Lyrics and Chords: 1st capo G Intro: G D G: G D G

1G D G D G

Babel tower, hour by hour,

D G D G

grew so very high, right up to the sky.

D G

It had been built to a giddy height,

D G

with bricks and mortar, just look at the sight.

D G

Did ever you see such a thing in your life,

D G

as Babel Tower? G C G C G D G / / /

The Lord came down, builders all around,

watched them scurrying by, looked them in the eye.

Said, “All these people all speak as one,

there’s no end to what can be done,

we must confuse them with separate tongues,

this very hour!”

These Babel fools all downed tools.

They all said “Good-bye” “Adios,” “Au ‘voir,” “Addi.”

Just when you thought it would get no worse,

(it wasn’t as if they had all rehearsed)

they scattered from there all across the earth,

by God’s own power.
