The Lyrics

This is another of my Biblical parodies. I was inspired by TJC and his "My Favourite Mings", and I thought I could also try something similar.
First for ten tribes was first Jeroboam
His son Nadab was slain by Baasha -
Woe-o, Kings of Israelites!

Baasha was wicked and succeeded by Elah -
General Zimri slew him outright -
Woe-o, Kings of Israelites

Who were they loyal for?

Week after rose dynasty of Omri,
Ahab ruled a super-power -
Woe-o, Kings of Israelites

Ahaziah, Jezebel, Jehoram, then Jehu -
Joahaz ruled seventeen years
Woe-o, kings of Israelites

Cruel king, the Israelite.
I wonder how they survived.
Poor the, Israelite,
soon came the down-a-fall, sir

Jehoash he ruled at the time of Elijah,
Jeroboam second loved golden calf
Woe-o, kings of Israelites

Zacariah, then Shallum, Menachem, Pekaiah
Pekah pissed off the Assyrians -
Woe-o, kings of Israelites

The last and the worst of them all was Hoshea
He led kingdom on its final downfall
Woe-o, kings of Israelites

So this was the sad story of kings of ten tribes -
all them vanished and so long gone -
Woe-o, kings of Israelites

More people should read the bible and your parodies. But they got to feel de musik man. before de kan jam. Hey here's a parody idea: Lady in red by Chris Deburg. Make it Lady in Dreads. I'd do it myself but I don't know enough about Jamaican culture. 5's
