You Must Let My People Go To the tune of “If I Only Had a Brain” from the Wizard of Oz

I have come to tell you clearly

To let you know sincerely

My people suffer so.

God has sent me to order

Stop the bricks and the mortar

You must let my people go.

If you don’t let them skedaddle,

You’ll have some real sick cattle

And a frog will bite your toe.

All the common folks and royals

Will be breaking out in boils.

You must let my people go.

Right now we’re in a mess.

But this is just a phase.

God will bring the Hebrew people better days

And, Pharaoh, you will change your ways.

You’re afraid that the Egyptians

Will have some big conniptions

If you change the status quo.

In the end, you’ll have to do it

So you might as well get to it.

You must let my people go.
