Jezebel

: 4:57
MP3-:
: The Golden Gate Jublilee Quartet, - (Diamanda Galas)

Well stop, great God, stop there and listen,
Listen to the story 'bout Jezebel.
Her sins were so wicked Jehovah got angry,
Her soul went leapin' and jumpin' into Hell.
Way back yonder in the olden days,

John told Jezebel to borrow her ways,
Said her evil deeds had ruined the land
And repent for the kingdom of God was at hand.
She got mad at John 'cause he told her 'bout the gospel,
Told her servants to boil him in oil.

Well they tell me God looked
From the windows of the heavens,
Spoke one word and the oil wouldn't boil.

He raised his hand, creation trembled,
Stamped his feet and time stood still,
Raised his voice, looked down
And thundered "John! Go do my will."

You got to go to judgment, stand trial.

Then they tell me John moved
Through the power of the gospel,

Told Jezebel her time was nigh.
On the book of life, her days were ended,
Her time run out and she had to die.

You got to go to judgment, stand trial.

Then Death come knockin on Jezebels door and said
Come on woman aint you ready to go?
Of your evil deeds Gods done got tired,
you got to go to judgment, stand trial."
Then Death come leapin she jumped into Hell,
great God Almighty I heard them tell.
Nine days she lay in Jerusalems streets,
her flesh was too filthy for the dogs to eat.

You got to go to judgment, stand trial.

Jezebel, mind Gods talking,
says hes tired of your evil ways.
You got to go to judgment, stand trial."
