  2. 2. Cain and Abel (verse 2) I go to work, I teach about Cain and Abel, Some say it really happened, some say it’s just a fable, It doesn’t matter to me, there’s something sadder to see, Kicked out the garden, no pardon, yeah Cain and Abel are starting, To live in the real world giving gifts to the Lord, Poor Cain’s is rejected but he don’t know what for, Mad at the Lord, he takes it out on Abel with that murder murder more murder more murder, Abel is willing and able The blood started flowing til it wetted up the ground, The ground started moaning so the Lord came round, Put that mark on his head, though he’s better off dead, When people see him coming they’ll say “There’s a fugitive!” He was a farmer, but now when he digs, The earth is wearing armor and his shovel’s made of twigs, Cursed all his days til he faces the reaper, All Cain had to say for himself is…

  6. 6. The 10 Plagues Moses at the Red Sea, like “who’s gonna follow me?” Pharaoh’s in the tide, we gonna ride to our destiny, In back of me, so sad to see, bodies in the red sea, Chariots get buried, b-b-buried in the red sea. Pharaoh sat and laughed when a staff became a snake, Too long we’ve been your slaves, just let us go and pray, said “don’t make this mistake,” No pardon his heart was hardened so started what we regard as: The Days of 10 Plagues! One: blood in the river, gonna shiver, gonna freak out Lips take a sip, now there’s blood in your mouth Two: frogs in your house, in your bed, on your plates Don’t matter what’s for dinner, better like frog legs! Three…
