1-2-3
I’ve heard enough

Bigamy was Esau's burden
I married me girls who grieved my kin
I’m bringing someone now to solve that
I just got married once again - I'm takin' a chance, yes

Well, I heard what my mom thinks about them (Mother’s mad)
Well, her dirty deal put me down
Well, I hope my mom will remember:
Her son who ran won't be around anyhow

Sweet Oholibamah, you’re my wife, that’s the truth
Sweet Oholibamah, you’re just one of quite a few

I’m burning mad, but I love my mother, now (Boo hoo hoo)
But she's tied in with Jacob’s ruse
While brother Jacob was robbing me
Mother conned my father, too – I'm telling the truth

Sweet Oholibamah, all my wives are so blue
They don’t love my mama ‘cause my mama don’t approve

Here it comes, melodrama

Now Mother goes and talks to Papa
“Let Jacob go and pick a wife or two” (Ain’t she cute)
Oh, that ticks me off so much
It ticks me off 'cause he flew the coop – Now, I might sue

Sweet Oholibamah, yeah, my wives aren’t amused
We gonna have a problem if we go on Family Feud
Sweet Oholibamah (oh, sweetheart)
Yeah, my wives aren’t so few (but my love is true)
Even though I’m not monogamous (oh, no)
You’re my one and only too

Now go look it up at Genesis 36
