Lots of Begatting - 2010 Jeff Raught

Opening narration;
There’s a list that charts the generations from Adam right up through Joseph, husband of Mary, mother of Jesus. You may not recognize everybody on that list, but like everybody’s relatives and fore-bearers there was some fine folk and there was some real stinkers. They done some good and they done some bad, some more than others but what they all done was begat one another and this they all done real good.


Verse 1
Lots of begatting over the years
lots of begatting was done.
The son of a son, of a son, of a son, of a son, of a son, of a...........son

Verse 2
Jesus and Joseph, Heli, Mathaat
Levi and Melchi as a matter of fact
Some I can't pronounce, some I cannot spell.
If you want to know them all,
You can look them up yourself

CHORUS: (mostly filled with fun gibberish and lots of yada's)

Verse 3
A different culture and a different place
I can't always put a name with a face.
The meanings of some a historical blur
And I don't know why, they named their child Ur......URRRRRRR

Verse 4
The genealogy of any family tree
Will have some implications you can plainly see
Begatting continues, it goes on and on
I've repeatedly tried to end this song.

CHORUS: (More spirited whoops, snorts, yahoos and more snorts.)
