Век живи - век учись...

Или ну кто бы мог подумать, что я настолько плохо воспринимаю английский язык в музыке...
Сегодня обнаружил, что песня Let My People Go имеет библейский сюжет. У меня она все время ассоциировалась с чем-то подпольно-гангстерским. Посыпаю голову пеплом... может и насчет других песен я тоже ошибаюсь?

Длинная версия песни. Армстронг поет короткую.

1. When Israel was in Egypt's land,
let my people go;
oppressed so hard they could not stand,
let my people go.
Refrain:
Go down, (go down) Moses, (Moses)
way down in Egypt's land;
tell old Pharaoh
to let my people go!

2. "Thus saith the Lord," bold Moses said,
let my people go;
"if not, I'll smite your first-born dead,"
let my people go.
(Refrain)

3. No more shall they in bondage toil,
let my people go;
let them come out with Egypt's spoil,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

4. We need not always weep and mourn,
let my people go;
and wear those slavery chains forlorn,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

5. Come, Moses, you will not get lost,
let my people go;
stretch out your rod and come across,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

6. As Israel stood by the water's side,
let my people go;
at God's command it did divide,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

7. When they had reached the other shore,
let my people go;
they sang a song of triumph o'er,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

8. O Moses, the cloud shall cleave the way,
let my people go;
a fire by night, a shade by day,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

9. Your foes shall not before you stand,
let my people go;
and you'll possess fair Canaan's land,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

10. This world's a wilderness of woe,
let my people go;
O let us on to Canaan go,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

11. O let us all from bondage flee,
let my people go;
and let us all in Christ be free,
let my people go.
(Refrain)

Нда... в таком варианте я ее точно не слышал.
