Friends in Low Places
to the tune of “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks
Blame it all on Pharaoh
When he just said no,
Our treatment would not be fair.
I was the first one to know
We just had to go
We just couldn’t stay there.
And I saw the surprise
And fear in their eyes
When the water started to spread
I turned to gloat,
Said you may need a big boat,
Or you all will end up real dead!
Oh, I’ve got friends in low places
I can see the doubt on their faces
But we’ll be ok,
I know we’ll find a way.
We’ll all sing Adonai’s praises
If we ever reach that oasis,
Oh, I’ve got friends in low places.
Now I’m with Adonai
Up on Mount Sinai
God’s gonna keep us alive.
The folks down below
They just need to know
You’re gonna help us survive.
So give us some rules
We’ll prove we’re not fools
I’ll walk down below with my staff.
Show us the way
And we’ll all do as You say
And melt down that old golden calf!
(Repeat chorus)
