When the kings go out to battle
and the soldiers go to war
he was up among the rooftops
knowing what he’d come there for
And he filled his heart with wishes
and as night gave way to morn
a man was dead and a babe was born
And lions roared

You can joke about the menu
You can read your magazine
You can hide behind the window
where you never will be seen
They will find you on the cable
after a long hard day at work
But take care, the man of God
fell with a look

There’s no time for hesitating
Oh be diligent this hour
Roaring lions, they are waiting
seeking whom they may devour

When the kings go out to battle
and the soldiers go to war
will you walk among the rooftops
knowing what you’ve come there for
And will you fill your heart with wishes
and as night gives way to morn
hear lions roar

There’s no time for hesitating
Oh be diligent this hour
Roaring lions, they are waiting
seeking whom they may devour
