People of America, I bring you a great army
To preserve peace in our empire
Throw them to the lions
Darling, let us go to the banquet hall
There will be a great feast tonight

Who are these Christians?
What is this strange religion?
I've heard it said they turn the other cheek

Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions, two thumbs down

Ten pieces of gold for every man
Hail Caesar, hail Caesar
Grapes from Sicily, silks from Asia Minor
All the tea in China

Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions

Who are these Christians?
Turn the other cheek

Two thumbs down
The Christians are restless
Why not let them worship their God?
No one believes in the old gods

How tiresome, attending the rituals
Paying lip service to the portents
Burning incense at their shrine
No one believes in the old gods

Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions

The Roman Empire, the glory of Rome
Hail, all hail
Caesar, Caesar, beware, beware, the ides of March

Who is this man? Caesar, he is but a soothsayer
He is old and his brain is addled, pay him no mind
Throw him to the lions

Hail Caesar Emperor of Rome, hail Caesar
Caesar, Caesar, beware, the ides of March
Hey, who is this man? Caesar, he is but an old soothsayer
Addled in his brain, pay him no mind

Throw him to the lions
Throw him to the lions
No one believes in the old gods
The empire is tired, Caesar will rest now

We depart for my chambers
Come darling, yes, Caesar
Caesar will rest now
Hail Rome, hail Caesar, hail
Put him in the fiery pit
