MOSES: THE DAYS OF 10 PLAGUES
Chorus: Moses at the red sea, like “who’s gonna follow me?” Phoarah’s in the tide, we gonna ride, to our destiny, In back of me, so sad to see, them bodies in the red sea chariots get buried, b-b-buried in the red sea Pharaoh sat and laughed when a staff became a snake, too long we’ve been your slaves, just let us go and pray, said "don’t make this mistake," no pardon his heart was hardened, so started what we regard as: the days of 10 plagues...
one: blood in the river gonna shiver, gonna freak out
lips take a sip now there's blood in your mouth
Two: frogs in your house on your beds on your plate
don't matter what's for dinner better like frog legs
Three: knats buzz buzz watch the dust turn to bugs
itch itch hard to think with all the lice in your mugs
Four: beasts roam your streets when you step outside
there's a tiger on your tail nowhere to hide
Five: death of your livestock, flesh dries up
b-b-bodies in your barn pharoah when you gonna wise up?
Six: boils on your flesh no less than torture
careful of the ash in the air it'll scorch ya
Seven: hail rains down beats your brains down
like a message from the heavens better lay our chains down
Eight: locusts from the coast you can hear their wing click
eating crops eating trees til they're used as toothpicks
Nine: darkness, dispatch, 3 days pitch
remember when this started and you thought it was just witchcraft
Death of the first born how did it come to this
ten is what it took so we all would remember this
The Bible Raps Project
The Bible Raps Project is a new initiative aimed at exciting young Jewish students about Judaism, Jewish Heritage, and Jewish texts. Built around a series of raps that draw on texts from the Bible and Midrash, the Bible Raps Project will resonate with Jewish youth in a way that traditional media cannot by fusing rap music, this generation's most powerful mode of cultural communication, with Jewish discourse. It is an innovative strategy, consisting of professional grade music and an accompanying curriculum, to express the value of Jewish Peoplehood and cultural relevancy among young Jews while injecting needed excitement into the Jewish educational experience.
