Larry Norman — Moses In the Wilderness lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Moses In the Wilderness" 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 pharoah’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 pharoah — he bugged him
and he bugged him
till he got his people free
he used real bugs
yes indeed
he got his people freed
moses on banks of the wide red sea
stuck out a stick and one two three
the water rolled back and the people walked down
everybody knew they wouldn’t drown
pharoah 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 gyptians all took a bath
what a laugh
they all took a bath
dirty gyptians
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 grab 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
a mighty long roam
looking for a home
never borrow money needlessly
