12' There Is A Voice In Ramah' Rap ( Matthew 2. 16-18)

I'm feelin' aggravated and so infuriated,

The wise men said they'd come back and they lied.

They promised that they would, when I told them that they should.

When I get my hands on them, they're gonna DIE !

And now I got the hump, in my throat there is a lump,

And I'm so devastated I could cry.

It's all been fabricated.

That a king has been created?

Is this just another star up in the sky ?

But what if it's all true, this has come out of the blue,

What a big, almighty fuss this babe has made.

My scribes were never faster to premeditate disaster.

If I let him live he'll put me in the shade !

So I'll have him expurgated and then annihilated,

And I'll be liberated only then,

If all children two and under,

By the sword are cast asunder,

In the pestilential town of Bethlehem.

E A E

"Go !" There is a voice in Ramah,

"Go !" Wailing and loudly lamenting,

E A E

"Go!" It is Rachel weeping,

"Go !" Weeping for all of her children.

A E A B7 E

Refusing to be comforted, because they are no more !

"Put an end to him!"
