Pharaoh Pharaoh

from What Kind Of Cat Are You?!

PHARAOH, PHARAOH! OH, BABY, LET MY PEOPLE GO!
UNH! YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!

A burning bush told Moses just the other day
that he should go to the Pharaoh and say
It's time to let the slaves be free;
listen to God if you won't listen to me!

Moses and the slaves went to the Red Sea
with Pharaoh's best army coming quickly
Moses took his rod and struck it in the sand
and all those slaves walked on dry land!

That's the story of the stubborn goat
Pharaoh should have known that a chariot won't float
The answer is simple, it's easy to find :
when it's time to free the slaves, you had better mind!
