The Begat lyrics - Finian's Rainbow Cast


The Begat Song Lyrics

The Lord made Adam.
The Lord made Eve.
He made them both
A little bit naive.
They lived as free
As the summer breeze,
Without pajamas and without chemise.
Until they stumbled
on the apple trees.
Then she looked at him,
(she looked)
And he looked at her,
(he looked)
And they knew immediately
What the world was fer...
He said, "Gimme my cane,"
He said, "Gimme my hat."
"The time has come
to begin the begat!"
(the begat, the begat)
So they begat Cain
And they begat Abel,
Who begat the rabble
At the Tower of Babel.
They begat the Cohens,
They begat O'Rourkes,
And they begat the people
Who believed in storks.
Lordy, Lordy, how they did begat!
How they did begat!
Even more than that
And when the begat got
to gettin' under par
They begat the daughters
of the D.A.R.
They begat the Babbits
of the bourgeoisie,
Who begat the misbegotten V.I.P.
They begat (boom, boom)
They begat (boom, boom)
It was pleasing to Jezebel,
Pleasing to Ruth.
It pleased the League of Women Shoppers
in Duluth.
Though the movie censors
Tried the facts to hide,
The moviegoers up and multiplied.
Lordy, Lordy, how they multiplied!
How they multiplied!
How they multiplied.
Soon it swept the world
Ev'ry land and lingo.
It became the rage.
It was bigger than bingo!
The white begat
The red begat
The folks who shoulda stood in bed begat
The Greeks begat
The Swedes begat
Why, even Britishers in tweeds begat
And Lordy, Lordy, what their seeds begat!
The Lats and Lithuanians begat.
Scranton Pennsylvanians begat.
Strict vegetarians begat.
Honorary Aryans begat.
Startin' from Genesis, they begat.
Heroes and menaces begat
Fat filibusterers begat.
Income tax adjusterers begat.
'Twas naturaler and naturaler to begat
And sometimes a bachelor, he begat!
It didn't matter which a-ways, they begat.
Sons of habitues begat.
So bless them all
Who go to bat
And heed the call
Of the begat!
