Lyrics

I want a marriage like they had in the Bible, because the Bible tells me so.

Now, Abraham and Sarah had a marriage, but she could not bear him…a kid.
So Sarah gave Abraham a slave girl and pretty soon they did it and she did, Lord Lord.
Yeah pretty soon they did it and they did it, and they did it, and they did it…did it…did it and she did.

Now I know slavery was banned.
But a woman should be free to give a slave girl to her husband.

I want a marriage like they had in the Bible, because the Bible tells me so.

Now Othniel and Achsah had a marriage, cuz she was a battle prize he won.
Yes, he fought to win Caleb’s daughter. And he was Caleb’s brother and his son-in-law.
Yeah, he was Caleb’s brother and his son.

Now I know it sounds like incest, yes it does, but a woman should be proud to be married off and princessed.

I want a marriage like they had in the Bible, because the Bible tells me so.

Now if two brothers live together and one dies, the other brother must marry his brother’s widow.
For this is pleasing, yes it’s pleasing in God’s eyes.
And if he should refuse, then she should steal his shoes and spit right in his face.
It’s right there in the Bible.

Now Jezebel and Ahab had a marriage. And she began usurping all his power.
She was wicked, of course, but he could not divorce her, so he had her thrown right off the tower, Lord, Lord.
And sent the dogs her carcass to devour.

Now I know, it sounds excessive. But a woman should submit to her husband or be made a mess of.

I want a marriage like they had in the Bible, because the Bible tells me so.

Now if a man should take a woman to be his, and if it turns out he thinks she’s not a virgin.
Well then her parents have a chance to prove she is. And if they let her down, then every man in town,
should stone her till she’s dead. It’s right there in the Bible. (Deuteronomy)

Now Solomon and Naamah had a marriage. And they were together all their lives.
Yes she was his. And he was pretty busy, cuz she was one of seven hundred wives, Lord, Lord.
Yeah, Solomon had seven hundred wives. (And three hundred concubines.)

Now I know, that’s illegal. But a woman should be one of as many wives as her man can inveigle.

I want a marriage like they had in the Bible, because the Bible tells me so.
