Solomon was the son of the Gentile adulteress
Bathsheba and David, Israel's greatest king
As king, he built the temple that God would not let his father build
And in his reign he asked God for two things, wisdom and knowledge
This is the song of Solomon

The Lord appeared to Solomon
And asked him in his dream
Just what would you want
If I would grant you anything

King Solomon said to the Lord
On riches I won't dwell
Just grant to me the wisdom Lord
To lead Your people well

When he woke the Lord had blessed
The throne on which he sat
And nobody ever caught him
Sleepin' after that

People heard about him
And came from far and wide
He'd lay his words of wisdom on
And open up their eyes

And didn't Solomon have it all together?
Didn't Solomon lead his people well?
Didn't Solomon have all together?
Don't his words ring clearly as a bell?

Two women came to Solomon
Both had given birth
I'm troubled though dear kindly king
Please help me said the first

One night while I lay sleeping
This woman's baby died
She laid its body on my bosom
Trading it for mine

The other woman said to him
That it was not true
And Solomon said bring the child
I'll tell you what we'll do

We'll divide him with a sword
And half to each disperse
The real mother cried, oh, no
Just give the child to her

And didn't Solomon have it all together?
Didn't Solomon lead his people well?
Didn't Solomon have all together?
Don't his words ring clearly as a bell?

Didn't Solomon have it all together?
