Pharaoh, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years the Jews you'd free
It’s all over
You see its time for us to leave ya
I hope there’s no hard feelings

I can’t hear you
I think the river needs some cleanin’
It’s turning red
And we’re thirsty
What’s with all these frogs
In my streets?
Locusts flying
I’ve got boils
And this hail is so freaky

There's not much difference
Between us
Except our million gods.

Moses all our cattle’s died
We must have scratched a thousand times
I'll tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
Just stop these plagues
And don’t mention the firstborns

Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
When we ruled the Jews, our slaves, but now we're stressed out.
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
Before met this dude, now our sheep are dead, we're stressed out.

I ain’t playin pretend, no one’s gonna get away
I hope you brought your swimming trunks
Cuz you’ll need them for the day

Gonna take your gold and silver, eat some matzah and be free,
Then maybe we’ll eat lots of manna.

No time for dough to rise, bread of freedom is its name
Leave behind all of the ego and time now has no reign
Fermentation is a process that only happens certain ways
Tasting freedom, now live like a soul.

My God He don't like you and He loves everyone
And I think it's time for you to admit you’re wrong

Now we all leave for Israel
Cuz with God we cannot fail
And now we know
That He’s the one that’s in control

Well I just can't believe we let them go
Ohhhh maybe we can catch them at the sea
Don't be afraid lets go and follow them,
I told you, you should have listened to me

Hello from the other side
Free at last in the Sinai
To go get the Torah, Jewish nation is born
Have a Happy Passover.
May you feel freedom down to your core.

You cannot depict Moahe Rabeinu like that! Which leadership allowed this?!

Not to be harsh,but I don't think it is in the spirit of Pesach to take a Goyish song and rewrite the lyrics, making it a "jewish" song. We mention in the Torah how we didn't mix in with the Mitzri culture;we kept our language,style of dress,etc.This is that season,and you are commemorating this by taking Mitzri (Read:"Goyish") and making it a Pesach song?
