Moses In The Wilderness
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Moses tending sheep in the fields one day He thought he heard a burning scrub-brush say Gotta free your people From the Pharaoh's hand Gotta take' em all to the Promised Land. Moses knew that God was taking to him So he set off to Egypt with a vigor and vim And Moses bugged the Pharaoh And bugged him and bugged him 'Till he got his people free. He used real bugs Yes indeed, ow, ow! He got his people freed, ow, ow,ow... ow! Ow, ow, ow, ow! Moses on banks of the wide red sea He stuck out a stick and one, two, three The water rolled back and the people walked down Everybody knew they wouldn't drown Pharaoh told his army to bring 'em all back and... Here comes the chariots, clickety clack Why Moses took his stick And he closed up the water and... The Egyptians all took a bath. Aw, aw, aw, aw! What a laugh How they all took a bath Aw, aw, aw, aw Aw, aw, aw, aw Dirty Egyptians. Grab my foot, take my hand Lead me on to the Promised Land Milk and honey, milk and honey Milk and honey, milk and honey Me and all my people is here So keep on sending manna From the atmosphere. Milk and honey, milk and honey Milk and honey, milk and honey. After forty long years in the wilderness They finally saw their potential metropolis They all gave thanks And they all praised the Lord Even though it took time, He kept his Word He grabbed their foot and He took their hand And He brung 'em all over To the Promised Land But it seems to me Like an awful long time To be looking for a home. Aw, aw, aw, aw! A mighty long roam Home, looking for a home Home, home. Never borrow money needlessly!
