Jericho was a great city Surrounded by a great wall Jericho was a great city Whose wall would never fall (so they say!) There were houses on the wall And chariots on it too It was a mighty wall Wide as an avenue Joshua was a man of God, he was a warrior bold Joshua was a man of God, he did as he was told He saw that wall of Jericho and trembled at the sight He never thought he'd see that wall fall in just one night He marched his army around the wall Once a day for six long days The priests that blew the trumpets Were dressed in bright array On the seventh day they marched seven times around that city wall And when they shouted as God had said The saw that great wall fall! (It's fallen, and it cant get up! Oh no, Jericho! Jericho!) Oh, Jericho was a great city Surrounded by a great wall Jericho was a great city Whose wall could never fall Though there was no hope at all 'Til God told Josh what to do That wall stood mighty tall Until the trumpets blew It fell to the ground, it made a mighty splat It fell to the ground, it fell down flat You know it fell to the ground, it made a mighty splat It fell to the ground just like that. Oh no, Jericho. The wall of Jericho went boom!
