Lyrics

In the beginning, God made day and night Then Abraham got tired of the Canaanites So he decided to go off and start his very own clan Well, he finagled some sheep and a couple of cows (you can read the bible if you want to know how) But then he saw the flaw in his little plan See, he and Sarah did it night and day They did it in the desert and they did it in the hay They did it and they did it until they almost wore it out But Sarah said, "Sorry" And Abe said "Thanks, I can't be sure who's shooting blanks So I'm gonna have to leave it up to you to work this out" So Sarah gave Abraham a jug of wine Then she gave him Hagar, the concubine and nine months later, there was little Ishmael So it was Sarah who was barren as a dry creek bed But she couldn't get those pictures out of her head and it would be an understatement to say she did not take it well She was in her 70s and she thought she'd had it But she and Abraham kept going at it And along came Isaac, her own little bundle of joy So she said, "Abe, I'm gonna need more room for the baby A place for the bassinet so do you think maybe You could get rid of Hagar and that dirty little ugly bastard boy?" Well, Hagar begged and Abraham whined But Sarah stood firm and she toed the line And before you know it, Hagar was on her own Well, Abraham didn't have to do it, but he thought it over and he figured, "Screw it, It's the easiest way I know to keep a happy home" So with the clothes on her back and a baby at her breast No food to eat, no place to rest Hagar began to starve in abject deprivation But God looked down, and God took pity And Ishmael lived, and he built a city And soon he was the leader of a brand new Arab nation Now we all know that sooner or later The Middle East will be a nuclear crater And we're all gonna die trying to fulfill some biblical matter That was written on papyrus with camel dung By some dim bulb on the bottom rung Of the entire human evolutionary ladder About a naked couple That was left to grapple with Life and Death and Snakes and Apples And a God that would let some guy kill 10,000 people with the jawbone of an ass So, don't you think it's time that we got rid Of hating somebody 'cause your daddy did and finally put our history in the past But, there's only one real question I have for you...... Don't we need better reasons for the things we do?
