King Darius Suite
King Darius: I am King Darius
I've had a dream
And now I'm feeling rather frightened
And I wish someone would tell me what it means.
Wiseman #1: We are your wisemen
Yes, that is true
And though we're using all our wisdom
We're afraid we can't explain your dream to you.
King Darius: What!?
Wiseman #2: But there is one who is wiser still
And Daniel is his name
So before you take another sleeping pill
Perhaps he can explain.
Daniel: My name is Daniel
That much is true
But it is God who gives me wisdom
And through me He will explain your dreams to you.
Maid: His name is Daniel
That's what he said
But when he talks about this God of his
I think he's kind of loony in the head. (I do.)
Narrator: Well, Daniel was able to explain the king's dream. And this
Made the king very happy.
King Darius: Daniel, you have enlightened me
Your job I will expand
From now on I want you to sit right beside me
As the second in command!
