Oh I was the son of Obed
I lived in Bethlehem
You were the wife of Adam
Born from within him

The tree of my descendants
Boasts a heavy claim
The tree of your descent
Was branded sin and blame

I presented all the seven
I thought would fit into
The mould of the Gilded
The chair of the few

The youngest who attended
My flock while I stepped 'way
Was fittest for the burden
To carry on my name

And darling you were Daniel
I was the Lion's Den
Volatile with anger
But your prayer would keep it in

The longer I refused you
The more that I would feed
For later on the king would
Be swallowed whole by me

But baby I was Noah
You were my great ship
Gathering the planet
For a mighty good trip

And sadly we just couldn't
Gather every pair
And though we'd be remembered
We'd live our lives despaired

So I follow you to eden
It was better than the plains
And we'd hide amongst the treetops
For seven more days
