God will measure,
Will their day of judgement dread?
Read the stone don't look beneath it,
I give birth,
I call the dead.

Out there in the heat they labor,
Out there in the heat they sweat,
What about this bread unlevened?
Why can't we just-a buy some real bread?
Did Moses hear the trumpets blowin',
Over putz's brays.
Took forty years there after,
Why does Moses take all day?

Out there in the heat they labor,
Out there in the heat they sweat,
What about this bread unlevened?
Why can't we just-a buy some real bread?
Did Moses hear the trumpets blowin',
Over putz's brays.
Took forty years there after,
Why does Moses take all day?

Yahweh's prescription for His stiff-necked people: two tablets and forty years of desert-aerobics.

Not to mention half a century of Heston acting in real life as if he thought he WAS Moses.
