Oh No! is a song sung in Where's God When I'm S-Scared?. It is sung when the wisemen (The Scallions) are trying to figure out what to do with Daniel. The Boyz in the Sink later did their version of the song.

Lyrics

Wisemen
Oh no! What we gonna do? The king likes Daniel more than me and you.
Oh no! What we gonna do? We gotta get him outta here!
Oh no! What we gonna do? The king likes Daniel more than me and you.
Oh no! What we gonna do? We gotta get him outta here!

Wisemen #2 & 3
We could throw him in the dungeon
We could let him rot in jail
We could drag him to the ocean
Have him eaten by a whale.

Wiseman #1
We could throw him in the Tigris let him float a while
Ten we'll all sit back and watch him meet a hungry crocodile.
We could put him on a camel's back and send him off to Ur
With a cowboy hat without a brim, A boot without a spur.

We could give him jelly doughnuts. Take them all away
Or we could fill his ears with cheese balls and his nostrils with sorbet.
We could use him as a footstool or a table to play Scrabble on.
Then tie him up and beat him up and throw him out of Babylon.

Wiseman #2: Or... (whispers to the others (#1 & 3))

Wiseman #1: I like it!

Wiseman #3: It's sneaky!

Wiseman #1: And it just...

Wiseman #3: might...

Wiseman #2: work!

Wisemen: We could use him as a footstool or a table to play Scrabble on.
Then tie him up and beat him up and throw him out of Babylon.
