1. The Lion's Den

From the recording Sally in the Doorway

When darkness falls I recall
Their voices filled with laughter
Now with faces pale, their plaintive wail
Will haunt me ever after
Children, where have you been?
“We’ve been cryin’ in the lion’s den”
When they saw the tooth and claw
They tiptoed past in vain
They could not sleep - They heard it creep
Across the grassy plain
The cat’s eyes hypnotize
Too late to feel alarm
No arms enfold - No mother holds
Her babe away from harm
Hush, little baby, don’t you cry
In the lion’s den
