My favorite Metallica song.
I know we tend to give song writers a break, and maybe I'm wrong about this, but there seems to be a grammatical error in the lyrics.

So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born Pharaoh's son

As written, it refers to the son of the first born Pharaoh, not the first born son of the current Pharaoh, which is the intended meaning. IMO the lyrics could just as easily be "to kill the Pharaoh's first born son..."

I noticed that a long time ago as well, but if Neil Diamond can sing stuff like, "Songs she sang to me, songs she brang to me," well...

I spent last evening listening to much of what the Rat Pack put out way back when. Can't choose just one, they were all excellent.
