lyrics

She was just a shepherdess
Walking over to the well
She was pleasing to his eye
His heart had turned to
Liquid at her feet, Oh Oh Oh…
Liquid at her feet Oh Oh Oh.,,

Immediately he fell in love
Asking for her hand in marriage
Her father Laban said "you cannot
Marry her until you work for me Oh Oh Oh..
Until you work for me Oh Oh Oh…."


Seven years it would take this long
Seven years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven years for his dear love

Seven years felt only to him
But a few days for his love for her
Was so strong, stronger than a mountain,
Stronger than the eye could see
Oh Oh Oh stronger than the eye could see

When the evening time had come
There was the wedding celebration
Laban took his sister Leah
To the groom but she was not his love,
Oh Oh Oh
Deceitfully was ushered to him


Seven years it would take this long
Seven years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven years for the wrong one!

Bah dah bah bah bah
Bah dah bah bah bah...

Seven Years
it would take this long,
Seven Years to be strong
His love for her surpasses all his days
Seven Years for the wrong one!
