In the days of my youth I was shown all the kings Judea had And now I teach that age -- I try to review all those kings the best I can So gather 'round I'll try to find my way through the names of them
Good guys, bad guys, old Judah had her share 20 rulers had the throne after Solomon And I'll tell you all the people there
Rehoboam, he's the guy who started it off With Abijah, and Asa makes three Jehosophat, Jehoram, Ahaziah, Athaliah -- she's the wicked queen Then Joash, Amaziah, Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz then Good Hezekiah, wicked Manasseh and Amon I'm not done with 'em yet... ahhh
Good guys, bad guys, then Josiah and his heirs That's Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, Zedekiah, see, we're there!
Good guys, bad guys, you know what happened there When a good one left the throne for the Promised Land Then a villain seized the chair
I know one more King you need to know I'm sure you guessed that on your own Now, I don't care what the papers say Christ's King of the Jews, and each and every place You're gonna feel the need within your heart You and I, sweet baby, need to get te Son of God
