Help! Someone somewhere must know something! I have been looking for the words to these 2 songs now for going on probably 10-13 years. The titles are The Daniel Jazz, which I sung as a child in junior high chorus, and is the story of daniel in the lions den in 4 parts. (I also would like the tune/music/where could I get a copy of the tune on paper to this one) The other is called She Morag (definately phonetically spelled), and I heard this one on The Thistle and Shamrock about 1985. It was done all in Gaelic, and it was about Morag's wedding. Any help/leads would be appreciated. Thanks.

Catfeet There's a problem with my email. I can be reached at Incubus@ici.net

I have the album, but it's not the right song. Thanks for the lead, though.

There's a song about "Daniel Prayed' every morning, noon and night, oh Daniel served the living God, could this be close. It was popular awhile back with bluegrass gospel.

    'S i Mórag, 's i Mórag, 's i Mórag, a rinn a' bhanais;
    Mórag, 's i Mórag, a rinn a' bhanais ainmeil.
    Bha i dubh an uiridh agus tha i dubh am bliadhna,
    'S bha i dubh a h-uile latha chunna mise riamh i.

Way late, but we got one.

Apparently the Daniel Jazz is available from Chappell Music.It's a division of Warner Publishing.

Also, the words are from a poem, circa 1920. Some further information is at Planet Peschel's Annotation of "Gaudy Night"

    "The Daniel Jazz"

    By Vachel Lindsay
    from "The Daniel Jazz and Other Poems" (1920)

    Darius the Mede was a king and a wonder.
    His eye was proud, and his voice was thunder.
    He kept bad lions in a monstrous den.
    He fed up the lions on Christian men.

    Daniel was the chief hired man of the land.
    He stirred up the jazz in the palace band.
    He whitewashed the cellar. He shovelled in the coal.
    And Daniel kept a-praying:--"Lord save my soul."

    Daniel was the butler, swagger and swell.
    He ran up stairs. He answered the bell.
    And he would let in whoever came a-calling:--
    Saints so holy, scamps so appalling.
    "Old man Ahab leaves his card.
    Elisha and the bears are a-waiting in the yard.
    Here comes Pharaoh and his snakes a-calling.

    Here comes Cain and his wife a-calling.
    Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego for tea.
    Here comes Jonah and the whale,
    And the Sea!
    Here comes St. Peter and his fishing pole.

    Here comes Judas and his silver a-calling.
    Here comes old Beelzebub a-calling."
    And Daniel kept a-praying:--"Lord save my soul."
    Daniel kept a-praying:--"Lord save my soul."
    Daniel kept a-praying:--"Lord save my soul."

    His sweetheart and his mother were Christian and meek.
    They washed and ironed for Darius every week.
    One Thursdy he met them at the door:--
    Paid them as usual, but acted sore.

    He said:--"Your Daniel is a dead little pigeon.
    He's a good hard worker, but he talks religion."
    And he showed them Daniel in the lions' cage.
    His good old mother cried:--
    "Lord save him."
    And Daniel's tender sweetheart cried:--
    "Lord save him."

    And she was a golden lily in the dew.
    And she was as sweet as an apple on the tree
    And she was as fine as a melon in the corn-field,
    Gliding and lovely as a ship on the sea,
    Gliding and lovely as a ship on the sea.

    And she prayed to the Lord:--
    "Send Gabriel. Send Gabriel."

    King Darius said to the lions:--
    "Bite Daniel. Bite Daniel.
    Bite him. Bite him. Bite him!"

    Thus roared the lions:--
    "We want Daniel, Daniel, Daniel,
    Wewant Daniel, Daniel, Daniel.
    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

    Here the audience roars

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    And Daniel did not frown,
    Daniel did not cry.

    He kept on looking at the sky.
    And the Lord said to Gabriel:--

    The audience sings this with the leader, in the old negro tune.

    "Go chain the lions down,
    Go chain the lions down.
    Go chain the lions down."

    And Gabriel chained the lions,
    And Gabriel chained the lions,
    And Gabriel chained the lions,
    And Daniel got out of the den,
    And Daniel got out of the den,
    And Daniel got out of the den.
    And Darius said:--"You're a Chrisitian child,"
    Darius said:--"You're a Chrisitian child,"
    Darius said:--"You're a Chrisitian child,"
    And gave him his job again,
    And gave him his job again,
    And gave him his job again.

does anyone can tell me the meaning of some parts of daniel jazz?

i dont understand whats the meaning of this part, specially because this is between quotation marks:

And he would let in whoever came a-calling:--
Saints so holy, scamps so appalling.
"Old man Ahab leaves his card.
Elisha and the bears are a-waiting in the yard.
Here comes Pharaoh and his snakes a-calling.

Here comes Cain and his wife a-calling.
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego for tea.
Here comes Jonah and the whale,
And the Sea!
Here comes St. Peter and his fishing pole.

Here comes Judas and his silver a-calling.
Here comes old Beelzebub a-calling."

thanks

Rita
