The Holy Bible: King James Version.
The Book of Daniel 3
Nebuchadnez'zar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
4 --Then a herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
5 -- that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnez'zar the king hath set up:
6 -- and whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
7 -- Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of music, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnez'zar the king had set up.
from Gospel According to Louis Armstrong
There was three children from the land of Israel
. . Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego
Took a trip to the land of Babylon
Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon
He took a lot of gold and made an idol
And he told everybody when you hear the music of the cornet
(sound of a cornet)
And he told everybody when you hear the music of the flute
(sound of a flute)
And he told everybody when you hear the music of the horn
(sound of a horn)
You must fall down and worship the idol
But the children of Israel would not bow down
Wouldn't fool em with a golden idol
I said you couldn't fool em with a golden idol
So the king put the children in a fiery furnace
He thrown coal and red-hot brimestone
Seven times hotter hotter than it oughta be
Burned up the soldiers that the king had put there
But the Lord sent an angel with the snowy white wings
Down in the middle of the furnace
Talking to the children about the power of the gospel
Well they couldn't even burn a hair on the head of Shadrach
Laughing and talking while the fire is jumping around
Old Nebuchadnezzar called "Hey there!"
(some guy shouts “hey there” in background.)
when he saw the power of the Lord
And they had a big time in the house of Babylon.
