Jericho

You used to see Jonah but you lost him to a fish

I swung by Friday night with a seafood dish

Now we are too tired to hear him wash up on the shore

Let us lie above the clouds and read some Hebrew lore

Joshua’s a friend of mine; we met him at your place

I read in the Dead Sea Scrolls that he’s now the battling ace

But we are far too tired to push a single wall

Let’s lie above the clouds and watch Jericho fall

Back in Kansas, pages turn to as far as they can go

They all read Revelations as they feel that tornado

But we are far too tired to watch the cyclone whirl

Let me kiss your little lips in paradise, my girl.
