Barbra Streisand Mene, Mene, Tekel Lyrics

Last updated:

I don't recall all of the lyrics, particularly the bridge, but here is what I
remember:


The King of Babylon, Belshazzer
He was a mean old razzledazzer
He never paid no income taxes
The big shot of the Babylon-Jerusalem Axis

Mene, mene, tekel, tekel, tekel
Mene, mene, tekel
U-oo-pharsin

The King of Babylon, Belshazzer
The King of Babylon, Belshazzer
He was a mean old razzledazzer
Sittin' with his wives and concubines
A-shovin' in fried chicken and impor-orted wines

Mene, mene, tekel, tekel, tekel
Mene, mene, tekel
You-oo-pharsin

The King of Babylon, Belshazzer
He was a mean old razzledazzer
He never paid no income taxes
The Bigshot of the Babylon-Jerusalem Axis

Mene, mene, tekel, tekel, tekel
Mene, mene, tekel
You-oo-pharsin

(Bridge: the lyric about the finger appearing
I don't remember. But when the King saw it...)

The King grew cold Where he was sittin'
The finger wrote, and havin' written
It vanished slowly overhead
And this is what the writng of the Go-ood Lord said,

Mene, mene, tekel, tekel, tekel
Mene, mene, tekel
You-oo-pharsin

The King grew cold where he was sittin'
The Finger wrote and having written
It vanished slowly overhead
And this is what the writing of the Good Lord said

Mene, mene, tekel, tekel, tekel
Mene, mene, tekel
You-oo-pharsin
