And he told everybody when they heard the music of the clarinet....... And he told everybody when they heard the music of the horn....... You must bow down and worship the idol Shadrach, (Meshach, Abednego) But the children of Israel would not bow down Not Shadrach, (Meshach, Abednego) You couldn't fool them with no golden idol Shadrach, (Meshach, Abednego) The king put the children in the fiery furnace (Oh Shadrach), Meshach, Abednego Heaped on the coals and the red-hot brimstone (Oh Shadrach), Meshach, Abednego Seven times hotter, hotter than it oughta be (Oh Shadrach), Meshach, Abednego Burnt up the soldiers that the king had put there Shad(Shad)rach(rach), Meshach, Abednego But the Lord sent an angel with snowy-white wings Down in the middle of the furnace (Yeah!) Talkin' to the children 'bout the power of the Gospel (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Couldn't even harm a hair on the head of Shadrach, (Meshach, Abednego) Laughin' and a-talkin' while the fire's a-chuggin' up (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Oh, Nebuchadnezzar called (Oh Yeah!) When he saw the power of the Lord And they had a big time in the house of Babylon (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) (Shadrach!) ++++++++++ As recorded by the GOLDEN GATE QUARTET: (Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) (Da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) (Da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo) Well, there were three children from the land of Israel (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) They took a little trip into the land of Babylon (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Well, they took a lot of gold and they made him an idol (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Well, they told ev'rybody when they heard the music of the cornet (Oh yeah) Oh, they told ev'rybody when they heard the music of the flute (Ooh-ooh) And they told ev'rybody when they heard the music of the horn Great God says you got to bow down and worship the idol (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) But the children of Israel would not bow down (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) You couldn't fool them with a golden idol (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) I said you couldn't fool them with a golden idol (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) So the king took the children in the fiery furnace (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) He heaped on coal and red-hot brimstone (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Made it seven times hotter, hotter than it ought to be (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) It even burned up the soldier the king had put there (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Well, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, wah! Then the Lord God sent an angel And he gave him a couple of wings So he moved on down to the fiery furnace And began to cool the flames Those children, they danced so happy They went struttin' right through the fire Just laughin' and singin' 'bout the power of the Gospel (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Well, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, wah! Then old Nebuchadnezzar said "Hey now" When he saw the power of the Lord They had a big time in the land of Babylon (Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego) Well, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego! +++++++++++ NB: For ease in singing, the Biblical name "Abednego" is usually sung as "Abendigo".
