My mum (London/Bristol/East Africa...) used to sing something like:

Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego
Annoyed the King of Egypt, who told them they must go
He sent them down to Hell, but none of them got hurt
Cos the Lord provides his children with an asbestos shirt.

Is there any more of it? Does anyone know what the tune's called? (I've put up an MP3 here: http://elorganillero.com/downloads/mudcat/shadrach.mp3)

Ta Gerry, but while the three characters are the same, the song (tune & lyrics) is different. Yours is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadrack_(Robert_MacGimsey_song), but mine is something else.

"Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego
They none of them could please the King, so of course they had to go
He put them in the furnace to burn them up like chaff
But they wore asbestos underpants & gave the King the laugh"

fourth verse here,
"Darkie Sundayschool" thread
thread.cfm?threadid=43386&messag#2803422
I learned it as
"... couldn't pay their taxes so they had to go..."
"...and they began to laugh"in about 1960(cubs), so I assumed everyone knew it!
