ApologetiX - That Daughter lyrics

Parody of "Black Water" by The Doobie Brothers
(Genesis 29)

Well, I made me a deal with my old Uncle Laban
Read Genesis - It's in 29:20
"Give me your daughter; I'll work seven years for her
'Cause I love her so much, it'll seem just like days"
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Workin' in the sun when it's hot and boilin' and
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Workin' in the field for my Rachel darlin' and
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Never thought about Uncle Laban spoilin' my plans
He was spoilin' my plans
Gonna get a wedding ring
But I think there's something sneaky about that man
And I ain't got no worries
But I hope these years hurry along
Well, it was Rachel I loved - didn't have no deference to Leah
Just want to marry that girl and go home
Yeah, but Laban switched them on my weddin' night
And then Leah was my wife
And I had to go work seven years more
CHORUS
He was spoilin' my plans
Gonna get a wedding ring
Then I think I'm gonna leave this Haran land
And I ain't got no worries
But I hope these years hurry along
LEAD
Yeah, I wanna pack my bags and leave this land
Uncle Laban's always makin' me change my plans
Change my plans, plans, makes me change my plans,
Uncle Laban, gonna scram since your daddy done me wrong
I wanna pack my bags and leave this land
Uncle Laban's always makin' me change my plans
Change my plans, plans, makes me change my plans,
Uncle Laban, gonna scram since your daddy done me wrong
(C'mon Rachel! C'mon Rachel!)
(Leee-ah! Leee-ah!)
