Oh, how these kids loved this song! The boy in the back is well taller than me now, and the boy on the front left pointed it out the other day. Just to get back at him, I pointed out that he was not! 😏
Well a burnin’ bush told me just the other day
That I should come over here and stay
Got to get God’s people out of Pharaoh’s hand.
And lead them out to the promised land.
Pharaoh, Pharaoh Woa-o
Let my people go!
Yea, Yea, Yea, Yea, Yea... (repeat chorus)
So me and God’s people going to the Red Sea
Pharaoh’s army comin’ after me.
I raised my rod, stuck it in the sand
And all God’s children walked on the dry land
Well, Old Pharaoh’s army was a comin’ too.
So what did you think that I did do?
I raised my rod and I cleared my throat
And Pharaoh’s army did the dead man’s float.
