Wisemen: Oh no! What we gonna do?

The king likes Daniel

More than me and you

Oh, no! What we gonna do?

We gotta get him out of here.

(Repeat)

 

Wiseman#1: We could throw him in the dungeon

We could let him rot in jail

We could drag him to the ocean

Have him eaten by a whale

 

Wiseman#3: We could throw him in the Tigris

Let him float a while

Then we'll all sit back and watch him

Meet a hungry crocodile

 

We could put him on a camel's back

And send him off to Ur

With a cowboy hat without a brim

A boot without a spur

 

We could give him jelly doughnuts

Take them all away

Or fill his ears with cheese balls

And his nostrils with sorbet

 

We could use him as a footstool

Or a table to play Scrabble on

Then tie him up and beat him up

And throw him out of Babylon

 

Wiseman#2: Or....(whispers)

 

Wiseman#1: I like it!

 

Wiseman#3: It's sneaky!

 

Wisman#1: And it just...

 

Wiseman #3: Might...

 

Wisman#2: Work!

 

Wisemen: We could use him as a footstool

Or a table to play Scrabble on

Then tie him up and beat him up

And throw him out of Babylon!
