Sheba
Parody of "She Bop" by Cyndi Lauper
(1 Kings 10:1-13, 2 Chronicles 9:1-12)

Well, I see the Israelites have a wise new king
And my sages love the new boy's majesty
Hey, and I've been been makin' an investigation
I'm thinkin' of the good of my nation
Oh, Sheba! Sheba!

Do I wanna go up there and find out more
Yeah, I come from the south and He's in the north
Hey, they say that his wisdom's quite divine
They say I'll get a shock when I go find
Oh, Sheba! Sheba!

Sheba
Queen of the people
I brought good stuff to take the
Big boss king of Jerus'lem
I'm told he will understand
People, he's unbeliev'ble
I'm not too much for praise but
Yee haw, he's absolutely smart!

LEAD

Hey, maybe I should've brought a casserole
Because the man's got wisdom worth its weight in gold
Hey but I won't worry 'cause I brought gifts
And King Solomon is stinkin' rich
Oh, Sheba!

Sheba's queen's not Latifah
My job's too tough for hip-hop
He's sharp; he's got solutions
I know he will understand
People he's quite cerebral
I've shopped through all the nations
He's tops -- he's absolutely smart!
Oh, you know it, Sheba, Sheba!

Sheba's deep in Arabia
My spot you call it Yemen
Read the big Bible you've got
Find First Kings in chapter 10
People please also seek out
9:1 through 9 the Second
Book of the Chronicles, Sheba! (NOTE: pronounce the as "THEE" in this line)
Oh, you know it, Sheba!
Oh, you know it, Sheba!

1 Kings 10:4-5
When the queen of Sheba saw all the wisdom of Solomon and the palace he had
built, the food on his table, the seating of his officials, the attending
servants in their robes, his cupbearers, and the burnt offerings he made at
the temple of the Lord, she was overwhelmed.
