A parody of Village People's song "YMCA"
refering to the Tetragrammaton /

Παρωδία του τραγουδιού "YMCA" των Village People
αναφερόμενη στο Τετραγράμματο







One man, with the sheep he was found
I said, one man saw a bush on the Mount
He said, How come it's not burnt to the ground?
Guess I need to see what's happening!
One man, in a place long ago,
I said, one man, who for short we'll call Mo
He went up there, and the Lord he did find
And he learned God's name for all time

CHORUS:
He spelled his name with just YHWH
He spelled his name with just YHWH
They have Exodus 3, if you plan to read more
You can learn all about the Lord
He spelled his name with just YHWH
He spelled his name with just YHWH
Can you guess what it means?
Just I am that I am
He's the Lord God of Abraham

Some men spell it L-O-R-D
Some men use a J and a V
I said Hey man, ain't no big deal to me
But you gotta know just one thing
No man should take God's name in vain
Cause he commands us to honour his name
He's our Father, Lord and YHWH
All those names work well when you pray

CHORUS

Back then, with the ancient Hebrews
They did not have A, E, I, Os or Us
And so Moses had no vowels he could buy
Wheel of Fortune shows were so dry
That's why sometimes there when you read
You'll find capitalized letters L-O-R-D
There's a place there for the YHWH
You can just pronounce it Yahweh
He spelled his name with just YHWH
He spelled his name with just YHWH

They have Exodus 3, if you plan to read more
You can learn all about the Lord
YHWH - The Tetragrammaton - YHWH
Yahweh, Yahweh, that's the name of renown
Yahweh, Yahweh, it's a most awesome sound
YHWH - the highest one is - YHWH
No man, no man, should take God's name in vain
Cause he commands us to honour his name
YHWH - so just go to him…
