The Lyrics

The following is the story of Moses in its entirety, freeing the slaves of Israel from Egypt, and parting the Red Sea. You don't have to be a Bible fan to read this.
In the ancient days, about B.C.
Mankind up and went and forgot itself
Egyptians got on their high horse
Decided to give the Hebrews hell

Anything Hebrew was a slave
Hard bondage as stone is yanked around
Whip at the back, o-a-o
Hebrews are thought lower than the ground

Pharaoh's men crackin whips say
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Walk Like an Egyptian!

Ramses I better look out, beware, old man
Better watch your back
Somebody's going to destroy
Your Kingdom and they won't cut any slack

Male hebrew, son, a firstborn
His name does not ring a bell
Ramses I, o-a-o
Kills all firstborn males in Israel

All soldiers killin' babies they say
Way-o-way-o-way-o-wayo
Walk like an Egyptian!

Hebrews waist up, River Nile
Basket sailin down with newborn son
Pharaoh's pool, Bithiah and her girls
Are swimmin' about, havin' fun

Bithiah lost her man long ago
And she wants a kid of her own
Basket comes in o-a-o
Son all for her, heir to the throne

Moses, that's what she's gonna name him
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Moses the Egyptian!

**instrumental**

Moses grew up to be a prince
Flower petals a rainin everywhere
Ramses is green o-a-o
Pop Sethi just doesn't seem to care

Ramses, Moses brother wants the crown
Determined to also get the girl
Sethi says no way o-a-o
Ramses, you don't exactly rule the world

Ramses gonna take it all from Moses
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
King of the Egyptians!

Nefertiri fallin in love
Moses is the only man she likes
Moses gonna rule o-a-o
She fights tooth and nail to be his wife

Sethi hears about a hebrew slave
Gonna up and bring egyptians down
Sethi says yo Ramses o-a-o
You grab the guy then you bring him round

Hebrew hero gonna pay now
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
No one messes with the Egyptians

Nefertiri lend me your ear
Your servant's got something to confide
Your groom to be o-a-o
He isn't an egyptian guy

Long ago Ramses number one, his sis
Adopted a kid, don't rant and rave
You might as well know o-a-o
He's low as dust, he's a hebrew slave

Tiri, diva, whatcha gonna do now?
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
He's not an egyptian

Moses finda out from girlfriend and mom
His mother is called Yochabel
His family o-a-o
They've up and been put through years of hell

Gotta say goodbye for awhile
Hang out with all the hebrew slaves
Watch em work to death o-a-o
Excuse me while I go gather clay

Hear the hebrew slaves a moanin'
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Watch out for egyptians!

Gather straw, chop clay and then churn
The clay and straw into mud for bricks
Credit is none o-a-o
Egyptians make all the hebrews sick

Tiri says hey Moses what's up
Hangin out with the hebrews, really wack!
Lower than the dust o-a-o
You're my loverboy, I want you back

Moses says adios to Tiri
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
I'm not an Egyptian

**instrumental**

Moses saves a slave when he's caught
Savin' his girl from sexual shame
Joshua says o-a-o
Deliverer! Moses is his name!

Gotta go, but Moses is busted
Rameses, Dathan, got the chains
Sethi says hey Moses o-a-o
Auf Wiedersehn, we don't know your name

Tiri doesn't want Rameses for her man
Yo Moses, I'm not gonna kill you, see
You'd be alive in her mind after you died
If you're alive she belongs to me

Chuck you out to the desert, see ya!
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
You're not an egyptian!

Moses stranded in the burning heat
He's headed for Midian
He's lonely, sand tears his skin
Water evaporates in the wind

He has no food, finally
He bumps into women in a camp
Sheik of Midian he's their dad
He gets to choose a bride as they dance

Sephora says God's on Sinai
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
God of the Hebrews

**instrumental**

Moses wants to chitchat with God
Hebrews are gettin upset
They're tired of o-a-o
Walkin like the egyptian set

Moses gotta free all the slaves
Wife and bro Aaron back in town
Ramses dig this o-a-o
Gimme hebrews or plagues are comin round

Ramses let my people go now
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
My people are hebrews

Nile's turned to blood
Locusts flies and gnats
And then tons and tons o' frogs
Plagues killin folks o-a-o
Meat, water gone, citizens dead as dogs

Ramses ain't gonna let the people go
Days with no sun, he don't see the light
Blood marks the doors
Firstborn gonna croak in the night

Moses celebrates Passover, baby
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Death to the egyptians!

Rameses says pack it up and go
Hebrews are free fre at last Josh and Lily gone o-a-o
Hebrews don't even think of comin back

Headin for the sea
Moses says hold on God's gonna come around
Blast from his nose o-a-o
Red Sea splits, Hebrews got some ground

Hebrews diggin the water walls now
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Walk like a hebrew!

**instrumental**

Ramses heads out to the sea
Moses in for a huge bloody brawl
Red Sea caves in o-a-o
Survivors deceased, survivors all

Hebrews camp out Moses up Sinai
Hebrews are impatient where is he?
Dathan says hey o-a-o
We'll make up a god we can see

Hebrews goin up a creek now
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Jam like a Hebrew

Sex drugs and drink, crimes galore
Commandments broke 'fore they're even writ'
Moses saw ten commandemts made
Follow commandments cause they're it

Don't steal or lie or sex around
Worship only me and don't take my name in vain
And all the rest o-a-o
Give em to the folks or give em pain

Moses sees melee down beneath him
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Jam like a hebrew

Blasphemers! Idolaters!
You've gotta up and lose the golden cow
We can't do that o-a-o
You who don't, boy, you're gonna die and how

Hebrews love God, Josh and Seph are swingin
And they're gonna serve the Lord
Moses, you rock, o-a-o
Cause we're not in Egypt anymore

Hebrews party, party hardy
Way-o-way-o-way-o-way-o
Party like a Hebrew

Absolutely BLESSED by God's 'talents' that are far better than temporal riches. Keep up the great work for the One that gave you that talent...
