Greatest Story Ever Told
- 41 Views
Moses come ridin' up on a quasar His spurs were jingling, the door was ajar His buckle was silver, his manner was bold And I asked him to come in out of the cold His brain was boiling, his reason was spent His motto is nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent He ask me for mercy, I gave him a gun He said these things just got to be done Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence You'd get right to work if you had any sense You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench Gideon come up with his eyes on the floor Said "you ain't got a hinge, you can't close the door" Moses stood up above his six foot and ten Said "you can't close the door when the wall's caved in" Ask him for water, he poured me some wine We finished the bottle and broke into mine You get what you come for, ya ready to go Well, it's one in ten thousand that come for the show Abraham and Isaac diggin' on a well Mama came quick with the water witch spell Well cool clear water well you can't ever tell Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence You'd get right to work if you had any sense You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench
