Comin' Up From Babylon

When Joseph, Peace upon him, was carried into Egypt
I noticed that his coat was torn
He was hurtin′ and neglected and that's not what he expected
So he′s comin' up from Babylon
He was hurtin' and neglected and that′s not what he expected
So he′s comin' up from Babylon
When Moses, Peace upon him, was cast out on the water
His people had to carry on
He walked the straight and narrow ′til it took him
Back to Pharaoh
Now they're comin′ up from Babylon
He walked the straight and narrow and it took him
Back to Pharaoh
Now they're comin′ up from Babylon

And what're you gonna do - what're you gonna say
When the angels come a-singin′ HALL-LE-LU-I-AY
Sisters and the Sons of Drums facin′ the millennium
Comin' up from Babylon
I′ve been lookin' at the signs here in 1999
Seein′ where the lines are drawn
We've come to a decision and now we know our mission
Is to get up outa Babylon
We′ve come to a decision and now we know our mission
Is to get up outa Babylon

And what're you gonna do - what're you gonna say
When the angels come a-singin′ HALL-LE-LU-I-AY
Sisters and the Sons of Drums facin′ the millennium
Comin' up from Babylon
