Thread Name: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
This is part 5 of Jonah-man-Jazz!!

Verse 1:
When Jonah sank into the sea he closed his eyes and prayed
"Oh lord I'm very sorry, that your word I disobeyed"
If you will only come and save me I will do as you command,
Instead of treading water, let me tread upon the land!

Go down Jonah
Deep in the Ocean
Go down Jonah
Far from the sure
second time round descant

Verse 2:
When Jonah had repented him, the lord he didnt fail
Although the sea was tropical, he sent a long a whale
It promptly swam right up to jonah, and its mouth was open wide
But before he even knew it, poor Jonah was inside.


Verse 3:
And after swimming very hard for 3 days, if not 4
The whale came near to Ninevah and grounded on the shore
Wherat it gave a little shudder and its jaws were widelt flung,
And Jonah Came a strollin' out upon it's mighty tounge

(last line changes to "Safe once again on the Shore!"
