Get Down Moses
(Bullen/Shields/Slattery/Stafford/Strummer)

Lyrics

Once I got to the mountain top tell you what I could see
Prairie full of lost souls running from the priests of iniquity
Where the hell was Elijah
What do you do when the prophecy game was through

We gotta take the walls of Jericho
Put your lips together and blow
To the very top
Say the truth crystallizes like jewels in the rock in the rock

Get down Moses part another sea
Carve another tablet out of L.S.D.
Get down Moses out in Tennessee
Get down Moses down in the street
The blood washing down all the gravel to our feet
Get down Moses down in the pit

Lying in a dream cross a battle field
Crashing on a downtown strip
Looking in the eyes of the diamonds and the spies and the hip
Who's sponsoring the crack ghetto
Who's lecturing who's in the know and in the don't know

You better take the walls of Jericho
Put your lips together and blow
Goin' to the very top
Where the truth crystallizes like jewels in the rock in the rock

Get down Moses eagle's aerie
You gotta to make new friends out of old enemies
Get down Moses back in Tennessee
Get down Moses down with the dreads
They got a lotta reasoning in a deadhead
Get down Moses down in the street

Get down Moses part another sea
Carve another tablet out of L.S.D.
Get down Moses out in Tennessee
Get down Moses down in the street
The blood washing down all the gravel to our feet
Get down Moses down in the pit

Get down Moses get down Moses
Get down Moses we need to eat
We gotta chew it over with our wisdom teeth
Get down Moses
