Music Monday: A Good Name

by redguthrie

“A Good Name” by Shad

“I’ve got a good name, my first name came from slave in
In no time got promoted to the king’s right hand,
But no hype man, had to take the right stand.
When the king made a statue of gold he told the whole nation
That they had to bow down to it.
That, or get tossed in the furnace,
Shad and his boys said “Boss, you can burn us.”
We can’t serve this statue, it’s worthless.
The king was mad but Shadrach wasn’t nervous.
It must have been some strange phenomenon,
They walked straight through the fire, Chaka Khan.
Saved by faith stronger than flame,
If I’m half as great then I honour my name.
I’ve got a good name.”
