So You Wanna Go Back to Egypt Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

So you wanna go back to Egypt
Where it's warm and secure
Are you sorry you bought the one way ticket
When you thought you were sure?

You wanted to live in the land of promise
But now it's getting so hard
Are you sorry you're out here in the desert
Instead of your own backyard?

Eating leeks and onions by the Nile
Ooh, what breath but dining out in style
Ooh, my life's on the skids, give me the pyramids
Well, there's nothing to do
But travel and we sure travel a lot

'Cause it's hard to keep your feet from moving
When the sand gets so hot
And in the morning it's manna hotcakes
We snack on manna all day

And they sure had a winner last night for dinner
Flaming manna souffle
Well, we once complained for something new to munch
The ground opened up and had some of us for lunch

Ooh, such fire and smoke
Can't God even take a joke, huh?
(No)
So you wanna go back to Egypt
Where old friends wait for you
You can throw a big party and tell the whole gang
That what they said was all true

And this Moses acts like a big-shot
Who does he think he is?
It's true that God works lots of miracles
But Moses thinks they're all his

Well, I'm having so much trouble even now
Why'd he get so mad about that cow, that golden cow
Moses sits rather idle, he just sits around
He just sits around and writes the Bible

Oh, Moses, put down your pen
What? Oh no, manna again?
Oh, manna waffles, manna burgers
Manna bagels, fillet of manna
Manna patties, bamanna bread
