We've got some news, good King Darius
We fear your position is precarious
There are some people here in Babylon
Who won't give you your due
They'd rather bow to other men

Can this be so?
'Tis true, oh, dear

We've brought a solution of our own design
If you'll just sight this paper on the dotted line
It's an edict stating most concisely what we're all to do
We must bow our heads or bend our knees before no one but you

I see, just one more time, now, let's see if I've got this straight
A law to prove once and for all that I am great
If I'm the king, no one must doubt my full supremacy
So, from this day forth my citizens will pray to only me

Yes, but what if they don't? If they don't obey, any citizen
Will be thrown into the lion's den, oh yes, well, I guess that would do it
Alright then, good work, men, tah tah, so the law was passed
The deed was done, Daniel's troubles had just begun

Everyone in Babylon heard about the new law
Including Daniel but Daniel also knew God's law
And God's law told him that he should only pray to God
