Lawyers and politicians are everywhere,

Silver tongued hypocrites running for office.

You sir, are the embodiment of integrity,

Does the law require taxes to be paid?

Now would that be Hebrew law or Roman law?

This Denarius has Caesar's head, right?

Everywhere you look and see Caesar's image,

return whatever it's stamped upon to him.

Everywhere you look and see God's image,

return whatever it's stamped upon to him.
