J's Journal:
This is the famous story of Balaam and his talking donkey in Numbers 22. Balaam was a sorcerer, and it's interesting to note that he didn't even seem surprised when his donkey spoke. He was more shocked at sight of the Angel of the LORD with the drawn sword who appeared in front of them both soon after. I got the idea for this song while I was on the phone with Karl one day. I was thinking about AC/DC's song "Moneytalks" and said, "We could do 'Donkeytalk.'" And then the idea for "Donkey Talked With Him" popped into my head. Eureka! Since the subject of this song was a donkey, we couldn't resist adding an additional spoofed snippet of our favorite donkey-oriented Rolling Stones song, "Beast of Burden," in the middle.

Donkey Talked With Him
Parody of "Honky Tonk Women" by The Rolling Stones
(Numbers 22-24)

They sent a man of prophecy against us
They tried to make him curse us for a price
He had to leave without it 'cause he told them
"Guys, I just can't seem to curse the Israelites!"
His do-o-onkey talked with him
Give him, give him, give him the donkey talk blues
King Balak sent for Balaam to curse Israel
He had to get on his donkey for a ride
An angel nearly cut him into pieces
His donkey froze and then she spoke her mind!
CHORUS
Iíve never seen no beast of burden
Who actually spoke, but it's for certain
All I want is for you to read Numbers please
Chapter 22, sugarpop!
CHORUS
