The Lyrics

If you don't know what I'm talking about, go read your bible... Exodus
Here we stand in Sinai
Mr Moses won't you tell us "Why?"
Now we've fled Egypt, right
Maybe Pharaoh's feeling pissed tonight, but

Nothing here to eat at all
Our escape out of Egypt'll stall
Nowt but desert round us all
Now you tell us that
Some manna'll fall

Oh forty nights, and forty days
What? Forty years in this miserable place?
You raise your hands, and you pray
You still say we can depend on YHVH

Golden calf - let's worship Baal
Ten commandments might just cover it all
Moses gonna rant & snarl
You know it's time for some manna to fall

Burning bushes, tablets
Tell the truth, it sounds insane
But now he's gotta go up mountain
Sinai again
First couple o' tablets were in vain...

For we who worshipped golden calf
Pissed off Moses - he broke tablets in half
Annoyed we disregard god's word
He went back and got another, another, 'nother

What the hell d'we argue for?
YHWH's judgment may just do for us all
You just got time to say your prayers
While your waiting for the manna to manna to fall

It's gonna fall
Manna.. yum yum! Manna.. hey!
While you're waiting for some manna to fall


Give it to me one more time

Amen.

I always thought it was grossly unfair of YHWH not to let Moses into the Promised Land simply b/c he struck a rock twice- he just got to see it from afar before he died and then we have that dispute between Satan and Michael the Archangel over where the body was buried!!!

I don't know much about the Bible, being of agnostic religion, but here is how I think it went, Moses when he was a young man, got into a fight with a Roman guard, and ended up knocking him to the ground and up against a rock, killing him, he then went on to not repent for this, and that may have been what cost him his entry into the Promised Land. This is not based on what I know, just what I've overheard from others. But back to this parody, Excellent job on it Phil! You seem to know a lot more than I do about the subject matter! I will "Promise" to "Land" three 5's unto you. :-)

Wild Child JIN, Moses killed an Egyptian overseer but later led several million Hebrew slaves over 40 yrs to the Promised Land which was then Canaan. Moses and Aaron were not allowed into that land due to two things: Moses credited himself with bringing the water from the rock and Aaron was not permitted for his part in the making of the Golden Calf and the rebellion earlier. Also: "Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, 'Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me [proclaim my name holy] in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.' " (Numbers 20:12) BTW, the Hebrew Slaves also occasionally ate quail on their trek...

Rob Arndt: Thanks for clearing that up for me, I feel like I'm in Bible school now. ;-)
