Lyrics

BROWN MOSES:
Oh-oh! Wait a minute! What?

What wickedness is dis?
De way you's carryin' on!
Dis pygmy I be clutchin'
Have been lef' out on de lawn!

De daddy were ne-glij-ible,
De mama were de-flate-able,
De trauma to de imfunt
Be mostly not ne-gate-able

Yo' urgin' to be exitin'
Because of dem fla-min-i-go's
Be thoroughly perplexin' him
Because of where yo' petuh goes

If only you been 'siderate
Erbout dis lil' illiterate
I wouldna been trudgin' cross de san'
Fum way down yonder in E-gyp-lan'

Dey callin' me BROWN MOSES,
Fo' dat is sho'ly what I am,
Ancient an' re-lij-er-mus
Solemn an' pres-tig-i-mus

Wisdom reekin' outa me
'Long wif summa dis baby pee
'Minds me of dem River Weeds
'N all dem ignint Bible deeds

Growed up in de Pharoah place,
Lef' de sucker in disgrace!
Some dem boys refuse to loin
Somthin' smokin', somthin' boin!

Somethin' borry, somethin' blue!
Best keeps a lil' paper in yo shoe!
Hear me when I's tellin' you:
Leavin' de midgit were wrong t'do!

It's a terr'ble thang
Done did to him
Left wit de crab-grass
Over his chin!
Sho'ly one day
He will grow,
'N put some shit
In yo' sack o' woe


MAMMY NUN ENSEMBLE:
OL' BROWN MOSES now have spoke!
Could ya lends me 'bout a dollar?
I's a tiny bit broke
I likes my wine, I loves my gin
'N fo a lil' collateral, I'll gives ya him!
A lil' collateral, I'll gives ya him!
A lil' collateral, I'll gives ya him!
I said a lil' collateral,
A lil' collateral,
A lil' collateral,
A lil' collateral,
A lil' collateral,
I'll gives ya him!
I'll gives ya him!
Take a pompadour, baby!
