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!

Chorus:
Go down Jonah
Deep in the Ocean
Go down Jonah
Far from the sure
(x2)
second time round descant
sing:
aaaaaaaaaaaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaaaaah
aaaaaaaah

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.

Chorus

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

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