Essential Louis Armstrong (Remastered)


Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!

Now there were three children from the land of Isreal
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
Ah they took a little trip to the land of Babylon
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
And ol' Nebudchanezzer was the king of Babylon
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
So they took a lot of gold, and made ‘em an idol
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!

And they told everybody "when you hear the music of
the clarinet,"
They told everybody "when you hear the music of the
flute,"
"Now listen, children, when you hear the music of the
horn,"
"Oh, you gotta bow down and worship the idol!"
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!

Ah, but the children of Israel would not bow down!
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
"We aint' going to bow to no golden idol!"
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
No, you couldn't fool the children with the golden
idol!
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!

So the king cast the children in the fiery furnace
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
He heaped on coal and red-hot brimstone you couldn't
but see
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
Even made it seven times hotter than it oughtta be!
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
Now they burned up the soldiers that the king had put
there
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!
Oh, Shadrack! Meshach, Abednego!

Um hmm, then the Good Lord called an angel,
Gave him a couple of wings.
He said "go down there through the middle of the
furnace
And began to coolin' the flames."
And those children got so happy,
they went struttin' right through the fire.
And this lot got to talkin' bout the power of gospel
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego!

Oh, Shadrack! Meshach, Abednego!!!
