This is my song to help me remember all the kings of Judah. I know it doesn't always rhyme, but I tried hard! :)
Here are the words:

The very first king was Saul
He was handsome, he was tall
But he was too arrogant
So he missed out, the kingdom went

To David, who was young but loyal
So Jehovah swore his royal
Line would never end and he
Served Jehovah faithfully

Until his death, and then his son
Became the wise King Solomon
He built the temple, made God happy
Wrote Proverbs and Ecclesiastes

And then the twelve tribe kingdom split
'Cause Rehoboam was an idiot
He didn't listen to the older men
So he fought with Israel till his end

Abijah was the next king
But he did not learn anything
So Jehovah, three years later
Gave the throne to his son, Asa

Asa made Jehovah glad
Got rid of worship that was bad
But he lost faith at the end of his life
Got diseased feet, and then he died

Jehoshaphat ruled after his father
Jehoram married Ahab's daughter
And then after king Ahaziah
Came the bad Queen Athaliah

She tried to end King David's line
But the high priest helped the youngest hide
So when he was seven years old
King Jehoash took the throne

He started out a good king
And had Jehovah's blessing
But then after Jehoiada's death
He sinned and left Judah a mess

For Amaziah, then Uzziah
Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah
And he showed faith when Assyria
Taunted him and Jehovah

Next was King Manasseh
Whose rule was a disaster
But he repented in the end
And gained God's favor back again

After his son, Amon, died
Young Josiah was next in line
Josiah was a zealous king
Who got rid of Ba'al worshiping

But after that, this song gets sad
'Cause every other king was bad
Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim
And his son, Jehoiachin

And last, his Uncle Zedekiah
Didn't listen to Jeremiah
So the Babylonians came
And put an end to Judah's kings!

(I tried to get the spellings right. I hope I didn't mess up!) -Lillie
