today, by Sundown. I will release my 4th single from my forthcoming 31st cd and 69th recording “2nd King of Jewish Punk” #31/#69. As all recordings on the King of Jewish punk series, these were songs from my back-catalog that I am rewriting and rerecording. “1st Diaspora-Egypt” was originally from my 16th cd “Diaspora: A folk-punk History of the Hebrew Nation” released 3/31/2009. it covers the Passover story in 6:05 from the slavery of Joseph to the desert wanderings. love ya’s all
here are the words:
sold as a slave
prime minister rises from the dungeon cave
a Prophecy-of ugly cows and grain
from a Prophecy: one million saved.
OF THE AMO’RITES NOT YET FULFILLED
THAT WILL TAKE ANOTHER 400 YEARS
ALONG THE RIVER NILE
FROM SLAVERY: A NEW NATION
becomes a Nation 10, 000-fold
implied threat to Pharoah’s horde
“Build me pyramids!”
no straw will be doled.
The Miracle of Redemption
series of plagues numbering ten
the Sea of Reeds is divided
Pharoah’s hordes lie beaten
Freed from the Egyptian Diaspora
we’ll be slaves many times for our sins
40 years to die in the Desert/ a Chosen Nation
He will always forgive.
