The Lyrics

I did yesterday the Kings of Israelites, so today it is the kings of Judah. While Judah bore the legitimate line of kings descended from David, it always was a state of lesser importance than Israel, which was a regional superpower.
In the year before Lord, year ten-twentyfour, Saul was crowned as the lawful king
He had son Jonathan, and a good general, who could also play harp and could sing
It has David, his name, and Goliath his fame
He was Champion, now all people knew that
Saul had son, Isboseth, who was stabbed - ouch - to death
They were first two the kings of Judah

After quite nasty sting David was now the King and he ruled thirty eight years to come
He was followed by son whose name was Solomon and he was known as the wise one
He had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines, Rehabeam was his lawful heir - oh
When the bucket he kicked, soon the kingdom was split
thus began the true kingdom of Judah

Tax Rehabeam did raise and soon from the haze rose Jeroboam of Israel
Ten of tribes did he take and along with his wake came the king of Egypt infidel
Shishak sacked Jerusalem and he took all of them
golden shields which were present at temple -oh
Followed son, Abijam and then Asa, his son
who were next as the kings of Judah

Next king Jehosaphat, on the royal throne sat year eight hundred and seventy-three
He was warrior king and he did quarreling with the Moab and did trade to sea
Successor Jehoram, Ataliah Madam, as his wife and the mother of Ahaziah
She was bitch as a queen and the worst which was seen
as the wife of the kings of Judah

Ahaziah ruled one year and the worst of the fears did come true when Ataliah was crowned
She was tyrant, worst kind. and she killed all she'd find of descendanfs of Jehoram
But just one grandson escaped being undone, and he was crowned as king and to do that
Ataliah was slain and Jehoash was name
of the next as the king of Judah

Amaziah was next and the Chronichles' text mention Uzziah as next to his kin
He caught vitiligo and was locked in his house and was succeeded Jotham as king
Ahaz was next to rule, he was young and a fool
He pissed off, hey, Tiglat-Pileser
He was caught prisoner and he died far away
Hezekiah went king of Judah

He reigned twenty-nine years, and a barrel of tears were shed when Senn'cherib did invade
He burnt towns, looted land and it's claimed Upper Hand was involved when Jerus'lem was saved
And his son, Menaseh, was in Niniveh
as a captive and prisoner for two years
He ruled years fifty-five, that was longest the time
for the reigns of the kings of Judah

Amon, then Josiah, raided Samariah and he conquered lands of Israel
It was durign his reign when the greatest the fame befall Kingdom of Judah for real
He ruled thrty-two years and an awful lot tears were shed when he fell in Megiddo -
His son Jehoahaz next the crown-head was
on the throne of the kings of Judah

Brother Jehoiakin, he did soon depose him and he met soon a violent end
His son Jeconiah had Jeremiah as his prophet and faithful friend
But Zedeciah, his own uncle, did - what!
He deposed him as king and the ruler
He was last of his line and 589
came the end to the kings of Judah
