CAIN AND ABEL

Chorus

Cain and Abel were the first brothers

And what’s further

Cain killed Abel

Committed the first murder

Before him, senseless violence

Was unheard of

But since then

Killing has gotten a lot worse

(Repeat)

 

Verse 1

Abel was the shepherd

And the farmer was Cain

Abel looked after the herd

His brother harvested grain

They were typical brothers

That would argue in vain

But at the end of the day

They loved each other the same

Adam and Eve said to sacrifice a lamb

To show appreciation to God

For blessing the land

Abel had decided to do the best that he can

But for Cain to give his all

That wasn’t part of his plan

The lamb Abel sacrificed

Was welcomed by the Lord

Cain wasn’t accepted, so it made him sore

So Cain became jealous

And the envy turned to more

And it went from anger to hatred

And ate him to the core

Instead of looking within

And put himself in check

Because it was his own fault

He didn’t do his best

He took Abel’s obedience

As blatant disrespect

And he let it eat him alive

And you know what happened next

 

Chorus

Cain and Abel were the first brothers

And what’s further

Cain killed Abel

Committed the first murder

Before him, senseless violence

Was unheard of

But since then

Killing has gotten a lot worse

(Repeat)

 

Verse 2

Cain wasn’t ready

To admit that he was wrong

So he went for a walk, invited Abel along

But Abel didn’t realize what was going on

Cain struck him down and killed him before long

The Lord asked Cain

Where’s your brother?

He said

I ain’t know we had to baby sit each other

And God said

He only tried his best for his mother

So he could please me

How could you be such a sucker?

Cain finally realized the horror of his action

God said

You got to go now

So Cain asked him

When someone finds me and kills me

What’s gonna happen?

The Lord cursed him

And told him to get packing

If they hurt him

Then they wouldn’t get to heaven

The curse would go to them

Multiplied by seven

Cain wondered the earth

Would never get a blessing

God said

Leave him

I hope he learned his lesson

Yeah
