The Lyrics

Belteshazzar was a well endowed eunuch
Interpreting dreams with consummate guise
Darius found him, of excellent spirit
A Jew grown se-MIN-al-ly wise

Sycophant satraps laid ‘litiggyous’ schemes
Entrapping under handed
Catch-22’s would assure his demise
He’d be gone

Daniel’s stormy blast from tyrants
Daniel would be cast to lions
Daniel weathered past in triumph

Laws were not changed with the Medes and the Persians
No legal course loopholes or pardoning crimes
Enemies watched as he talked to his Father
He chose to pray daily three times

Clout hungry cohorts would leer by his door
Preying like snakes while he prayed
Reporting back ‘duplicitonguely’ mouthed
They were wrong

Daniel got bad jawed by pythons
Daniel prayed to God sans license
Daniel to be gnawed by lions

How would you feel as a meal for the lions
With no dining manners and bloodthirsty eyes
Who had the moxie when lions aren’t docile
A Jew grown se-MIN-al-ly wise

Daniel in the den with lions
Daniel wasn’t friend to lions
Daniel found new Zen with lions
Daniel wasn’t food for lions
Daniel wasn’t chewed by lions
Daniel had his nuetered loins
Daniel had the balls for lions

Smart stuff. I could see a full Sgt Pepper tribute parody fully with Old Testament tales. That's not something I could accomplish, but I bet you could.

Great job plus it's a parody of a song I know.
